DC unveils the first official Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom movie trailer. Ahead of DC Studios’ relaunch of the DC Extended Universe into the new DC Universe, Jason Momoa’s second solo outing as the aquatic superhero will serve as the unofficial end of the franchise, while following on from the events of 2018’s Aquaman. Much of the first film’s stars are back in the Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom cast, allowing returning director James Wan to tell a suitable followup story.
That story takes shape in the Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom trailer, which has been released online by DC. The new footage reveals that Aquaman 2 picks up four years after the events of the first movie and find Arthur Curry (Momoa) as both a father and the King of Atlantis.
The trailer shows that when Black Manta returns (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) and threatens everything Arthur holds dear, the aquatic superhero teams up with his half-brother Orm (Patrick Wilson) in order to fight to protect Atlantis. In addition to the trailer, DC unveiled the official poster for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, which can be viewed below.
