The highly anticipated follow-up to 2018’s Aquaman will show the King of Atlantis’s ongoing adventure facing new threats in the underwater world. Earlier in October during DC FanDome, a 2 min behind-the-scenes video offered glimpses of Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry, Patrick Wilson’s Ocean Master and the sequel’s supervillain, Black Manta (Yahya Abdul Mateen II). Nevertheless, plot details still remain in wrap though Wan had this to say during the DC event:
“The second one is a little bit more serious, a little more relevant to the world we’re living in today. That’s where it wants to go.”
Production on Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom began in July but the film faced a brief halt after Jason Momoa contracted covid-19 and faced quarantine according to UK health regulations. Fortunately, filming resumed after the star’s recovery. A new online update suggests that the next location is in Oahu’s Hālona Beach Cove, Hawaii.
