Aquaman 2 Gains Game of Thrones' Pilou Asbaek - Report
Arthur Curry may be king of Atlantis, but King Euron Greyjoy has now joined the cast for Aquaman 2.
After decades of being DC Comics' running joke, Aquaman is truly big money thanks to Jason Momoa. DC is gearing up for the inevitable Aquaman 2, and one of the first new faces is Pilou Asbaek, according to Deadline.
Asbaek is best known for his portrayal of Euron Greyjoy in HBO's Game of Thrones series. News of his casting Aquaman 2 comes via anonymous sources, and there's no word right now what role Asbaek will play in the film.
Aquaman 2 will once again star Jason Momoa in the titular role, and horror director James Wan will return to direct the sequel. David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, who wrote both Aquaman and The Conjuring 2 for Wan, will also write Aquaman 2.
Aquaman made $1.14 billion at the worldwide box office, putting Aquaman in the running alongside characters like Iron Man and Guardians of the Galaxy for "character we definitely didn't expect to be so profitable. Aquaman 2 is currently scheduled to hit theaters on December 16, 2022. Momoa was most recently seen in Zack Snyder's Justice League, and we'll see him next in Denis Villeneuve's Dune this fall.
