‘Aquaman 2’ has nothing to do with the rest of DC?
Production on “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” has reportedly been a tumultuous one. Speculation includes, among other things: a disastrous post-production that involved three sequences going nuts. The film is stuck between two versions of the DC Cinematic Universe – it is the last studio production commissioned by previous management, before James Gunn and Peter Safran became heads of DC Studios.
The mystery at first was that we didn’t know if “Aquaman 2” would be released before or after “The Flash.” So we had to be preparedJames Wan said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. In the end, the best I can say about this movie is this It is in no way associated with other productions.
But there were rumors, among other things: about the fact that Batman actors Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton, who also appeared in “The Flash”, took part in the filming. So, won’t these gentlemen appear in “Aquaman 2”? I have no comment at this time. You will have to wait for the movie’s release“Van replied.

“Aquaman 2”: Not many nuts?
Wan also answered the question of whether new head of DC Studios, James Gunn, had a hand in his film: James and I have known each other for a long time. We’re both horror guys and I’m open to ideas. But in the end this is my movie.
Wan also claims that the tightening process was similar to any big scene in Hollywood: We have a great cast in this movie and everyone is on a very tight schedule. So we had to divide our schedule into several phases. We shot part of it when one of the actors was free, and part of it when someone else had time. People say, “Oh no! They make so many different nuts!” no. If you put it all together, it won’t be many days at all.
Less Amber Heard – Was that the plan?
During the legal battle between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp, the actress claimed in court that Warner Bros. She did not want to be included in the Aquaman sequel due to the media frenzy surrounding her divorce. Heard suggested that her role in the film had been “reduced” and that her action scenes had been cut.
According to Wan, the second part – like the first part – was not supposed to focus on the relationship between Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Mera (Amber Heard). The director confirms that the priority in Aquaman 2 has always been the relationship between Aquaman and his half-brother Orm (Patrick Wilson).
The first “Aquaman” movie was Arthur and Mera’s journey together. The second movie was always going to be about Arthur and Orm. The first film was a romantic adventure, and the second was a romantic adventureThe manager explained.
Is there a chance for “Aquaman 3”? Wan admitted that there are a number of plot seeds planted in “The Lost Kingdom” that could sprout in the third film, but he is not sure at the moment whether he wants to direct “Aquaman 3.” This movie has taken up so much of my life, so much of my time, that now I can only think of a long vacation.
“Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” is scheduled to hit theaters on December 20.
