Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is easily one of the most anticipated films of this year. It will also be the last superhero movie release of 2023. Honestly, I don’t understand why people are talking bad about this movie because looking at the Aquaman 2 trailers, it looks promising. A brand new trailer for Aquaman 2 was recently released and in this article you can read all about the second trailer of Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
Aquaman 2 trailer explained
So the latest Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom trailer gives us some pretty interesting details. At the beginning of this trailer we see that Arthur’s son also has the powers that his father has. He can also talk to fish like Aquaman. However, Black Manta proves to be a fearful villain in this film compared to the last Aquaman film, where his role was quite minimal. We see the Black Manta wielding the Black Trident and is most likely possessed by a much more powerful entity. In this Aquaman 2 trailer, it looks like Tom Curry, Aquaman’s father, will be killed by Black Manta.
We get to see the dying Tom tell Arthur that “He took Junior.” It means that the Black Manta has kidnapped Aquaman’s son. For those of you who don’t know, in all of superhero comic book history, Black Manta is the only supervillain to kill a baby. Any idea who the baby belongs to? Yep, you guessed it right, Aquaman’s. Now I don’t know if he’ll do that in this movie or not, but if he does, I’ll certainly walk out of the theater with a brand new trauma.
Is Amber Heard still in Aquaman 2?
Oh, I almost forgot, in this trailer there are no scenes with Amber Heard’s Mera, which was pretty expected considering the whole Johnny Depp situation. After the courtroom war between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp, both actors’ careers have been affected. Amber Heard was all set to reappear in Aquaman 2, but her screen time in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom has been cut significantly. Amber Heard is still in Aquaman 2 but with just screen time 8 minutes
Finally, all I can say is that Aquaman 2 looks really good, whether you judge it by the VFX, color schemes, or screenplay. Additionally, another major factor is that this movie will officially mark the end of the Aquaman franchise and from the trailer, it looks like Jason Momoa is looking to make a big exit. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will be released in theaters on December 22, 2023.
