Following the recent release of the sequel's first trailer, DC has shared two new variant covers for the upcoming Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom prequel comic series.
The first gives us a new live-action look at Jason Momoa as the King of Atlantis, Arthur Curry, in his blue and purple deep-sea armour, while the second features artist Belén Ortega's depiction of Aquaman and his reformed brother Orm, as the villainous Black Manta looms in the background.
The Lost Kingdom will be the final movie of the current DCEU era before James Gunn and Peter Safran relaunch the franchise with the DCU. We have heard conflicting reports about Momoa staying on as the aquatic hero, and there's a lot of speculation that the actor will actually take on a new role (most likely Lobo) down the line.
Check out the covers at the link below.
"Having failed to defeat Aquaman the first time, Black Manta, still driven by the need to avenge his father’s death, will stop at nothing to take Aquaman down once and for all. This time Black Manta is more formidable than ever before, wielding the power of the mythic Black Trident, which unleashes an ancient and malevolent force. To defeat him, Aquaman will turn to his imprisoned brother Orm, the former King of Atlantis, to forge an unlikely alliance. Together, they must set aside their differences in order to protect their kingdom and save Aquaman’s family, and the world, from irreversible destruction.
All returning to the roles they originated, Jason Momoa plays Arthur Curry/Aquaman, no, after w balancing his duties as both the King of Atlantis and a new father; Patrick Wilson is Orm, Aquaman’s half-brother and his nemesis, who must now step into a new role as his brother’s reluctant ally; Amber Heard is Mera, Atlantis’ Queen and mother of the heir to the throne; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is Black Manta, committed more than ever to avenge his father’s death by destroying Aquaman, his family and Atlantis; and Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, a fierce leader and mother with the heart of a warrior. Also reprising their roles are Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus and Randall Park as Dr. Stephen Shin."
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is set to swim into theaters on December 20.
