What It Was Like To Make Aquaman 2 As The DC Universe Got Rebooted

No shade to the Snyderbros out there, but that sort of serious realism doesn’t fit with a character as, well, ridiculous as Aquaman … especially one played by Jason Momoa. And especially a version of Jason Momoa as Aquaman that rides a sea horse like a damn Pegasus. That isn’t to say these films should completely jump the shark (I refuse to apologize for that pun), but there’s a reason “Peacemaker” had an Aquaman cameo that led to 16 minutes of “Aquaman has sex with fish” jokes. See, “The Boys” isn’t the only show to joke about super-aquatic beastiality! 

But it’s doubly exciting to hear these comments considering how many obstacles have been thrown at this film since the start of production.

“Making movies is tough enough, making a massive tentpole film is even harder. Throw on top of that a life-threatening pandemic just takes it to a whole different level,” Wan told Entertainment Weekly during a set visit. “But we’ve been shooting for a while now, and it’s been a pretty smooth process.” Those comments were made almost two years ago, and after months of VFX and an extensive editing process, we’re finally going to be able to see the fruits of everyone’s labor. “My goal was always: If we could spin off a Seven Kingdoms universe, that would be my ideal dream,” said Wan.

Whether or not we’ll see a third Aquaman movie will depend greatly on the performance of this sequel, and “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” swims into theaters on December 20, 2023.
