One of the few bright spots of DC and WB’s big-screen efforts, Aquaman, will eventually, at some point have a sequel film. Most everything that was in production is on hiatus due to the current state of the world. Even so, the movie world moves forward in the ways that it still can, namely the writing process.
David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, the writer of the first Aquaman film, who is also set to pen the sequel, gave fans a little insight into where his head is at as far as the sequel, spoiler-free of course. You can check out what he had to say below.
Hmm… Good question. We're not taking any one particular comic book story and adapting it, but if you want to know the vibe we're going for, pick up pretty much any Silver Age story featuring Black Manta.

Dc made a great choice is choosing Momoa to star in the films. Aquaman hasn’t always been treated with a great amount of respect as his ability to talk to fish has been the center of many jokes. Momoa brings both a vibe of badassness along with appearing to be a big-time actor that would have no problem having a beer on the beach with one of us lowly peasants.
