The old DC universe is on its final legs, and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is considered to be the last we will see of anyone from the Snyderverse continuity. The film is set to release this December, and we have a new trailer marking the start of sale for tickets.
Anyone who knows anything about the Aquaman lore will probably read this as the Empire Strikes Back movie for Arthur going up against Manta, but the trailer is somehow really leaning in on the fun aspect of the film, what with Arthur still full of quips and the undersea world being more colorful than anything we saw in the live-action The Little Mermaid.
With “Junior” expected to be the son of Arthur and Mera (Amber Heard), it’s also pretty awkward that we don’t get to see her in the trailer at all; she barely shows up in the other promotional material as well.
Admittedly, I would like to be excited for the film, but seeing that James Gunn has already announced that he’s rebooting everything—plus all the behind-the-scenes drama that was said to be happening with Heard and the rest of the crew—it’s kind of hard to remain optimistic for The Lost Kingdom.
I guess if they are going out, I would just love them to go with a bang. Catch Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom when it releases in theaters on Dec. 22.
