Fans won’t have to wait much longer for more details, as a full-length trailer is set to drop in just four days.

The teaser provides glimpses of Black Manta, portrayed by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, as he seeks revenge for his father’s demise. Amidst scenes of Arthur’s childhood home engulfed in flames, Black Manta swears to “kill Aquaman and obliterate everything he treasures.”

The trailer also highlights Wilson’s return as Orm, the former king of Atlantis, and Nicole Kidman’s role as Arthur’s mother, Queen Atlanna.

The original “Aquaman” film exceeded the $1 billion mark at the box office, becoming the highest-grossing DC Extended Universe movie to date. Fans can mark their calendars for the sequel’s premiere on December 20, five years after the original hit theaters in 2018.

Amber Heard reprises her role as Mera, the princess of Xebel and Arthur’s love interest, in “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.” However, her absence from the teaser trailer is notable.

DC Films President Walter Hamada revealed during the Depp/Heard trial that her role in the sequel was reduced due to concerns about her chemistry with co-star Momoa. Meanwhile, Heard’s agent, Jessica Kovacevic of WME, suggested that negative press surrounding Heard’s allegations against Johnny Depp may have impacted her career trajectory.

The plot of the eagerly awaited sequel promises an epic showdown: Black Manta, still motivated by the desire to revenge the death of his father, will do whatever it takes to finally beat Aquaman after failing to do it the first time. With the mythical Black Trident’s strength, which releases an antiquated and evil energy, Black Manta is more formidable than ever this time.

Aquaman will go to his imprisoned brother Orm, the previous ruler of Atlantis, to create an odd alliance in order to fight him. In order to safeguard their kingdom and prevent Aquaman’s family and the Earth from undergoing irreparable ruin, they must put aside their differences and work together.

In a recent update, director James Wan announced the completion of filming, expressing his gratitude to the dedicated crew who brought the project to life.

On December 20, “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” will debut in theatres and cause a stir.
