Release Date

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is scheduled to be released in the United States on December 25, 2023. It was originally set for release on December 16, 2022 but was pushed back almost a year to give the filmmakers more time to work on it.

Jason Momoa will be back as the powerful half-human half-Atlantean superhero Arthur Curry/Aquaman. Also returning are Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Orm Marius/Ocean Master, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as David Kane/Black Manta.

The official plot details for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom are being kept under wraps by Warner Bros and DC. Director James Wan has stated that the sequel will be “more serious” and “a little bit more relevant to the world that we’re living in today.”

While the story details remain scarce, the movie has been described as a “buddy comedy” between Aquaman and his half-brother King Orm by producer Peter Safran. So we can expect plenty of banter and comedic moments between the two siblings.

Black Manta will likely return as the main villain seeking vengeance from Aquaman. We will probably see the heroes travel to fantastic underwater locations like Atlantis and other sunken kingdoms. There will be epic aquatic battles as Aquaman defends the oceans from threats.


Unfortunately there is no trailer for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom yet. The teaser trailer is expected to release soon as we are less than a year away from the movie’s release. Once the first official trailer drops, it will give us a proper glimpse of the story, visuals, action set pieces, and underwater landscapes.
