We’ve all been waiting for some more news on the upcoming Aquaman sequel that’ll explore the mysteriously lost kingdom. James Wan has still remained coy on what exactly the film’s title is hinting at and what the future of the franchise has in store for us. We did learn that Dolph Lundgren would reprise his role back in October, as he shared an Instagram post with part of his wig already on from the set. It was an interesting surprise due to his role as King Nereus and it opened up many questions about how he might tie into the story.
In an interview with THR, the actor didn’t quite give away any details on what to expect but did tease that we can expect quite a bit of an upgrade from the previous entry. The films take place in Atlantis and it was no small task filming everyone in a way that makes them feel like they’re truly underwater. According to Lundgren, the effects have already come a long way to make that effect even easier and praise Wan‘s involvement.
That whole picture is just a class act. I think [Aquaman 2] is better. I think the script is stronger and it’s more exciting. The technology has moved forward in four years, so I was really pleased to be a part of it. James Wan is just going to blow everybody away again by this tremendous world that he creates. He’s involved in every little detail, even every little piece of every weapon, and I think it’s going to be great.
He’s certainly excited about the upcoming sequel and it’ll be interesting to see how the new technology may have changed elements from the production. We’ll likely not spend all the time underwater due to the adventure-vibe the first film gave off. With the first photo teasing an icy location, we’ll get quite a few new locations to explore in the sequel. If it’s anything like the first film, we’re in for a great time.
