Warner Bros. Pictures has announced December 16, 2022, as the release date for ‘Aquaman’ sequel, which has been dubbed ‘Aquaman 2.’

The first step toward producing ‘Aquaman 2’ kicked off in the early days of February 2019, according to a report by Variety.

The film narrates the story of an heir, Arthur Curry to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, who must step forward to lead his people against his half-brother, Orm, who seeks to unite the seven underwater kingdoms against the surface world.

The 2018 film is based on the DC Comics character of the same name and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.

The studio took the first step toward production of the “Aquaman 2’’earlier this month by bringing back David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick to write the script and it is considered to be the first titled film to land on Dec. 16, 2022.

“Aquaman 2” will be produced by “Aquaman” director James Wan and Peter Safran. “Aquaman” has over-performed for Warner Bros., coming in above pre-release projections after launching with $68.7 million in its opening weekend in North America.
