[USA], Feb 28 (ANI): ‘Aquaman’ sequel will release on December 16, 2022, Warner Bros. has said.

The studio took the first step toward ‘Aquaman 2’ earlier this month by bringing back David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick to write the script.

The film will be produced by original director James Wan and Peter Safran.

‘Aquaman’ over-performed for Warner Bros., coming in above pre-release projections after launching with $68.7 million in its opening weekend in North America. The title gained momentum in subsequent weeks and hit USD 330 million in North America and USD 805 million internationally, led by nearly USD 300 million in China.

It’s currently the 20th-highest worldwide grosser of all time.

Johnson-McGoldrick teamed with Will Beall on the ‘Aquaman’ script, from a story by Beall, Geoff Johns, and Wan.

Johnson-McGoldrick began working on the screenplay three years ago after reading ‘Aquaman’ comic books while on the set of Wan’s ‘The Conjuring 2.’ (ANI)
