Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is an upcoming American superhero film based on the DC character Aquaman. Produced by DC Studios, Atomic Monster, and the Safran Company, and set for distribution by Warner Bros. Pictures, it is intended to be the sequel to Aquaman (2018), and the 15th and final installment in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU). James Wan directs the film from a screenplay written by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick and stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry / Aquaman alongside Patrick Wilson, Amber Heard, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Dolph Lundgren, Randall Park, Temuera Morrison, and Nicole Kidman.
Momoa pitched a story for an Aquaman sequel during the first film’s production. Wan did not want to rush a sequel but agreed in January 2019 to oversee development. Johnson-McGoldrick signed to write the screenplay a month later, and Wan was confirmed to be directing in August 2020. He said the film would expand on Aquaman’s worldbuilding, and announced the sequel’s title in June 2021. Filming began at the end of the month and concluded in January 2022, taking place in the United Kingdom, Hawaii, Los Angeles, and New Jersey, with additional filming in New Zealand.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is scheduled to be released on December 20, 2023, following several delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic and post-production setbacks.
