I think it’s safe to say that a number of us here at Revenge of the Fans are quite excited to finally see James Wan’s Aquaman in December. While fans got a sneak peek at Atlantis in Justice League last year, the latest trailer seems to indicate that Wan has taken the ball and ran as far as he could with it in this new film. Which in turn leads to a question of its own: “Where do you go with the sequel?”
In a new interview with TotalFilm, lead actor Jason Momoa reveals that he has ideas of his own for the next film. The actor explained, “I definitely have an opinion. 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.”
Wan also teased his own thoughts on the prospects of a sequel, saying, “There’s definitely stories, even within the world we’ve created, that you can actually see other storylines [spinning off from] as well. There’s the Aquaman story, but then there’s the stories of the seven different kingdoms as well. I think those would be very fun to explore.”
Personally I quite admire Momoa’s approach! Speaking from my own personal experiences making short films and other indie-level projects, it’s ridiculously hard to resist that itch in your mind of wondering what the next story will be like. So I can’t help but grin while reading Momoa’s short tale of pitching the opening of Aquaman 2 to the higher ups at Warner Bros- and reading that they apparently “loved it” is also quite encouraging as well.
