King of the seas! Aquaman, also known as Arthur Curry, is finally back on the big screen – and doing so in a whole new wardrobe.
In September 2021, Jason Momoa revealed that the superhero costume received a significant upgrade Aquaman 2, with official title Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. “Second round. New costume. More action”, the Game of Thrones Alum wrote via Instagram along with a photo of himself in the uniform, which is solid blue with dark silver touches. (His costume in the first film was yellow-orange and green, as it was in the beginning Aquaman comics.)
Arthur’s costume is not the only thing that changes in the second film, which will be released in cinemas in December 2022. Director James Wan |, who also directed the first film, said that the tone of the sequel is a little darker than that of the 2018 original.
“The second is a little more serious, a little more relevant to the world we live in today,” he said Magic said the director during a panel discussion in August 2020. “He wants to go there.”
In a separate interview, Wan cited a classic horror film as one of his main inspirations. The Lost Kingdom. “Aquaman 2 is very strongly inspired by Planet of the Vampires,” he said Total Film in August 2021, referring to Mario Bava’s 1965 film. “You can get the boy out of the horror, but you can never get the horror out of the boy.”
It may seem like a strange choice for Aquaman, but Wan is best known for his work on horror franchises, including The call, Saw and Sneaky. And while Arthur Curry’s Atlantis isn’t exactly scary, it certainly’s weird – people end up driving sharks there.
Momoa, for his part, insisted that the new film has more humor than the first, which was an unusually funny one that stood out in the often dark world of DC Comics-inspired films. “This time, I feel like we’re getting all the points, man.” Dune said the actor Phantom in September 2021. “Even on the page, it’s absolutely wonderful. So many things happen. I think the stakes are much higher. There is a lot of comedy. That is, I laughed reading [the script]. »
If The Lost Kingdom leaning more towards comedy or horror, it is clear that there will be tons of action – and perhaps more shark riding. Keep scrolling through everything we know so far Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom:
