Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s Black Manta is also seen. “I’m going to kill Aquaman and destroy everything he holds dear,” he said.

A message from director James Wan was played before the footage, where he promised “this sequel has everything you love about the first film but more”.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom premieres on December 20, 2023 and will be the penultimate DC Extended Universe film before Safran and Gunn’s DCU takes over. There’s no word on a continuation of Momoa’s character in that universe yet, though the actor is hopeful that he’ll be involved.
