In the realm of superhero cinema, few characters have made as big of a splash as Jason Momoa’s Aquaman. With his charismatic portrayal of the underwater hero, Momoa has captured the hearts of audiences around the world. Now, it seems that Aquaman’s aquatic adventures are far from over, according to director James Wan.
As we eagerly anticipate the release of “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” it’s clear that there’s more to come for this beloved character. Director James Wan has dropped tantalizing hints about the possibility of a third Aquaman film, and it’s making waves in the DC Universe.
Wan envisions a deeper evolution of Aquaman as a character, with the second film serving as a stepping stone for even greater growth and development in a potential third installment. The upcoming Aquaman movie promises to build on the foundation laid in the second film, taking the characters to new heights.
In “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” Jason Momoa reprises his role as Arthur Curry, the enigmatic hero of Atlantis. But the intrigue doesn’t stop there. Warner Bros., DC, and director James Wan are exploring uncharted waters, hinting at more adventures to come. While Momoa has been linked to another DC role as Lobo, the magnetic pull of Aquaman remains strong, thanks to the character’s box office success and his undeniable appeal to fans and executives alike.
FilmSweep’s Taylor Gates had the privilege of attending a special press preview of the trailer for “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” where director Wan shed light on the future of the Aquaman series. Responding to comments from DC chief Peter Safran suggesting a trilogy for Momoa’s Aquaman, Wan tantalizingly stated:
“What I can share is that the journey of Jason Momoa as Aquaman is far from over. And yes, when we reach the conclusion of this film, the answer is yes. But I can’t delve too deep into that without revealing too much. The way we wrap up this movie hints at something significant, or maybe not ‘bigger’ but definitely a path for the story. I’m holding back because it’s all part of the thrilling end of the movie!” [Laughs]
Wan had previously expressed his desire to witness Momoa’s character evolve over a third film. He has observed Arthur Curry’s transformation from a wanderer to a king across the first two films, and if the Aquaman saga continues, Wan envisions characters who are comfortable with the roles they’ve been thrust into and who continue to grow on-screen.
“What I appreciate about the journey between the first film and this one is the evident growth of Arthur,” Wan noted. “He begins as a wanderer, and in the second installment, he finds a clearer sense of purpose. If, and when, there’s a third film, that should be the focus: character growth. We’ve set the stage in the second movie, and there’s fertile ground to explore in a third. While I can’t share specific stories just yet, developing these characters should be the heart of the next Aquaman adventure.”
Mark your calendars for December 20 when “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” splashes into theaters. In the meantime, dive into the first teaser trailer and prepare for more epic underwater adventures with Jason Momoa’s Aquaman. The tide of excitement is rising, and the future of Aquaman in the DC Universe looks brighter than ever.
