Aquaman 2 Release Date: One of the most eagerly awaited DC Extended Universe movies is Aquaman 2. The movie, whose official title is “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” continues the tale of Arthur Curry’s transformation into Aquaman and details what happened following Atlantis’ fight with the surface world.
The first Aquaman movie aided in saving the DCEU from the criticism that Justice League’s theatrical edit had received. The sequel’s release date has been moved all the way back to December 25, 2023, from when it was originally scheduled for March 17, 2023.
This article will go through everything we currently know about Aquaman 2, including the main characters and narrative points. Given everything that has happened with the Flash film, Aquaman 2 might be a wonderful opportunity for DCEU to succeed.
Aquaman 2 Plot
In order to prevent a war between the undersea realm of Atlantis and the rest of the planet, Arthur Curry reluctantly decides to claim his inheritance as King of Atlantis. This is the story of the first movie. His choice launches a global quest as he looks for King Atlan’s trident. But it seems like his new moniker will just make the sequel’s secrets and other puzzles more mysterious.
The eighth Atlantean kingdom in comic books is named Necrus (the working title for the movie!) and it flits in and out of our plane of existence depending on the position of an extraterrestrial satellite that circles the planet. Sounds fairly disoriented to us. It’s unclear why Arthur is looking for (yet another) secret place linked to Atlantis, but according to Wan, it will expand the DCEU even further. The sequel’s hero will “explore so many other realms,” the director assured the DC FanDome audience.
Of course, it won’t just be Aquaman taking in the sights for two hours. As the Black Manta and Orm/Ocean Master, respectively, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Patrick Wilson will return. Following his loss in the first movie, it will be intriguing to watch how Orm and Arthur interact going forward. It’s likely that he will come back in a situation much to Thor/Loki (to borrow from a rival universe) where the brothers reluctantly cooperate.
David Hyde/Black Manta was last seen promising to exact retribution on Momoa’s hero for killing his father and outdueling him in combat. But he also joins forces with Dr. Stephen Shin, an authority on Atlantis. Interesting. Aquaman should be careful behind him.

When Does ‘Aquaman 2’ Take Place?
It’s uncertain where in the larger DC Comics canon Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom will take place due to WB’s new emphasis to less interconnected, more focused, and isolated stories. It’s obvious from the cast and information so far that the film is not a prequel and will deal with the events of the first Aquaman, but it is still unclear how it will connect to the upcoming Flash, Shazam, and Batgirl films.
