Aquaman was one of DC's big blockbusters, breaking the $ 1 billion barrier at the world box office. Shortly after the release of the film, the production of a sequel was confirmed by James Wan and Warner.
Unfortunately, fans of the DC hero will have to wait a long time to see him again at the movies. Aquaman 2 is scheduled to premiere on December 16, 2022.

Screen Rant explained why Aquaman 2 will take so long to hit theaters; check below!
As Aquaman 2 will hit theaters in late 2022, filming is expected to begin in mid-2021. Four years will have passed since the release of the first movie, which is unusual for a superhero movie.
DC has filled the calendar of the coming years with a large number of releases, and there is really no room for the release of Aquaman.

Birds of Prey debut in February 2020 and Wonder Woman 1984 arrives in June. In 2021 premiere The Batman in June, Suicide Squad in August and Black Adam in December.
If Aquaman followed the release logic of most superhero films, he would compete directly with other DC films, which would not be a good deal for the company.
James Wan's commitments also contribute to the delay in the premiere of Aquaman 2. The director has several confirmed projects over the next 2 years.
Wan will script and direct "Malignant," a horror movie starring Jake Abel, the Adam of Supernatural. Filming has begun, and the film is expected to hit theaters on August 14, 2020.
The filmmaker is also part of the production of Summoning Evil 3 and the Deadly Games remake, directed by Chris Rock. Both projects arrive in 2020.
Aquaman 2 already has a date to happen
In 2021 James Wan has confirmed Mortal Kombat's film remake and Netflix's The Magic Order series. That way, he will only be free to dedicate himself to Aquaman in the second half of 2021.
But that might be good for Aquaman 2. With more time, the director can find more creative plots and produce one of the best superhero movies in history.
Aquaman 2 premieres on December 16, 2022.
