Aquaman and The Misplaced Kingdom is the lengthy awaited return of Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry and Amber Heard’s Mera to the large display. The movie’s synopsis suggests they gained’t be returning alone, with their son bringing a brand new deal with fatherhood to the movie.

Regardless of the movie releasing in lower than 100 days, particulars about Aquaman and The Misplaced Kingdom have been saved near the chest by DC Studios. Whereas the current teaser confirmed the return of characters like Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry, Amber Heard’s Mera, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s Black Manta, not a lot new was proven. Nevertheless, a brand new synopsis for the movie seemingly confirms the looks of Aquaman’s son, Arthur Curry Jr., within the movie:

“All returning to the roles they originated, Jason Momoa plays Arthur Curry/Aquaman, now balancing his duties as both the King of Atlantis and a new father; Patrick Wilson is Orm, Aquaman’s half-brother and his nemesis, who must now step into a new role as his brother’s reluctant ally; Amber Heard is Mera, Atlantis’ Queen and mother of the heir to the throne…”

“Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is Black Manta, committed more than ever to avenge his father’s death by destroying Aquaman, his family and Atlantis; and Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, a fierce leader and mother with the heart of a warrior. Also reprising their roles are Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus and Randall Park as Dr. Stephen Shin.”

It might come as a shock to many followers that Arthur Curry Jr. will seem in Aquaman and The Misplaced Kingdom. The character was solely a staple of the comics for a decade within the 60s to 70s earlier than being murdered by Black Manta in Dying of a Prince, an incredibly darkish comedian each for the time and for such a constructive character. It’s unclear if Aquaman and Mera’s son will face the identical destiny by the hands of Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, but it surely actually doesn’t look good for the kid.
