AQUAMAN AND THE LOST KINGDOM And BLACK ADAM Synopses Tease Unexpected Developments In Both DC Movies

Two new synopses for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom and Black Adam have been released, both of which tease some unexpected and exciting developments in these corners of the expanding DC Extended Universe.

2021 was a quiet year for the DC Extended Universe, with only The Suicide Squad dropping in theaters (and on HBO Max). The next 12 months look set to be considerably more exciting, though, with Peacemaker, The Batman, Black Adam, The Flash, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, and Batgirl all on the way. 

Now, we have new synopses for two of those movies, both of which drop some fresh intel. In Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, it's said that "When an ancient power is unleashed, Aquaman must forge an uneasy alliance with an unlikely ally to protect Atlantis, and the world, from irreversible devastation."

An "unlikely ally"? There are two strong possibilities for who that could be: Black Manta or Ocean Master. We're betting on the latter seeing as behind-the-scenes photos have shown Orm freed from his prison (Black Manta is also expected to be the Aquaman sequel's lead villain following his 2018 introduction).

As for Black Adam, "Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the Egyptian gods - and imprisoned just as quickly - Black Adam (Johnson) is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world." Clearly, the anti-hero has been locked up for a long time, so it's no wonder he's seemingly looking for payback!

With 2022 shaping up to the most exciting year to date for the DCEU, it's going to be very interesting to see whether Warner Bros. can pull off a slate that's even more jam-packed than Marvel Studios' (in theaters, at least). Hopefully, all these movies are great, but only time will tell on that front. 

Black Adam is set to be released on July 29, 2022. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will follow on December 16, later the same year.
