Aquaman 2 is officially in works and fans are excited for the sequel to hit the theaters. The first Aquaman movie redefined the character and Jason Momoa made Arthur Curry a badass superhero which was kind of a joke in the comics. James Wan will once again handle the role of director as he was the main reason why Aquaman grossed over a billion dollars at the box office.
Aquaman sequel was officially confirmed by Warner Bros Studios just after the release of the first movie. Here is everything you need to know about Aquaman 2 release date, trailer, cast, plot spoilers and connection with other DC movies.
Aquaman 2 Trailer and Release Date
Aquaman 2 is slated to release in theaters on December 16, 2022, which will be around four years after the first Aquaman’s release. The filming for Aquaman sequel will start next year as the script is still not final stages. DC movies calendar is kind of uncertain, unlike the Marvel movies which have announced their movies slate for the next few years. Aquaman 2 trailer can be expected to come out around the start of 2022 as it will be enough time to get some teaser footage.
