That’s right Aquafans, Jason Mamoa is making his way back into the DC Extended Universe with his upcoming film “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom”! The details regarding the plot to the film has yet to be fully revealed. However, director James Wan did mention in his DC Fandome segment that “Black Manta is still seeking his vengeance to try to kill Aquaman”.
In a post-credits scene of 2018’s “Aquaman”, we saw Black Manta and a human researcher named Dr Shin agreeing to work together. Manta will show Shin how he got Atlantean technology if the good doctor will help him track the Aquaman. Wan has also described the plot as “a globe-trotting story” and that we would “visit different worlds”.
What does that mean? Is the lost kingdom a direct reference to the missing desert kingdom mentioned in “Aquaman”? Or will it be something entirely different? Only time will tell. Based on the previews, we can confirm that Jason Mamoa will be returning as Aquaman/Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Orm and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as David Kane / Black Manta. We can also assume that actor Randall Park will be reprising his role as Dr Shin.
It looks like Aquaman and Orm will be working together in some capacity. We’re curious to see if Orm the Ocean Master has truly repented of his past sins. Perhaps he holds the secret to the lost kingdom that Aquaman and Mera will be searching for.
