Jason Momoa sits on the Throne of Atlantis in the first released footage from Aquaman 2

Jason Momoa sparked excitement among DCEU fans as he was seen sitting upon the Throne of Atlantis in the first released footage from Aquaman 2: The Lost Kingdom.

On Friday, Warner Bros. Pictures debuted a minute-long teaser for its upcoming films that included a brief look at the highly-anticipated sequel to 2018 blockbuster Aquaman.

‘What could be greater than a king?’ Jason, 42, was heard asking in a voiceover as he was seen seated on the massive metallic-spiked throne.

In the scene, the actor, who plays Arthur Curry/Aquaman, gave the comic book character’s classic orange and green suit that he wore in the first movie.

However, in the previous scene, Jason modeled Aquaman’s new dark blue stealth suit as he explored what appeared to be ancient ruins of the Altantean Empire.

Jason and director James Wan first revealed Aquaman’s new look in September 2021. The actor posted a slideshow of photos from the upcoming film, including one in which he was seen in the new suit.

‘Second round. New follows. More action. Aloha,’ Jason wrote in the caption of his Instagram post.

James also shared photos from Aquaman 2 on his Instagram page, writing, ‘Here’s @prideofgypsies in the classic #Aquaman suit AND a sneak peek at his other outfit — the stealth suit.’

He continued, ‘Atlantean tech based on cephalopod’s camouflage ability. David Leslie Johnson and I were inspired by the 80’s ‘blue suit.’

In December, Warner Bros. released the official plot synopsis for the movie, which read: ‘When an ancient power is unleashed, Aquaman must forge an uneasy alliance with an unlikely ally to protect Atlantis, and the world, from irreversible devastation.’

James, the co-creator of the Saw and Insidious franchises, has hinted that the sequel will have a darker and more serious tone than its predecessor.

In an interview with Total Film last August, the director cited the 1965 Italian horror sci-fi film Planet of the Vampires as a major source of inspiration for Aquaman 2.

‘Aquaman 2 is very heavily inspired by Planet of the Vampires,’ he said.

James added, ‘You can take the boy out of horror but you can never take the horror out of the boy.’

Jason developed the pitch for Aquaman 2 after filming the first film and was involved in writing the screenplay for the sequel.

During an appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show, he said, ‘After we ended the first one I went in with my writing partner and we dreamed up the second one and we went in and pitched the idea.’

He added, ‘The best thing I can give you is that I love it so much that I participated in the writing of it. And so, we did the first treatment and then James and our original writer David finished it off.

‘And all of our hearts are in it. Instead of just like getting a script and doing that, you are 100% being encouraged by your director and co-writers. So that’s exciting for me and I’m excited to go over there. I leave in July and we start filming.’

Filming took place in London and Jason’s native Hawaii with production wrapping in December.
