Introduction

The trailer for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom was released yesterday, and it has generated a lot of excitement among the fans. The most awaited sequel of James Wan’s incredibly successful Aquaman is set to hit theaters on 20th December 2023, and it’s sure to be one of the most anticipated blockbusters of the year. It will be the last DCEU movie after the reboot of the DC universe by Co-chairman James Gunn’s Superman Legacy. I hope to see Jason Momoa reprise his role in the future.

The sequel, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will see Arthur Curry facing new threats from both within and without his kingdom, including Black Manta, who is back for revenge. The Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom takes place four years after the first film. And our Arthur has become a father and is still the king of Atlantis. He is trying to manage his personal life and underwater life together.

The film features Jason as Arthur Curry / Aquaman, Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Orm Marius / Ocean Master, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as David Hyde / Black Manta.

The trailer for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is packed with exciting new information about the film. From the return of familiar characters to the introduction of new ones, the trailer gives us a lot to look forward to.

But in addition to the big plot points and action sequences, there are also several smaller details in the trailer that a normal viewer might miss. These details can provide clues about the film’s story, characters, and themes.

In this article, I’ll break down the Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom trailer and discuss some of the details that you might have missed. I’ll also explain what these details could mean for the film.

Aquaman 2 missed details

What is the connection between Aquaman’s Baby and the Black Manta?

In the comics, the baby is also known as Aquababy. The Aquababy has a lot of powers. When he was born, Aquaman and Mera were very happy but then Black Manta kidnapped him and locked him up in a chamber. And slowly starts extracting water from him. Because the child cannot breathe outside water. Black Manta made Aquaman fight Aqualad for Aquababy’s life. They fought, and it changed their relationship forever. Afterwards, Aquaman finds out that Aquababy is dead.

At the start of the movie, Aquaman’s child makes an appearance but is not featured again. As the story progresses, events become more personal for Aquaman, all leading in a certain direction. In one shot of the trailer, Mera is seen breaking a window, possibly a chamber.  It may be the same chamber that Aquababy is locked in. So, it points towards one thing that Black manta will probably kill Aquababy.

Black trident aquaman

What is the Black Trident in the movie?

Black Manta is back to avenge his father’s death from Aquaman. To defeat Aquaman he needed some sort of powerful weapon, he must have gone out in search of weapons, but he found a very dangerous Trident the Black Trident. As far as I understand, this is not going to be a common Trident. It possesses some dark magical properties because along with its glowing green color, it is also actually influencing Black Manta. His eyes are glowing green.

Aquaman’s new stealth suit

In 1986, DC Comics designed a blue suit called the Stealth Suit for Aquaman’s mini-series. The reason for this was that due to the suit being blue, Aquaman was able to camouflage himself very well in water. In this shot also we can see the camouflage abilities of this suit. He simply makes Arthur completely invisible.

City of Necrus in Aquaman 2

So according to comic books, Necrus City is a more elusive city than Atlantis which exists under the sea. But if you go to a particular location, you will find Atlantis. Well, that doesn’t happen with Necrus. It is called the “Black City” and is visible only at a particular moment when the Earth comes to a particular magnetic field.

But if we talk about who was the person who first wielded the trident and became the king of this city, then it would probably be Mongo, the ruler of Necrus. And after taking this Trident, Black Manta has got all those powers. And by using the same trident, perhaps he can revive Necrus’s entire dead army. You can see dead bodies coming alive out of their graves. Whose eyes have a green glow.

Conclusion

Some of the details I have written above are based on fan theories and comics and are not official or confirmed. In the interest of avoiding extra spoilers, I have omitted some additional details about this movie.

The trailer looks amazing and I am very excited about this movie. I hope it will be a massive success and hit Blockbuster.
