DC FanDome is just around the corner and it may offer some insight into future projects. Among them is the sequel to 2018’s Aquaman movie. After its massive box office success, it was only a matter of time before they’d start work on a sequel. In June, production started as director James Wan shared the first photo from the set. We got a new photo from the production, but this time from Dolph Lundgren. In his latest Instagram post, he confirms he’s returning to play King Nereus.
It’s great to see Lundgren return in the role and that he gets to keep his red hair from the first. The absence of a beard is quite interesting. They might still be in the middle of adding the fake beard, or they chose to keep it out this time around. The post doesn’t give away anything on what role he might have in the film. Arthur Curry might try to make amends for his brother’s actions as he brings the kingdoms back together.
Of course, there’s also the question of what the mysterious Lost Kingdom might be. The first set photo teased an icy cave, which might hint that their next threat is hiding in the Antarctic. Jason Momoa shared a new stealth suit back in September, which might be how he enters the new region. It makes you wonder if he’ll get joined in his adventure. Perhaps Lundgren has a larger role this time around and will also infiltrate the lost kingdom.
