Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom wraps shoot director James Wan shares a new BTS pic
To celebrate the end of production James Wan took to Instagram to share a BTS picture with Jason Momoa and Patrick Wilson
Aquaman: The Lost Kingdom was announced shortly after the release of Aquaman which arrived in 2018. The movie was a bright spot for DC fans as movies from the DC universe were turning out to be duds with exception of Wonder Woman.
The film starring Jason Momoa was well received by critics and fans and grossed over $1.4 billion worldwide becoming one the biggest hits in the DC cinematic universe and for Warner Bros.
In a photo shared by James Wan, we see Patrick Wilson and Jason Momoa share a lighter moment with the director. The director shared the post calling it a wrap on the project. While Wilson did play the villain in Aquaman this may be an indication of a team-up between Aquaman and his Half brother Orm.
While plot details for the sequel are limited it is confirmed that Black Manta played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II will serve as the main villain, which is not surprising as the post-credit scene in Aquaman teased this with Black Manta agreeing to help Dr. Stephen Shin, a marine scientist who is obsessed with finding Atlantis.
Jason Momoa catapulted to international stardom with Aquaman after his impressive yet short stint on Game of Thrones as Khal Drogo. The actor was introduced as Authur Curry, the heir to the lost kingdom of Atlantis in Justice League where he starred with Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Ben Affleck, Henry Cavil and Ray Fisher.
The rest of the cast in the Aquaman sequel includes Nicole Kidman as Atlaana, Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus, Amber Heard as Mera, Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry, and Randall Park as Stephen Shin.
Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom is set to premiere on December 16, 2022.
