The confirmation of reshoots for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom two years after the start of shooting. In the follow-up, Jason Momoa returns to the character of Arthur Curry, and the actor even came up with a story idea for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. The sequel has to match Aquaman’s phenomenal box office performance, which saw Momoa’s character’s debut solo film become the highest-grossing DCEU title with $1.148 billion in revenue. The film Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, which is still being worked on to make it as good as it can be before release, is the center of attention.
Patrick Wilson, who plays Orm/Ocean Master in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that the DC film just completed reshoots, two years after initial filming. Wilson said, “Orm is wonderful. I just wrapped up reshoots for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdoms. He and I last week. The Aquaman sequel reshoots happened recently, according to THR.
Why DC Isn’t Marketing Aquaman 2 Yet
While Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is set to hit theatres in a few months, nothing is known about the film, which has yet to receive a debut trailer or any sort of marketing push. There are a few major reasons why DC is taking its time launching the marketing campaign for Momoa’s second solo picture. Changes in the release date of Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, as well as the film’s many delays, have contributed to the lack of promotion.
After several postponements, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will now be released on December 20. The sequel has a tough challenge, as it must not only match the original Aquaman film’s amazing box office statistics but also turn the tables for DC’s 2023 releases. Both Shazam! Fury of the Gods and The Flash were movie office flops, costing DC hundreds of millions of dollars.
Warner Bros. Discovery’s acknowledged financial difficulties and the failure of DC’s prior box office successes led DC to decide against promoting Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom just yet. Simply put, the studio doesn’t have much money to spend on advertising right now, and given how The Flash bombed despite a strong marketing campaign months before the movie’s release, a different strategy for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’s marketing, hitting the audience hard right before the movie’s release, may prove more successful.
