Until this moment, Aquaman has not aired in theaters. But with a positive response in the initial screening and predictions of a solid box office debut, this film directed by James Wan had a big chance of being successful. Knowing that, Toby Emmerich as the leader of Warner Bros. now it has begun to set off to overtake Aquaman’s sequel.
Indeed the making of Aquaman 2 is only a discourse and there has not been any decision about the project. Even the script has not been done yet, as no one has occupied the position of script writer and director. However, according to a report from THR, Emmerich felt the discussion related to the Aquaman sequel was not too early, especially after the first film was estimated to have earned domestic income above $ 65 million in the first week. What’s more, Aquaman 2’s discourse also appeared thanks to the critics’ warm welcome to the first film at the initial screening.
Well, hopefully if Aquaman later proves to be financially and critically successful, WB will bring Wan back to direct the acting duo of the main actors Jason Momoa (Aquaman) and Amber Heard (Mera). The reason, one of the things that was often appreciated by critics from Aquaman was Wan’s steady direction. Uniquely, in the same news from THR, Wan acknowledged that he and Heard often joked that Aquaman’s first film should be titled The Adventures of Mera With Her Sidekick Aquaman, because the heroine which he said almost always appeared in each of these scenes had more super power than the king of Atlantis.
Setting after the Justice League, this film tells Arthur Curry a.k.a. Aquaman who realized he was the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis and he had to lead his people to protect the world from threats. Previously, Wan signaled Aquaman would resemble the Raiders of the Lost Ark, where the adventures of Aquaman and his partner, Mera, would be an exciting spectacle.
