Affleck joins a cast that includes Dolph Lundgren as King Nereusand Temuera Morrison as Aquaman’s father, Tom Curry. Game of Thrones‘ Pilou Asbæk also joins the cast at an undisclosed part.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will take the sea hero to the titular Lost Kingdom, a part of the Atlantean Empire lost to history after the Atlanteans fell into ruin and became an underwater people. It is currently unknown how Batman will be included in the upcoming picture, but with the stakes being as high as they are for Arthur, it only makes sense that he would call Batman in for help in some shape or form.

Affleck joins a cast that includes Mamoa as well as Amber Heard return as as Mera Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus, Patrick Wilson returning as Ocean Master, and Temuera Morrison as Aquaman’s father, Tom Curry.
