In the latest Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom teaser, Black Manta focuses on Arthur Curry ahead of Thursday’s leading trailer’s release.

The first teaser for James Wan’s Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom has arrived, and it’s every bit as exciting as you might expect, with Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) returning to save the planet – land as well as sea – from Black Manta and a danger unlike any he’s ever faced before.

WB has only released a 30-second trailer teaser, announcing that the full trailer will be available online this Thursday, September 14. However, we’d expect marketing to ramp up in the coming Fall months.

Still, the ongoing SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes will probably impact how involved leading actor Jason Momoa is with the first round of promotions.

In the first Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom teaser, Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry splashes on a giant seahorse. The most recent official teaser features vibrant visuals and magnificent and extensive ocean wildlife. 

The action-packed trailer immediately sets the stakes for the next film, with Black Manta declaring proudly, “I’m gonna kill Aquaman and demolish everything he holds dear.”

Following that comes a shot of Momoa’s Arthur Curry uncovering the charred remains of his father’s home. The Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom teaser then flash numerous quick glimpses of the film’s colorful underwater action, including a preview of Arthur’s battle with the Black Manta.

The first look of Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s Black Manta was the highlight of the teaser. The character’s importance in the film’s events will be determined by the build-up to the battle.

Warner Bros. and DC have provided the following summary for the upcoming film.

After failing to defeat Aquaman last time, Black Manta, still motivated by his need for revenge for his father’s death, will go to any length to destroy Aquaman. This time, the Black Manta is more powerful than ever, holding the fabled Black Trident, which summons an ancient and deadly energy. 

To overthrow him, Aquaman will create an odd alliance with his exiled brother Orm, the previous King of Atlantis. They must put aside their differences to safeguard their kingdom and save Aquaman’s family and the entire planet from enduring disaster.
