Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom London film premiere 2023
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 dons a blue stealth suit in this film, which carries the octopus-inspired ability to change color. The blue suit comes from the 1986 Aquaman comics.
- Despite working as a performer since the early 1980s, this film marks Nicole Kidman's first movie sequel, in which she appeared in the previous entry. She previously appeared in the sequel Batman Forever (1995), but did not appear in the previous movie, nor the follow up.

- Former DC Films president Walter Hamada wanted Michael Keaton's Batman to be similar to Nick Fury, having cameos in multiple films, including Batgirl, The Flash (2023), and this film.

- This is the fourth DC movie released in 2023, after Shazam! Fury of the Gods (2023), The Flash (2023), and Blue Beetle (2023), setting the record for the most DC movies released in a single year.
