Jason Momoa's Aquaman 2 was a big hit for DC and it was no brainer that they would plan a sequel for it. In fact, the makers had teased us about its second part towards the end of the movie, in its post-credit scene. The studio had earlier announced the return of David Leslie and Johnson-McGoldrick to pen the script for the film's sequel which will be produced by Aquaman director, James Wan and Peter Safran. The movie performed exceptionally well at the box office and minted over $68.7 million in its opening weekend in North America. It’s currently the 20th-highest worldwide grosser of all time.

Aquaman starred Jason Momoa and Amber Heard in the lead role along with Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Nicole Kidman in supporting roles. We wait to hear if the rest of the cast will mark their return in this sequel. Earlier Warner Bros had announced a movie on Trench, which would be a horror spin-off to Aquaman. James Wan and Peter Safran will produce the movie and a director and cast for the same are yet to be announced. Captain Marvel Pre-Sale Tickets Have Already Surpassed DC's Wonder Woman and Aquaman.
