Earlier this week, DCEU fans got their very first glimpse at the upcoming sequel Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom thanks to the 30-second teaser that they released which also revealed that the full trailer will finally arrive days after.
Considering that we're now just three months away from its release in theaters this holiday season, there were concerns beforehand regarding the sequel's lack of promotional materials and it is unusual for Warner Bros. to release the first trailer of a DC movie this late.
It doesn't help that the sequel is reportedly experiencing a lot of behind-the-scenes issues in its post-production. There were also rumors that the release could be delayed due to the current actors' strike which has since been disputed.
After days of anticipation since the announcement, we finally have our first full trailer for the highly-anticipated DCEU sequel and it looks like fans should prepare for more doze of undersea adventures.
The Full Trailer for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom Has Arrived
Warner Bros. has released the full trailer for the upcoming (and final) DCEU film Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom which gave us an extended first look at Jason Momoa's next heroic adventure as Arthur Curry following the events of the first movie.
Based on this almost three-minute-long preview, it looks like they will explore more kingdoms that exist in the CGI-filled underwater world of the DCEU as shown by the new places and creatures that they teased.
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II's Black Manta also took a spotlight in the trailer as they highlighted his thirst for revenge against Arthur and it seems that he will be a bigger threat in the underworld world, more so than in the first film.
Arthur is also seen teaming up with his half-brother and the first film's antagonist Orm (with Patrick Wilson returning to reprise the role) and they will work together to stop Black Manta's threat.
They also revealed that Arthur now has a son as they showed his new life as a father. His wife, Mera, is also briefly seen in the trailer confirming that Amber Heard still has a part in the sequel.
Overall, it looks like fans of the first film might enjoy this sequel which also serves as a swan song in the DCEU since it will be the final entry in the current iteration before the official DCU reboot under James Gunn and Peter Safran.
There are also a lot of stakes in terms of its box office since the first film was a billion-dollar grosser and the recent entries in the franchise have disappointing results. Warner Bros. is hoping that this sequel will turn things around as the DCEU is on its final leg.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is set to arrive in theaters this December 20.
