Jason Momoa teased an even bigger scope for the upcoming Aquaman sequel.
Warner Bros. and DC released their stylish, exciting take on Arthur Curry last December and it quickly became a monster hit. The film went on to gross more than $1 billion at the global box office, impressing fans with its massive set pieces and enormous vision. Aquaman is a big movie, there’s no doubt about that, but it sounds like the sequel will be even bigger.
There was never any doubt that Warners would order an Aquaman sequel, considering its unprecedented success and Momoa’s passion for the role. Even though Aquaman 2 isn’t set to arrive until 2022, Momoa knows where the franchise is headed and has admitted that there’s so much more in store.
Now, Momoa has offered fans a hint of what they can expect from the Aquaman sequel. During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Jason Momoa teased an even more epic scale for his return as Aquaman:
“There’s a lot more in store on so many more levels. There’s going to be a lot. It’s way bigger!”
Jason Momoa added that he went to Warner Bros. and proposed his own idea for the Aquaman sequel:
“I’m really stoked at the fan base and what we did with the movie and just went into Warner Bros in D.C. and said, ‘You know, I have some ideas.’ And, they love them and James [Wan, director] and everyone is like, ‘We’re all taking it in. We’re excited to do another one.’”
While Momoa became known to plenty of fans as Khal Drogo, a role he played during the first season of Game of Thrones. However, it wasn’t until he was cast as Aquaman that Momoa really took over the spotlight, which he admits changed his life. His stepdaughter, Zoe Kravitz, is about to go through a similar experience, as she’s been tapped to play Catwoman in DC’s upcoming film, The Batman, opposite Robert Pattinson.
Aquaman 2 arrives in theaters on December 16, 2022.
