‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’: New TV Spot Premieres During MLB Playoffs

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom

In the midst of the gripping MLB Playoffs, fans were treated to a sneak peek of ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’, drawing instant comparisons to Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ in terms of intense power struggles and royal challenges.

In the spot, Aquaman, portrayed by Jason Momoa, is confronted by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s character, David Kane (Black Manta), with a poignant question: If Aquaman can’t save his own family, is he truly fit to rule as king? This TV spot also gives fans a brief look at the return of Patrick Wilson as Orm, suggesting significant tension between the brothers. The looming showdown between Aquaman and Black Manta looks to be both brutal and exhilarating, with scenes hinting at Aquaman finding himself in grave peril.

Following the events of the 2018’s ‘Aquaman’, the sequel dives deeper into the complexities of Arthur Curry’s reign over Atlantis. He faces daunting adversaries, from old foes to emerging threats. As David Kane, also known as Black Manta, wields the menacing Black Trident, Aquaman’s duty extends beyond the throne, compelling him to protect his realm and loved ones from an ancient power. His quest for resolution sees him forging unlikely alliances, especially with his imprisoned brother, Orm.

Regarding the DCU’s roadmap, James Gunn has emphasized that the true canon begins with “Creature Commandos”, serving as an introductory taste, followed by a more detailed exploration with “Superman: Legacy” in 2025. While there may be familiar characters and plots carried over from past DC productions, the authentic continuity and narrative of the DCU will only be firmly established with these upcoming releases.

‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’ is set to grace theaters in the United States on December 20, 2023.
