Previously, Warner Bros. exclusively presented a trailer for the Aquaman sequel at the annual CinemaCon convention in Las Vegas, exclusively for theatre owners. However, that particular trailer was not released to the general public.
The teaser, officially shared by DC on YouTube, confirms the return of Amber Heard in her role as Mera. The teaser's description outlines the central conflict, stating that Black Manta, driven by the desire to avenge his father's death, is more determined than ever to bring down Aquaman. Armed with the formidable Black Trident, he wields an ancient and evil power. Aquaman must seek an unlikely alliance with his imprisoned brother, Orm, the former King of Atlantis, to counter this threat. Together, they must put aside their differences to safeguard their kingdom, protect Aquaman's family, and prevent the irreversible destruction of their world.
Amber Heard made her comeback to the acting scene following a widely publicised defamation trial involving her ex-husband, actor Johnny Depp. Depp had filed a defamation lawsuit against Heard, alleging that she had defamed him in a 2018 article. Her independent film In the Fire marked a comeback movie for her with the director, Conor Allyn. Her highly anticipated fantasy film Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, directed by James Wan, is poised for release on December 20.
