By Creative Media TimesA couple of months after The King of Atlantis smashed the boxoffice, it was only a matter of time for the studio to announce a sequel.
And on Wednesday, Warner Bros. confirmed the release date for the sequel Aquaman is set to Dec. 16, 2022, Hollywood Reporter announced.
Though no director is currently attached to helm the sequel, the report mentions that the original film’s director James Wan (The Conjuring, Furious 7) is “making a deal to return as producer.”
The Jason Momoa-starrer had a surprising run at the boxoffice the past few months, eventually becoming the highest grossing DC film at the global boxoffice, grossing nearly $1.140 billion worldwide, though Wonder Woman is still currently DCEU top grossing film domestically.
The film’s screenplay was written by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick and Will Beall and co-starred Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Temuera Morrison, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Nicole Kidman.
DC has now dated eight films, including two this year such as next month’s “Shazam,” and a Joker origin film on October 4.
