Amber Heard appears in first trailer for Aquaman 2

Amber Heard appears in the first trailer for Aquaman 2.

After five long years, DCs beloved Aquaman will be finally gracing our screens once again with the likes of Jason Momoa, Patrick Wilson and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II joining Heard, 37, in reprising their roles.

So, it's no wonder that fans all over are beyond thrilled after Warner Bros. released the first trailer for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom this afternoon (14 September). Check out the trailer here:



The star-studded cast also includes Nicole Kidman, Temuera Morrison, Willem Dafoe and Dolph Lundgren.

The flick's official synopsis reads: "Having failed to defeat Aquaman the first time, Black Manta, still driven by the need to avenge his father’s death, will stop at nothing to take Aquaman down once and for all.

"This time Black Manta is more formidable than ever before, wielding the power of the mythic Black Trident, which unleashes an ancient and malevolent force.

"To defeat him, Aquaman will turn to his imprisoned brother Orm, the former King of Atlantis, to forge an unlikely alliance. "Together, they must set aside their differences in order to protect their kingdom and save Aquaman’s family, and the world, from irreversible destruction."


Many fans have taken to social media to share their excitement with one X, formerly Twitter user, writing: "I speak for everyone when I say we WILL be watching."

"Well I'm impressed it looks glorious and fun," penned a second.

A third added: "I hope this is good! It looks fantastic! I’ll be seeing this day one!"

The film has also gained a lot of buzz given that it is the first major project featuring Heard after last year’s highly publicised defamation trial between herself and ex-husband, Johnny Depp, despite rumours that the actor had been cut from the film following her legal battle.

The trial ended with Heard has paying Depp a $1 million (£795,000) legal settlement with five different charities of his choosing selected as the beneficiaries of the money.

At the time, Heard herself said that she had initially been kicked off the movie and wasn't sure how much of it she was actually in.

"They released me from my contract," Heard told the court.


"And I fought to stay in it, and they kept me in it. I just don't know how much I'm in, actually, of the final cut."

She added: "I was given a script and then given new versions of the script that had taken away scenes that had action in it, that depicted my character and another character, without giving any spoilers away, two characters fighting with one another, and they basically took a bunch out of my role.

"They just removed a bunch out."

While fans are clearly over-the-moon with the release of the trailer, they're going to have to hold tight for a couple more months until they can finally catch their favourite aquatic superhero on the silver screen again.


Just in time for Christmas, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is set to hit theatres on 20 December 2023.
