The upcoming American superhero film Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is based on the DC Comics character Aquaman.
It is supposed to be the sequel to Aquaman (2018) and the thirteenth film in the DC Extended Universe, produced by DC Films, The Safran Company, and Atomic Monster Productions, and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures (DCEU).
Jason Momoa stars opposite Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Temuera Morrison, and Nicole Kidman in the film directed by James Wan from a script written by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick.
During the production of the first Aquaman film, Momoa presented a story for a sequel.
Wan did not want to rush a sequel, but consented to oversee its production in January 2019.
A month later, Johnson-McGoldrick signed on to write the screenplay, and Wan was announced as the director in August 2020.
He stated that the sequel would expand on Aquaman's worldbuilding and that the title would be revealed in June 2021.
Filming in the United Kingdom, Hawaii, and Los Angeles began at the end of the month and ended in January 2022.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is set to be released on March 17, 2023.
After 45 days from its release, the film should be released to watch on HBO Max.
