New merchandise for the highly anticipated DC Extended Universe sequel, “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” has surfaced, offering fans a glimpse of the revamped costumes for Aquaman, Ocean Master, and Black Manta. The release of these action figures and toys has sparked excitement among fans as they eagerly await the film’s release.

Aquaman and Mera’s Comics-Accurate Costumes

The first wave of Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom action figures, produced by Spin Master, showcases Aquaman (played by Jason Momoa) and Mera (portrayed by Amber Heard) donning their comics-accurate costumes reminiscent of their appearances in the 2018 Aquaman movie. This nostalgic nod to their earlier attire is sure to resonate with fans who appreciated the original designs.

Black Manta’s Upgraded Suit

Intriguingly, the merchandise also offers a glimpse of Black Manta‘s new and upgraded suit, which adheres closely to the comics’ accurate depiction. This enhanced suit hints at the character’s evolving role and heightened threat level in the upcoming sequel.

Aquaman and Ocean Master’s Stealth Suits

Another exciting reveal from the merchandise is the inclusion of action figures featuring Aquaman and his half-brother Orm, also known as Ocean Master, wearing their stealth suits. These suits are distinct from their previous costumes and suggest that the film will explore new dimensions of their characters and adventures. A teaser image of Jason Momoa in Aquaman‘s blue stealth suit had been released in 2021, generating early excitement among fans.

Marketing and Promotion for “The Lost Kingdom”

The emergence of these action figures and toys in stores hints at a potential uptick in marketing and promotional efforts for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. Despite its impending release in just four months, Warner Bros. and DC Studios have maintained a relatively low profile for the film’s promotion. Notably, The Lost Kingdom holds the record for the shortest interval between the release of its first trailer and its theatrical premiere within the DCEU.

James Wan’s Vision for the Sequel

Director James Wan has promised that Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will take the franchise to the next level. He emphasized the strong fan support for Jason Momoa in the role of Aquaman, the captivating underwater visuals, and the expansion of the movie’s world. Wan’s enthusiasm and dedication to delivering a visually stunning and action-packed sequel have heightened anticipation among fans.

Returning Cast

The sequel reunites familiar faces from the first film, including Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Dolph Lundgren, Temuera Morrison, Nicole Kidman, and Randall Park, reprising their respective roles as Mera, Nuidis Vulko, King Nereus, Thomas Curry, Atlanna, and Dr. Stephen Shin. Their return adds depth and continuity to the “Aquaman” universe.

As Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom approaches its December 20th theatrical release, the unveiling of new merchandise offers fans a tantalizing taste of what’s to come. With updated costumes, an intriguing storyline, and the promise of next-level cinematic experiences, the sequel is poised to make waves in the DCEU.
