Warner Bros. is officially into its biggest year of DC Extended Universe content, a 365-day stretch that began with January's Peacemaker and will end with Jason Momoa's Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. While anticipation for this sequel isn't too high yet, that momentum should shift as the sequel's debut gets closer. Following up on the DCEU's first movie to break $1 billion at the global box office, Lost Kingdom won't be short on new and exciting plot lines for Arthur Curry and company.
Filming for Aquaman 2 only finished a couple of months ago, but the post-production crew will be hard at work all year to make sure Momoa's second solo outing brings the same impact as 2018's Aquaman. Although the sequel features returning players like Patrick Wilson's Oceanmaster alongside DCEU newcomers such as Game of Thrones' Pilou Asbaek, Momoa will remain the main attraction as Arthur Curry returns to glory.
This time around, Momoa will see the biggest change to his Aquaman look yet thanks to a blonde haircut that came to light last summer. Now, that new hairdo is in the spotlight yet again thanks to an international fan-made poster that's surfaced online.
New Aquaman Poster Highlights Blonde Jason Momoa
The Chinese website Weibo released a new poster for Warner Bros' Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
In the middle of waves and a group of Koi fish, Jason Momoa's Arthur Curry is shown floating in the air (or water) in his new stealth suit. As teased through past reports and images, Momoa's hair, beard, and even eyebrows are also noticeably blonde.
Momoa's Aquaman Using Inspiration from DC Comics
Although this fully blonde hairdo is something that hasn't been seen in Momoa's three DC Extended Universe appearances and his screen time in Zack Snyder's Justice League, it's nothing new for DC's resident underwater hero.
In both DC Comics and past animated shows featuring Aquaman, the half-Atlantean usually sports golden locks and a matching beard, which was changed for the hero's first live-action story. Now, Warner Bros. is looking to add some of that famed comic lore into Momoa's biggest DCEU movie to date, making him look closer to his comic counterpart than ever before.
After three canon movies with Momoa's natural brown hair, there are currently no known reason as to why he will go blonde in the 2022 sequel. It could tie into his newfound power as the rightful King of Atlantis, or it could just be that Arthur is looking to switch things up.
Whatever the reasoning, fans will have the opportunity to the most comic-accurate Aquaman yet in his next blockbuster movie.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will premiere in theaters on December 16, 2022.
