After his return to horror with “Malignant”, James Wan returned to a big Hollywood machine with “Aquaman and The Lors Kingdom”. Jason Momoa announces on video that the shooting has just ended.
A second solo adventure for Aquaman
The launch of a DC Extended Universe in theaters was not as perfectly thought out as that of competitor Marvel. The films nevertheless managed to be big box office successes. In this case, Aquaman was a resounding one, with 1.148 billion dollars collected around the world. A financial success behind which is James Wan, defector of genre cinema, who has made the big leap to more expensive productions. He will always be there for the sequel that bears the title Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom.
The content of the script has not been revealed but we think we understand that it will be a question of the city Necrus. An underwater city dominated by the tyrant Mongo. It has the strange specificity of moving around without being in the same place twice. Comic book readers who are familiar with the character’s universe know what we’re talking about.
For the occasion, a large part of the cast is back. Amber Heard, Yahya Abdul-Mateen, Randall Park, Patrick Wilson and Dolph Lundgren will reprise all the roles they are known to have and the film has a release date set at December 14, 2022.
The shots are finished
A whole year separates us from its appearance on the screen. The creative process is progressing rather well because we learn that the shooting has just ended. It was the main actor Jason Momoa who released the news on his account Instagram, with a small video recorded in Hawaii:
The interested party must be happy to have finished with the shots (reshoots are still possible for a production of this ilk) so much he suffered several injuries during these.
We were hoping that a teaser would be revealed during the DC Fandome last October. The studio has decided to wait and the first images will certainly drop in the coming months. It should be understood, however, that the film is not DC / Warner’s top priority because The batman, Black adam and The Flash must come out before.
