Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom news, release date, cast and ploton September 15, 2023 at 12:15 Tech Advisor


Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will once again take audiences to the underwater world and, for the last time, to the DC universe as we know it. James Gunn and Peter Safran, the new heads of DC Films, are rebooting the franchise, and it’s still unsure if there is a place for a king of Atlantis.

The Aquaman (aka Arthur Curry) we know today debuted in 2017’s Justice League. Thanks to Jason Momoa, the heir to the throne of Atlantis lost his goofy comic book appearance and became an iconic ruler of the seas.

The first solo film about Arthur’s adventures, titled Aquaman, was directed by James Wan, famous for his horror movies. It covers the hero’s origins and tells the story of his fight against sinister brother Orm, who aims to destroy the human world. The engaging and visually attractive tale won over audiences, so the announcement of a second Aquaman movie came as no surprise.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom release date

Expected: Wednesday, 20 December 2023

The release date of Aquaman has been postponed several times. Initially, the film was set to premiere at the end of 2022, but it was later pushed to spring 2023. According to the latest information, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will debut in theatres on Wednesday, 20 December 2023.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom plot

So far, the creators haven’t revealed too many details about the plot of the new Aquaman movie. At this point, we only know that the superhero will have to defend the world… again. Everything indicates that Atlantis’s inhabitants will conflict with a mysterious underwater city called Necrus.

However, it is certain that Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will have a different vibe than the first film. As James Wan stated at the DC FanDome in 2020:

The second one is a little bit more serious, a little more relevant to the world we’re living in today.

Warner Bros.

Instead of light, colourful entertainment, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will offer viewers a darker take on the underwater world. It’s worth noting that Wan drew inspiration from the Italian giallo horror film titled Planet of the Vampires.
