The final film in the DCEU, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, had retakes before to its December premiere.

With the aid of co-CEOs of DC Studios James Gunn and Peter Safran, Aquaman 2 is expected to wrap up this current period of the DC storyline and put a conclusion to the Zack Snyder period of the super-powered franchise.

The film starring Jason Momoa hasn’t had the best run thus far, what with actor scandals, a global epidemic, and now a full-fledged franchise relaunch following in its wake.

All of this comes in addition to the various changes the movie has already seen, such the studio supposedly are about to change the elements mid-production.

What is Happening with Aquaman 2?

Retakes Are Done For The DCEU's Final Film Amid DC's Reboot

Patrick Wilson, who plays Aquaman in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, claims that the last DCEU film recently underwent a number of reshoots in preparation for its release later this year.

While promoting his recently released film, Insidious: The Red Door, the Ocean Master/Orm actor revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that he recently took part in reshoots for the picture and quipped, “Orm is fantastic. I spent last week with him.

This comes after Jason Momoa, who plays Aquaman, was spotted making a post on his personal Instagram in early June, which suggested that he was preparing for the same reshoots.

Regardless of how “awesome” Patrick Wilson may claim his character and Aquaman 2 as a whole are, it is quite alarming to see the movie undergoing yet further modifications at this late stage.

One must keep in mind that this movie had its final day of production in December 2021, or exactly two years before it will be released.

However, rumors have shown that the film is still in a continual state of modification, with Warner Bros. allegedly making significant adjustments to the film during post-production.

Retakes are a typical occurrence in the industry of contemporary filmmaking, but the circumstances in Aquaman 2 feel a bit different.

The Lost Kingdom has appeared in so many different versions over the years that one worries it would end up in theaters looking like a Frankenstein’s monster after being cut, trimmed, and reshaped into submission.
