Production on the Aquaman sequel has official begun development. Rumour has it the (working) title for the sequel is Aquaman: The King Dead and is slated for a 2022 release. With that also comes news that a writer is attached. David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, who co-wrote the first flick, is on board again for the sequel.
But it looks like James Wan may not be directing the sequel, but however will remain on as a producer alongside Peter Safran.
As for actors, Jason Momoa is certainly returning as the aquatic King alongside Amber Heard’s Mera. And if we are to go by the post-credit ‘cliffhanger’, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s Black Manta will be the nemesis (or one of, at least) for the second go around.
More news as things develop.
