King of all the seas! Aquaman, a.k.a. Arthur Curry, is finally headed back to the big screen — and he’s doing it in a whole new wardrobe.

More action,” the Game of ThronesThe Instagram post was shared by the alum along with a photo of him in the outfit. It is a solid blue outfit with dark silver accents.

Wan mentioned another classic horror movie in an interview as one of his major inspirations. The Lost Kingdom. “Aquaman 2This is heavily inspired Planet of the Vampires,” he told Total Film in August 2021, referencing Mario Bava’s 1965 movie. “You can take the boy out of horror, but you can never take the horror out the boy.”
