Jason Momoa recently revealed on Instagram the first look at his new costume in director James Wan’s Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
The first photo shows Momoa in his green and orange costume that is like in Aquaman’s original comic book look. The second photo shows Momoa in a darker costume. The actor writes, “Second round. New suit. More action. #aquaman Aloha.”
When talking about the sequel Wan shared, “Aquaman 2 is very heavily inspired by Planet of the Vampires. You can take the boy out of horror, but you can never take the horror out of the boy.”
Wan went on to talk about the change in the tone of the film saying that it’s “partially because they were not familiar with the comic book, which deals in this very lurid, strange world. People were taken aback that I didn’t throw all that stuff away and make a dark, heavy film. But I didn’t feel that would have been right for it. So with the second film, I feel it will be easier for people to accept where we go because I’ve already laid the foundation.”
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will hit theaters on December 16, 2022.
