It looks like Black Manta is coming for Aquaman’s entire family, including the family members he doesn’t get on with. The teaser shows Arthur Curry’s half-brother Orm (played by Patrick Wilson) being attacked by a spidery underwater vehicle that seizes him in one of its claws. According to the official synopsis for “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” having a common enemy will create opportunities for a bit of brotherly bonding:
Having failed to defeat Aquaman the first time, Black Manta, still driven by the need to avenge his father’s death, will stop at nothing to take Aquaman down once and for all. This time Black Manta is more formidable than ever before, wielding the power of the mythic Black Trident, which unleashes an ancient and malevolent force. To defeat him, Aquaman will turn to his imprisoned brother Orm, the former King of Atlantis, to forge an unlikely alliance. Together, they must set aside their differences in order to protect their kingdom and save Aquaman’s family, and the world, from irreversible destruction.
“Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” arrives in theaters on December 20, 2023. Look out for the full trailer next week.
