MANILA, Philippines—Director James Wan reunites with Aquaman himself, Jason Momoa, along with a stellar cast including Patrick Wilson, Amber Heard, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Nicole Kidman, for the highly-anticipated sequel to the highest-grossing DC film of all time: “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.” Dive into this epic adventure exclusively in cinemas on December 20.
Having previously failed to vanquish Aquaman, Black Manta remains unwavering in his quest to avenge his father’s death, and he’s now armed with the formidable power of the mythic Black Trident, unleashing a malevolent ancient force. To confront this looming threat, Aquaman must forge an unlikely alliance with his imprisoned brother, Orm, the former King of Atlantis.

Additionally, Dolph Lundgren returns as King Nereus, and Randall Park as Dr. Stephen Shin.
