UPDATE: The first official Trailer for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is here!
Synopsis: Having failed to defeat Aquaman the first time, Black Manta, still driven by the need to avenge his father’s death, will stop at nothing to take Aquaman down once and for all. This time Black Manta is more formidable than ever before, wielding the power of the mythic Black Trident, which unleashes an ancient and malevolent force. To defeat him, Aquaman will turn to his imprisoned brother Orm, the former King of Atlantis, to forge an unlikely alliance. Together, they must set aside their differences in order to protect their kingdom and save Aquaman’s family, and the world, from irreversible destruction.
Despite earlier reports, it looks like we won’t be seeing Ben Affleck’s return as Batman after all. Affleck’s cameo has apparently been cut so the film can be more of a standalone project than something that connects with the DCEU pre-James Gunn.
