New Aquaman 2 Scene Details Reveal Natural Disaster Plot
As the world currently focuses on the dramatic DCEU releases of the flash and bat girlwhy not take a step back and look forward to one of the next DC Comics movies that seems to have seen the least fuss: Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom? Sure, there’s the Amber Heard controversy and potential Michael Keaton replacement, but other than that, the upcoming sequel seems to be going smoothly.
But what else do we know about the plot of the film? Well, not too much. A big rumor has it that Mera is about to have a child, while previous reports have revealed that Black Manta will return to give Arthur Curry trouble as he’s likely to be the key protagonist in the movie.
Patrick Wilson’s Orm will also be back, looking a bit rough around the edges.
Now, thanks to an interview with the main star, it looks like fans have a new nugget of information on what to expect in the upcoming blockbuster.
New Aquaman 2 Plot Details Revealed
In an interview with GQ magazine, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom Star Jason Mamoa has spoken about his upcoming film while revealing new plot details.
The actor noted that “[they] try to send a positive message” and how “it’s amazing to be able to raise awareness of what is happening on our planet:”
“These superhero movies are dominating our market, which I have my own opinion on because I love movies, but we’re trying to get a positive message across and go on an adventure…Aquaman is the superhero most laughed at in the world. But it’s amazing to be able to bring awareness to what’s happening on our planet. It’s not a story that’s been told over and over, [it’s a] film about what is happening right now but in a fantasy world.
Mamoa shared that his next release is “much funnier” that the first and teased how “[they] really speeding up what’s going to happen to this Earth, and it’s not because of the aliens.
It was also revealed that there is a scene in the sequel where Arthur Curry gives a big speech to the United Nations, warning them of a natural disaster just around the corner. Mamoa and her family also addressed the real United Nations at their ocean conference last June in Lisbon.
He admitted that “he did [him] to be extremely proud to see [his family] speak for themselves and take this heavy moment in: “
“It made me extremely proud to see [his family] speak for themselves and enjoy this difficult moment… I’m not as young as I used to be. It’s scary having kids and knowing what’s going to happen to our planet if we don’t change now.”
A natural disaster is coming to the DCEU
Given that Aquaman is, well, Aquaman, it makes sense that a big plot point of the film would be based around environmental activism. His primary duty is to his people and the oceans as a whole, so those kinds of themes and messages fit in perfectly.
Whatever this natural disaster in lost kingdom, chances are it was thrown or accelerated by Black Manta. The villain is quite upset with the members of the Justice League and the anger can drive people crazy, like endangering the entire planet in pursuit of one man.
However, perhaps this natural disaster is more related to a bigger threat than Black Manta. Maybe it’s related to something much bigger, like Crisis on Infinite Earths.
Fans will just have to wait to find out while hoping Warner Bros. CEO David Zaslav doesn’t blow anything else.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom hits theaters on March 17, 2023.
