“Aquaman 2” Has Officially Wrapped Production
We’re officially one big step closer to seeing director James Wan’s Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. Wan took to Instagram to reveal that production has officially wrapped. The post shows Wan, Aquaman himself Jason Momoa, and Patrick Wilson, who plays Orm, looking pretty thrilled on a beach in Malibu, California. Here’s what Wan has to say in the post:
And finally, finally, finally picture wrap on the actual last day of #Aquaman2 in Malibu with these two gents @prideofgypsies @thereelpatrickwilson Yes, we do get very wet, a lot, on this show.
A THOUSAND THANK YOUs to all the incredible crew who worked so hard and tirelessly on this picture. Especially the UK portion where we shot 95% of the film. Truly some of the finest artisans and craftspeople I’ve had the good fortune to work with. And big shouts to the amazing Hawaiian and Los Angeles units.
I have a very long way to go before it will be ready, but I can’t wait to share this little film with you all.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom isn’t due until December 16, 2022, so we’ve got a while to wait until we see it. If we were the betting sort, we’d say the first official trailer could be released sometime this spring. The sequel to Wan’s 2018 Aquaman returns a lot of the big names. Joining Momoa and Wilson are returning champions Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Amber Heard as Mera, Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry, Nicole Kidman as Atlanta, and Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus. Newcomers include Jane Zhao as Stingray, Indya Moore as Karshon, and Game of Thrones’ scene-stealer Pilou Asbæk in an undisclosed role (almost certainly a villain).
While the plot is being kept under wraps, here’s the brief synopsis”
“When an ancient power is unleashed, Aquaman must forge an uneasy alliance with an unlikely ally to protect Atlantis, and the world, from irreversible devastation.”
