AQUAMAN 2 Sets Release Date - Warner Bros.' Superhero Sequel Swims Into Theaters In 2022

After Aquaman grossed over $1 billion worldwide we knew it was only a matter of time before Warner Bros. announced plans for a sequel, and now the studio has set an official release date. Check it out...

We recently brought you the news that a sequel to James Wan's Aquaman movie was officially in development with co-writer David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick on board to pen the script, and now Warner Bros. has set a release date for The King of Atlantis' next solo outing: December 16, 2022.

Still no word on whether Wan will be returning to the director's chair, but he is expected to produce alongside Peter Safran.

Aquaman surprised pretty much everyone by not only grossing $1.1 billion worldwide, but becoming the studio's second most profitable title of all-time. More recently, it was revealed that the underwater adventure passed the unadjusted total of Shane Black's Iron Man 3 to become the highest grossing solo superhero movie of all time internationally.

The film's massive success has led to more than just a direct sequel, as WB is also planning a spin-off focusing in the ferocious Trench - although that's not expected to star Jason Momoa, Amber Heard or any of the other members of the original's principal cast.

What do you guys make of this news? Were you expecting to see Aquaman 2 sooner than 2022? Drop us a comment down below.
