It’s safe to say that Warner Bros. Discovery is a bit in shambles. At the moment, we have no idea what exactly they are trying to do moving forward. It was hinted that they are trying to establish a singular DC Universe but also continue work on Joker and The Batman sequels. Some older projects from the original DCEU under Walter Hamada‘s run are still in development, such as Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
While the drama surrounding The Flash and Ezra Miller has already overshadowed most of the upcoming projects, the Aquaman sequel wasn’t safe from it either. Amber Heard‘s trial with Johnny Depp has also thrown a shadow over the project with uncertainty about how much she’ll actually be featured in the sequel. While there is a lot of back and forth on the exact number, its main star Jason Momoa used the chance to tease a lot more comedy in the sequel while promoting his series See.
In an interview with Variety, he talked about what it was like having Ben Affleck back on the set. He teases that there will be “way more humor” and that they had “a lot of laughs” while filming it. So, it seems that the tone from the first entry will return and even double down. There’s no exact details on how the story will be, but they have been rumors hinting at an unlikely duo of Aquaman and his half-brother Ocean Master having to team-up throughout their adventure. So, it sounds like it could be another blast at the theater.
