Aquaman will be releasing in December, but star Jason Momoa already has some ideas for a sequel.
DC fans will get more insight about Aquaman, Orm, Mera, Black Manta and more in Aquaman’s solo adventure. While there’s still some time left for the sequel, Momoa has already pitched some ideas for a sequel to Warner Bros.
“I definitely have an opinion,” Momoa told Syfy Wire. “Even when we were shooting Aquaman, I have the opening of Aquaman 2 ready. I went in and pitched it to [producer Peter] Safran, and I pitched it to [Warner Bros. chairman] Toby Emmerich. They loved it. It’s awesome…But yeah, I have plans for Aquaman 2.”
Momoa didn’t go into details as what the opening will consist of, but director James Wan has delivered an opening canvas to draw from.
“There’s definitely stories, even within the world we’ve created, that you can actually see other storylines [spinning off from] as well,” Wan said. “There’s the Aquaman story, but then there are the stories of the seven different kingdoms as well. I think those would be very fun to explore.”
It seems like there’s a lot of material out there for a sequel including Yahya Abdul-Mayen II’s Black Manta, who could be in the sequel too.
“Well, yeah, I mean, this character, he’s all over the canon.” Abdul-Mateen II said to reporters. “He’s in Suicide Squad, we see him in the cartoons, we see him in Young Justice. Yeah, I mean, he’s all over the place, in a way that he can get to his means to an end. Right, if you see Aquaman in Justice League, then you know, it’ll make sense for Black Manta to say, ‘Hey! What you doing?’ Pop his head in, wherever he is, he can justify making it his business. I’m looking forward to living long within the DC world, and create a little bit of chaos.”
Aquaman hits the theatres on December 21.
