Aquaman 2 starts filming this July, according to the star Jason Momoa! He confirmed it during an appearance on the Drew Barrymore show, and the news is certain to delight fans! Little is know about the plot of Aquaman 2, currently.
Even though we don’t know much surrounding the Aquaman 2 plot, we know Jason Momoa loves it. How do we know that you might be asking? Well, he told us so himself. He claims to love the story “so much.”
Perhaps one of the reasons he loves it so much, is he actually helped come up with it! That’s right, Jason Momoa helped come up with the plot to Aquaman 2, which must be an awesome feeling for the Aquaman star.
After we ended the first one I went in with my writing partner and we dreamed up the second one and we went in and pitched the idea,” Momoa said (via ScreenRant). “The best thing I can give you is that I love it so much that I participated in the writing of it. And so, we did the first treatment and then James and our original writer David finished it off. And all of our hearts are in it. Instead of just like getting a script and doing that, you are 100% being encouraged by your director and co-writers. So that’s exciting for me and I’m excited to go over there. I leave in July and we start filming.”
The production date is new news, but it’s not exactly mindblowing. It’s been rumored for a long time now that Aquaman 2 would start production this summer. The July date just lines up with what all of us were already expecting.
As if that wasn’t enough evidence that filming began soon, Amber Heard has been dropping hints as well. She’s hinted several times through pictures of her working out that filming would start relatively soon.
“I’m super excited about the amount of fan love and the amount of fan appreciation that Aquaman has acquired and that it has garnered so much excitement for Aquaman and Mera that it means we’ll be coming back,” Heard told Entertainment Weekly. “I’m so excited to film that. Paid rumors and paid campaigns on social media don’t dictate [casting decisions] because they have no basis in reality. Only the fans actually made Aquaman and Aquaman 2 happen. I’m excited to get started next year.”
So, yeah. Aquaman 2 starts filming this July! Are you guys excited? Let us know in the comments.
Aquaman 2 is currently set to open in theaters on December 16, 2022.
