Jason Momoa has told Aquaman fans 'tides are changing' as he gave a sneak peek behind the scenes on the upcoming sequel, revealing him and Amber Heard on set.
Momoa took part in the DC FanDome virtual event this weekend, where he shared the previously unseen footage from Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom telling fans: "Aloha DC FanDome I apologise for the four year wait.
"But I'm very proud of the sequel because it's tackling a lot of issues environmentally, stakes are higher and I'm just excited because I had a big part of it with my boy James [Wan, Aquaman director]."
He added: "I'm super excited to be back making the sequel.
"I have so much invested into it. I love this character. I love what it represents. There's nothing I've ever been a part of that's like this."
The footage kicked off with him driving on set for the first day of production back in July; before showing other cast members including Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (who plays David Kane/Black Manta) and Heard reprising her role as Mera.
Amber played Mera in the first movie, but questions were raised on whether she would return amid her legal battles with ex-husband Johnny Depp.
Back in November last year, Depp fans even set up an online petition calling on Heard to be removed from Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom.
And it seems some fans are not happy she's back, venting on social media, one person wrote: "Aquaman was looking so fire then BOOM Amber Heard was on screen."
While another added: "I'm not paying to see Amber Heard."
However, the rumours of her not coming back for the sequel are now well and truly put to bed, as she was pictured on set in Mera's dark green unitard.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly last year, she said: "I'm super excited about the amount of fan love and the amount of fan appreciation that Aquaman has acquired and that it has garnered so much excitement for Aquaman and Mera that it means we'll be coming back. I'm so excited to film that."
The sequel is set to land in cinemas in December next year, and director Wan has promised fans a 'mature' yet 'fun' movie.
He said: "People are going to be in for a treat when Aquaman 2 comes out.
"They're going to get a movie that's more mature, but yet still retains its fun to give audiences something different, something new they haven't seen before."
