JUSTICE LEAGUE Star Jason Momoa Wrote AQUAMAN 2's Story Treatment; Reveals When Shooting Begins

Zack Snyder's Justice League star Jason Momoa has shared an update on the Aquaman sequel, revealing that he was responsible for writing the movie's story. The actor also talks about when filming begins...

With over $1.1 billion at the worldwide box office, 2018's Aquaman is easily the DC Extended Universe's most successful release. As a result, it's no great surprise that a sequel has been in development since almost the second the first instalment made such a splash, and we now have an update directly from the King of Atlantis himself. 

Appearing on The Drew Barrymore Show to talk up his water company Mananalu Pure Water, Jason Momoa confirmed that he wrote Aquaman 2's story treatment before director James Wan and writer David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick expanded on those ideas and penned the screenplay. 

"After we ended the first one I went in with my writing partner and we dreamed up the second one and we went in and pitched the idea and the best thing I can give you is that I love it so much that I participated in the writing of it," Momoa teased. "And so, we did the first treatment and then James and our original writer David finished it off and all of our hearts are in it."

"Instead of just like getting a script and doing that like you are 100% being encouraged by your director and co-writers so that’s exciting for me and I’m excited to go over there."

As for when work begins on the sequel, the actor added: "I leave in July and we start filming."

Very little is known about the plot of Aquaman 2, though it's expected that Yahya Abdul-Mateen II will take centre stage as the villainous Black Manta. Orm is also likely to factor into the story in some capacity, and we'd be surprised if the movie doesn't add at least one new bad guy.
