Return of the king!
King Nereus actor Dolph Lundgren revealed the upcoming Aquaman sequel will film this summer in London.
Despite the massive success of the first Aquaman film, as it became the highest-grossing DC movie of all-time, the sequel wasn’t fast-tracked since James Wan went onto direct Malignant. Aquaman 2 will be Wan’s next project, and based on recent comments made by King Nereus actor Dolph Lundgren, filming could begin in a few months.
We haven’t had a significant update on Aquaman 2 since James Wan teased the sequel will be more serious than the first film at DC FanDome. Over the weekend, Dolph Lundgren shared during a virtual Wizard World event that he might return as King Nereus this summer:
“I may be doing Aquaman 2 this summer, shooting in London. And that’s coming out the following year in the theaters, they hope.”
