At the end of 2018, Aquaman by director James Wan was an unexpected great success. The DC Extended Universe movie that followed Justice League grossed over a billion at the worldwide box office. A sequel was soon announced, for the end of 2022.
And that year is fast approaching and so the cameras have to start quickly. According to Discussing Film, shooting for Aquaman 2 will start next June in the UK and there is a working title: Necrus .
Although work titles often say nothing about the film itself, Necrus is, like Atlantis, a DC underwater world, but it has a much less stable existence. The so-called “Black City” is led by the tyrant Mongo and the population lives in oppression. In the comics there have been fights between Necrus and Atlantis.
Aquaman 2 in 2022
Earlier director Wan indicated that the second film will have a more horror-like feel and it could be that Mongo plays a certain role in it. Incidentally, the spin-off The Trench has yet to be released, although we have heard little about it recently.
With at least Jason Momoa again as underwater superhero Arthur Curry aka Aquaman, the second part is scheduled for December 16, 2022.
