After the success of the first Aquaman film, which was the first DCEU film to gross a billion dollars at the box office, fans are now looking forward to the sequel Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom which will continue Arthur Curry and Mera's underwater journey. The film has been in production for a few months and, now, it looks like they are finally done.
Per ComicBook.com, Jason Momoa announced in his series of Instagram stories that filming for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom has finally wrapped. He said in the video, "Aw man, that's a wrap. That's a wrap, Aquaman 2. I have so much to share with you, I wish...I could tell you so much. What an epic day. I love you. So good to have been home to finish this, so many good surprises. Love you and...it's been a long time. I'm taking a break. Aloha."
If you look at Momoa's recent Instagram posts and stories, it seems that production wrapped on-location in Hawaii, where the actor is also currently taking a break right now to celebrate after months of working for the film.
It is great to hear that production has finally wrapped for the sequel as it means that they are now heading to post-production, which will be the final stage of production before we get to see the film next year. It's also nice to see that Momoa is taking a well-deserved break after several months of grueling work in the film.
Little is still known about the plot details of the film but given that Black Manta and Orm are going to return, it looks like the story might revolve around those characters on vengeance after the events of the first film.
Besides Momoa, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom features the return of Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Temuera Morrison, and Randall Park. New cast members of the film include Vincent Regan, Jani Zhao, Indya Moore, and Pilou Asbæk. James Wan also returned to direct the film.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is set to be released in theaters on December 16, 2022.
