‘Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom’ looks to add Game of Thrones star Pilou Asbæk to its cast
The upcoming Aquaman sequel, Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom has received its official title director James Wan has revealed in an Instagram post late this week. “The tide is rising,” said director James Wan in his caption and ever since the post went live, the tides of hype have indeed started rising. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom which is set to release December 16, 2022, will see the return of Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry/Aquaman, Amber Heard as Mera, and its supporting cast members Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Nicole Kidman, Yahya Abdul-Mateen, and Dolph Lundgren.
While James Wan has revealed the official title of the film, The Wrap has reported that Game of Thrones alum Pilou Asbæk is currently in negotiations to join the cast. Asbæk’s role at the time of this writing remains undisclosed, as well as the film’s plotline. However, with the return of Yahya Abdul-Mateen’s Black Manta and seeing where the first film left his character, we are sure to see Black Manta and Aquaman cross paths again. Whether or not Black Manta is the main antagonist of the film also remains to be seen.
