The first teaser poster for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is now revealed thanks to a watchful Twitter user at CinemaCon.
Jason Momoa’s upcoming sequel is the last DC Studios release of the year, and it's now the only project in the company’s slate to have not begun marketing.
While not much information is known about the last DCU movie of the year and the final one before James Gunn’s big reboot, there have been rumors that the movie isn’t a good one.
Industry insiders claim that they’ve heard Aquaman 2 could “potentially [be] one of the worst DCEU movies.”
Now, it looks like CinemaCon comes with a fresh new poster, at the very least, for the upcoming event.
New Poster for Aquaman 2 Revealed
The first teaser poster for Jason Momoa’s upcoming film, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, has been spotted on the floor at CinemaCon ahead of the Las Vegas convention’s official start on Monday, April 24.
Thanks to Twitter user @Alfiemoviehub, fans can take a peek at the new poster—which is about as exciting as a cracked iceberg can be.
The tease may actually resemble some concept art revealed by director James Wan last year, which teased a terrifying monster hidden behind an iceberg.
Aquaman and the Cracked Iceberg
It doesn’t take a genius to realize that the poster isn’t very exciting—and probably wasn’t the best choice given the rumors regarding Aquaman 2's quality.
In fact, the whispers even claimed that Jason Momoa will be taking on a new role in James Gunn’s upcoming DCU reboot, a choice fueled by the alleged abysmal quality of his Aquaman sequel.
As for the cracked iceberg, its connection to the previous concept art is likely no coincidence. It is also probably connected to a wider environmental message the movie is trying to tell.
Previously, Momoa confirmed that the film’s conflict involves something bad about to happen to this Earth, “and it’s not because of aliens.” It seems global warming, and the changing climate conditions will factor heavily into whatever Arthur Curry will be dealing with in his sequel.
Fingers are crossed that Aquaman can get his message out there to the world without pairing it alongside a terrible movie.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom releases on December 20.
