Jason Momoa Unleashes His Inner Fatherly Side in the New ‘Aquaman & The Lost Kingdom’ Trailer
The Big Reveal
In the upcoming Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, get ready to witness the return of a vengeful Black Manta, thirsting for payback against the King of Atlantis, and wielding a formidable ancient artifact known as the Black Trident. Arthur Curry, our aquatic hero, will have to team up with his former rival, Orm, to thwart Black Manta’s nefarious plans and safeguard Atlantis from the cataclysmic power of this artifact.
While this film is set to be the culmination of the current iteration of the DCEU (DC Extended Universe), the big question looming over fans’ heads is whether Jason Momoa will dive back into the role of Aquaman in the future. However, there’s a twist – he might still continue to collaborate with DC, just not in the way we expect.
The latest trailer for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, recently dropped by Warner Bros., offers a peek into Arthur Curry’s life as both a hero and a father. Yes, you heard that right – Aquaman is a daddy now! The trailer showcases Aquaman engaging in some heart-to-heart talk with his baby about the responsibilities that come with ruling Atlantis, not to mention the lives of millions hanging in the balance. It appears that the bravest hero the ocean has ever seen is gearing up for what could be his darkest adventure yet.
Throughout his superhero career, Arthur Curry has faced a multitude of formidable threats, but Black Manta (played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II), with his burning desire for revenge, stands out as one of the fiercest adversaries. Introduced in the first Aquaman film, Black Manta vowed to settle the score with the King of Atlantis. His weapon of choice? The Black Trident, a menacing artifact capable of rivaling Aquaman’s incredible power. To stand a chance against this formidable foe, Arthur will need to join forces with Orm (played by Patrick Wilson), despite their previous mortal showdown.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom picks up the storyline five years after the first installment splashed its way to over $1 billion at the global box office. In that film, directed by James Wan, we learned that Arthur’s mother, Queen Atlanna (portrayed by Nicole Kidman), was still alive, and Orm had been scheming in the shadows to seize the throne. Arthur also made appearances in other DC projects like Justice League and Peacemaker, serving as a crucial link in the expansive DC Extended Universe. But now, the franchise is poised for closure, making way for a new era in the DCU.
Will ‘The Lost Kingdom’ Truly Mark the End of Aquaman?
While Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom may conclude the current era of DCEU Aquaman films, it’s anyone’s guess whether Jason Momoa will ever slip back into the scaly suit in the future. The actor has dropped hints about continuing to collaborate with DC, but the details remain shrouded in mystery. James Gunn and Peter Safran might have a different role in mind for him in their new shared DC universe, although nothing has been officially confirmed yet. The inaugural film in this revamped franchise is Superman: Legacy, introducing David Corenswet as the fresh take on the Man of Steel.
