Though Aquaman doesn’t open until December, star Jason Momoa has an idea for a sequel — which he already pitched to Warner Bros. In the November issue of Total Film magazine, 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.”
In the same issue of TF, director James Wan hinted that Momoa isn’t the only one with thoughts about a second movie:
“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.”
The success of Aquaman’s first solo big screen outing — opening December 21 — will go a long way toward determining if and when those sequel ideas come to be.
