Another big star that has confirmed they will be returning for Aquaman 2 back in November 2020 was Amber Heard, who played Mera in the first Aquaman, according to Entertainment Weekly. While there has been some controversy about her role in the upcoming sequel, she’s still on board to continue portraying Mera.
In all honesty, I’m super happy that Aquaman was the success that it became, grossing over $1 billion worldwide, according to BoxOfficeMojo. For a superhero that never had a major motion picture before, Aquaman proved that it was here and ready to stay around for a time. Even James Wan, the director of Aquaman and Aquaman 2 said back in 2019 that he believed it would be an under-the-radar hit. Not the megahit that it ended up becoming.
Recently, Momoa joked around and said that he’s eating the perfect Aquaman diet on one of his Instagram stories, according to Comicbook.com. If the rumors are true and they do intend to start filming in June 2021, that Aquaman diet is probably coming in handy. Get ready for 2022, as Aquaman 2 is undoubtedly one of Jason Momoa’s most anticipated upcoming movies.
