The Stakes Are A Lot Higher For Aquaman 2
In an interview with Fandango, Momoa said the sequel is expected to gross more than the first Aquaman movie which made $1.14 billion at the box office.
“We all learned something on the first one. It’s exciting because I haven’t made too many sequels. I just know that it’s, even on the page, it’s absolutely wonderful. There is so much going on. I think the stakes are a lot higher,” Momoa said.
“It’s just gone on to a whole other level, so I’m excited for everyone because it’s just a lot more heart. There’s a lot more at risk.”
Currently, Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom is in production, but new casting updates are still being made.
Another Pose star that is making news is Michaele Jaé Rodriguez, who plays the role of Blanca.
The Emmy nominee has recently dropped her debut single ‘Something to Say’ and is expected to act alongside comedy icon Maya Rudolph in a new Apple TV+ comedy series.
