With Aquaman, DC really hit the jackpot as the movie became one of the franchise’s biggest commercial successes. And with that in mind, a sequel was inevitable. Now, we have the first look of Aquaman 2, finally here. And interestingly, it’s the new Black Manta costume that has really caught our attention.

For years, Aquaman was pretty much the butt of jokes. Almost every video game or show had a joke referring to the fact that he could “talk to fish”. But, with Jason Momoa and his version of Arthur Curry, DC pretty much restored a lot of respect to Aquaman. The original was rightfully a huge financial success. And with Jason Momoa still as the lead, Aquaman 2 is set to be just as big a success.

Now, Warner Bros. has given us the first teaser clip of Aquaman 2. In it, we saw Jason Momoa truly embracing and enjoying playing Aquaman on the set. But, we also got to see Yahya Abdul Mateen II reprise the role of David Kane/Black Manta. In the sequel, Black Manta is going to have quite a more significant role considering the time that his character got in the original film. This time, however, his incredible suit and helmet got a bit of an upgrade, as you can see in the image below.

What else did the Aquaman 2 teaser reveal?

We got to see a lot more than just the new look of Black Manta. In the Aquaman 2 teaser, we see Momoa pull up at the studios for his first day of production. He tells the camera how proud he is of the sequel and is looking forward to reuniting with the crew. He said:

It’s tackling a lot of issues, environmentally, the stakes are higher. And I’m just excited because I had a big part with my boy James. Times are changing!

For Aquaman 2, Momoa will be reuniting with director James Wan of the Conjuring series. His visuals in the original film were truly breathtaking and captivated the entire audience. And Aquaman 2 is promising to be a similar experience, as Momoa hinted:

I have so much invested into it. I love this character, I love what it represents. There’s nothing that I’ve ever been a part of that’s like this.

Luckily, Wan was willing to give fans a bit more insight on Aquaman 2, saying:

We see that Black Manta is still seeking his vengeance to try to kill Aquaman. That’s gonna be something that’s exciting for the audience, something for them to be swept up into the world of Aquaman again. It’s a globe-trotting story – we visit so many different worlds. This movie isn’t afraid to embrace its fantasy and go on this magical journey. I think it’s gonna be really awesome.

It sounds like an incredible experience. But, we’ll have to wait a while as the Aquaman 2 release date is currently set for December 16, 2022. Until then, do enjoy the teaser below.
