Arthur Curry and Orm flaunt the bromance of the year in the ‘Aquaman’ sequel as the duo team to save Atlantis from the dastardly Black Manta, hitting theaters December 20.
Due to changes from three different executive teams, pandemic shutdowns, and actor controversy, the ‘Aquaman’ sequel has undergone numerous rewrites, reshoots, and postponements, with the newest round finishing right as SAG actors went on strike.
The controversial actress appears during a brief battle sequence in the first ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’ trailer, revealed to audiences during Warner Bros.’ CinemaCon 2023 panel.
The highly anticipated DCEU sequel is expected to start production this coming June under the working title ‘Necrus,’ with returning cast members Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, and Amber Heard as Mera.
According to rumors, in an effort to push ‘girl power and feminism,’ the upcoming aquatic DC film may center less on the actual eponymous hero and more on Mera and/or Queen Atlanna.
The ‘Aquaman’ actress has been granted permission to countersue her ex-husband, alleging defamation and spearheading a social media campaign attempt to destroy her career.
Mera may be replaced by an entirely new lead female of color depending upon upcoming litigation results in actress’ legal fight against ex-husband Johnny Depp.
The beleaguered actor will still be paid an eight-figure salary for his portrayal of Gellert Grindelwald in ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’ due to pay-or-play contract, despite being fired from the role.
