Just a few days ago, DC released a teaser for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, revealing the return of a stronger and more determined villain Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II), as well as the high-stakes Aquaman (Jason Momoa) has to go up against.
Now that a full trailer has been dropped, we know what is at risk – family and the Kingdom of Atlantis.
In the new trailer, Arthur Curry aka Aquaman, reveals how much his life has changed since fans first saw him in Aquaman (2018). He is now a husband, a father, and the ruler of Atlantis. Arthur seems incredibly content with the relationships he has with his family and his job, but his peace is disrupted when a revengeful Black Manta aims to destroy everything he holds dear.
The trailer later shows Arthur’s mother Atlanna (Nicole Kidman) in a high-speed chase and his father Tom’s (Temuera Morrison) house being burned down. We also see the hero reunite with his half-brother Orm (Patrick Wilson) to protect Atlantis and save the world from irreversible destruction.
Amber Heard’s Mera also makes a brief appearance in the trailer.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is directed by James Wan and is produced by Peter Safran, Wan and Rob Cowan. Galen Vaisman and Walter Hamada executive produce. The movie releases in theatres on 20 December 2023.
