The first film had a budget of almost US $ 200 million, and the second will surely have a similar one, since it is a blockbuster more focused on fantasy and science fiction, unlike other installments of the franchise that tend to have more in common with traditional superhero stories. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is scheduled to premiere in December 2022, and in addition to having back to Jason Momoa Y Amber Heard in the lead roles, he will have Patrick Wilson like Orm, Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II like Black Manta.
The first appearance of Jason Momoa as Aquaman came on Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, in a very short cameo near the end. His true introduction to the DC cinematic universe was in League of Justice, film that was destroyed by critics and that did not even convince the fans. It took almost four years for us to see the original version of the film as he envisioned it Zack Snyder. Thanks to an intense fan campaign Zack Snyder’s Justice League – 82% saw the light on HBO Max, but with important contradictions regarding Aquaman, which makes it non-canonical within the continuity of current installments. The best example is that the Atlanteans do not speak underwater, but communicate with sounds that evoke a marine animal, and to speak with words they must make an air bubble under water.
Aquaman used to be a superhero who did not command much respect, due to his portrayal in the cartoon of The super friends, but thanks to Snyder already Jason Momoa, is now considered one of the best elements of the DCEU.
