Jason Momoa Arrives in London for Aquaman 2 Filming | Screen Rant

Jason Momoa officially arrives in London to begin filming on Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. Momoa has only appeared in a handful of DCEU outings so far, but his performance as Arthur Curry has quickly become a fan favorite. Camoes aside, the former Game of Thrones star first appeared in 2017's Justice League for his official introduction as the franchise's Aquaman. The 2018 solo film of the same name opened up his world considerably and saw him grapple with his dual human and Atlantean heritage. Though the first movie was a success, Aquaman 2 has taken some time to get started.

Currently, little is known about Aquaman 2 save for its full title and some of its cast members. Director James Wan has returned for this installment, which kicked off filming in late June. In addition to Momoa, The Lost Kingdom will feature original stars Amber Heard, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Patrick Wilson. Newcomer Pilou Asbaek joined the cast in April, signing on for an unnamed role. When confirming production had begun, Wan shared a picture of an icy cave, thus setting the stage for some fascinating new locations.

On Sunday, Momoa shared a video on social media confirming he has officially landed in London ahead of starting work on Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. In the short clip, the actor thanked fans for their support both with the film and his new Harley Davidson line, and he expressed his excitement about starting work on Aquaman 2. "I'm gonna start Aquaman 2 tomorrow," Momoa said, also revealing he'll be dying his hair blonde for the movie. "[I'm excited] to see James and the whole cast," he added. You can see his full post down below.

Earlier this month, Momoa admitted he hadn't begun training for Aquaman 2, and now it's a bit clearer as to why that is: He has a later start than everyone else. Heard touched down in London in June just ahead of production kicking off, and while it isn't quite as clear when the rest of the cast arrived, it stands to reason that Momoa is among the last to join. As he alluded to in his video, he was working on his Apple TV+ series SeeAquaman 2 likely focused on scenes without Arthur for the first few weeks.

Though Momoa played Aquaman for this year's Zack Snyder's Justice League, it's been nearly three years since fans last saw a completely new DCEU performance from him. By the time Aquaman 2 arrives, it will have been four. Therefore, it's exciting to know he's starting work on the movie after all this time. Momoa is an excellent Aquaman, and it'll be thrilling to see where the sequel takes him next. Since work has really only just begun on Aquaman 2, it might be a while before new details are revealed. Stay tuned for further updates.
