What is the release date of the movie Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom?
Announced in December 2018, the filming of Aquaman 2 produced by Warner Bros. does not begin until June 2021. The release of Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is even postponed following the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic which hit the world between 2020 and 2021. Indeed, the film, very generous in special effects, suffers from the delays accumulated by the studios responsible for producing the CGI. The feature film is finally scheduled to be released on the big screen on March 17, 2023.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will point the tip of its nose in French movie theaters March 17, 2023, as previously stated. Regulars of SVOD services will have to be patient, because they will have to wait 17 months before seeing the feature film arrive on a streaming platform. Indeed, the chronology of the media set up in France fixes the order and the times of diffusion that a cinematographic work must follow after its release in the cinema.
Who is Aquaman?
Created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger in 1941, Arthur “Aquaman” Curry is one of the most important superheroes in the DC Universe. King of the mythical Atlanteans, this half-human, half-Atlantean character has a panoply of powers, each more impressive than the next. Between his superhuman strength, telepathic control of aquatic life, and the ability to use magic, this founding member of the Justice League along with Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman is a force not to be overlooked and an iconic figure in DC.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is the 13th feature film in the DC Cinematic Universe (or DCEU for DC Extended Universe) and takes place after the events of the first Aquaman released in 2018. This second part of the adventures of the King of the Atlanteans in the cinema takes place after the defeat of Steppenwolf, fallen general of the legions of the supervillain Darkseid. This New God was seen in the Snyder’s Cut of the film Justice League directed by… Zack Snyder (Watchmen, Rebel Moon)
What is the synopsis of the movie Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom?
The codename of the Necrus project suggests that this kingdom, which has made several appearances in DC comics, would be the central element of the plot. First appearing in Aquaman #30 in 1966, the realm of Necrus known as the Black City, is a sunken empire much like that of Atlantis. This one appears in the comics when an alien ship enters Earth’s orbit. This then disrupts the Earth’s magnetic field and opens a dimensional portal through which the city emerges, a city ruled by the tyrant Mongo. In The Lost Kingdom, Aquaman will team up with an unlikely ally in order to protect his kingdom as well as planet Earth. The King of the Atlanteans will join forces with his half-brother Ocean Master and face Black Manta, more determined and powerful than ever.
Who are the creatives behind the movie Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom?
The production of DC Comics is very well served. We find in the scenario David Leslie Johnson-McGloldrick, who notably worked on the first Aquaman movie. The soundtrack is entrusted to Rupert Gregson-Williams whose work on Wonder Woman and also Aquaman can be appreciated. Michael Gowen, the artistic director of Jumanji, brings his touch to the work. To finish, Anne McCarthy (Aquaman), Kellie Roy (Aquaman) and Lucinda Syson (Wonderwoman) took charge of the casting of the feature film.
What is the cast of the movie Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom?
This second part of Aquaman has a cast of choice with Jason Momoa headlining as Aquaman, Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man: No Way Home) in Nuidis Vulko and Nicole Kidman (The Northman) in Atlanta. Patrick Wilson (The Conjuring) and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Ambulance, Matrix Resurrections) confirm that they will be reprising their respective roles as Ocean Master and Black Manta. The highly controversial Amber Heard (Never Back Down) would once again portray the character of Mera, although her presence was significantly reduced.
