With filming on the highly anticipated sequel to 2018’s billion-dollar blockbuster looking to ramp up its production in June, we were bound to hear some news on it sooner than later. Plot details for the film have been kept under wraps and it’s unknown as to who or where we’ll see our new king of Atlantis off too next, but it seems that we have a new addition to the film. Deadline has unveiled that Game of Thrones actor Pilou Asbaek, best know for his role as Euron Greyjoy of the Iron Islands, will come to face former Khal Drogo, Jason Momoa, in the upcoming sequel for the film.
It’s unknown who Asbaek will be playing in the film, as they remain secretive. Just a few weeks ago, we reported on casting breakdowns for the sequel going around. One character in particular named Kore. The role was for an actor in the 40-50-year-old range and looked to be for a villain as he was described as “domineering and cunning,” which could be a perfect role for Asbaek. The role in question I believe to be that of Corum Rath, an Atlantean eco-terrorist who sought to bring the war to the surface world who sought to overthrow Arthur.
Aquaman 2 is currently set to release on December 16th, 2022 with James Wan returning too direct. The film will also feature the return of Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Willem Dafoe.
