Aquaman 2 Already Planned, Before First One Is Even Out


Amber Heard, who plays the gorgeous and risky Mera in Aquaman, recently sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to discuss the new DC film.

It is only when Mera (Amber Heard) arrives and informs him that the upcoming battle may well decide the fate of the entire planet that he decides to do something about it.

There are lots of projects in development, but right now the studio needs solid franchises other than Wonder Woman within the DCEU, and Aquaman could prove to be the next solo franchise that sets them on that path, particularly when you consider that those box office projections come on a weekend that also includes Mary Poppins Returns and Bumblebee. The movie is based on characters from DC's Aquaman created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger.

As Burger King bragged in a press release, they're "turning more than 14,000 McDonald's into Burger King restaurants". You have to be within 600 feet of a McDonald's to be eligible, according to the video .

Tracking estimates show that Aquaman is expected to make $65 million for its USA opening later this month, beating Mary Poppins Returns and the Transformers spinoff Bumblebee, which open at the same time. Pictures Group chairman Toby Emmerich enough confidence to begin talks on a sequel (though no writer has been commissioned yet). That number gave Warner Bros.

If a sequel does go through though, it looks like co-star Amber Heard - who sported a low seven-figure salary in the first film - will get a hefty pay increase. Whether Wan will direct again is also a big unknown, but what is known, per THR, is that Heard will see her payday "balloon" considering the sheer amount of work she put into the first movie.
