Warner Bros has set a December 16, 2022 release date for Aquaman 2. The film is the first titled film to land on December 16, 2022. Disney has already scheduled an untitled live-action movie for the same slot, reported variety.com. The studio took the first step toward Aquaman 2 earlier in February by bringing back David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick to write the script.
Aquaman 2 will be produced by Aquaman director James Wan and Peter Safran. Aquaman garnered $330 million in North America and $805 million internationally, led by nearly $300 million in China. It is currently the 20th highest worldwide grosser of all time.
