Jason Momoa will reprise his role as Arthur Curry/Aquaman in the sequel. Amber Heard will also be back as Mera, alongside Patrick Wilson as Orm, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as David Kane/Black Manta. However, it’s unclear if either Orm or Black Manta will be the sequel’s primary villain. Pilou Asbaek was also recently cast in a supporting role.

Momoa also had a hand in creating the sequel’s story, before handing it off to James Wan and returning screenwriter David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick. For now, further details are unknown.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will hit theaters on December 16, 2022.
