16-09-23 | Despite the lacklustre reception of recent DC movies and the imminent reboot of the franchise, Warner Bros. soldiers on with Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. Today its theatrical trailer was released, plunging us into mystical Atlantis once more. The film deals with Aquaman’s duty to protect Atlantis against a sinister intruder.
The lovable Jason Momoa is back as Aquaman, as is Amber Heard in her first major role since her controversial trial against former husband Johnny Depp. Filming of Aquaman 2 wrapped shortly before the story broke and Heard’s role seems to be downplayed in the trailer. Also returning is director James Wan, known for co-creating the Saw and Conjuring franchises.
