Aquaman 2: Temuera Morrison gives first details on The Lost Kingdom
Warner Bros. seemed to have clinched gold when they released the very first live-action Aquaman movie. The Jason Momoa-directed film followed Justice League’s poor performance in 2017, but grossed over $ 1.1 billion at the box office. While the official DC Comics Cinematic Universe timeline is left hanging (after Zack Snyder’s Justice League, which included the death of Arthur Curry), Aquaman 2 continues with James Wan directing the film once again, this time titled The Lost Kingdom. Temuera Morrison, who plays Arthur’s father Tom Curry, also returns in the series.
Tom was the heart of the first film, as its story revolved around waiting for his long lost love, Atlanna (Nicole Kidman), to return to him.
Addressed exclusively to Express.co.uk Regarding her new movie Occupation: Rainfall, Temuera gave some advice on working on the upcoming second movie.
The Star Wars actor said: “I’m going out [to shoot] in September. I think they want to do another oneâ¦ I think they start earlier.
When told about her story, Temuera just said, “I haven’t been in it for that long!”

Temuera went on to discuss work on the first Aquaman movie.
He remembers: âYes, they gave me a wig and made me look younger! James Wan was there. I think I got the part because Jason [Momoa] love [1994 film] Were once warriors [which Temuera starred in].
“Jason was a big push because he wanted me to play his dad and the studio talked and I met the casting agentâ¦ and yes the next minute I’m here.”
The New Zealand star also spoke candidly about her last emotional scene in the film which involved Atlanna returning to Tom after decades of intervals.

Temuera recalls, âWell, yeah, I had to lean on something that day.
“I remember going there, manâ¦ I hope the god of emotion comes today because it should be emotional.”
âWe were in a studio everything was built. I remember that day, the pressure was there, the pressure was there.
Temuera has recently come under even more pressure for his role as Peter in Occupation: Rainfall.

While filming the next movie, Temuera had a lot of physical scenes to work on – something he’s proud to have done himself.
He said: âWe are moving forward in our years but we are getting physical and I needed to move! I said, ‘Hey give me more [stunts]! ‘â
He also assured fans: “If you see my face [itâs me doing the scenes]. There is no CGI here.
“I know all about it, but I’m telling you it was all me!” I am suffering from the consequences, do not worry.
Occupation: Rainfall is the sequel to Occupation in 2018, in which Temuera played the same character.
And it looks like he’s already looking forward to delving into a third film in the series – should the opportunity arise.
Speaking about another movie, he said, âWell let’s say we’re still open. We must always be open. You have to open the door, sit down, have a cup of tea and talk. Talk about things. We’ll see what happens.”
Occupation Rainfall is in theaters and digitally starting July 9 from Signature Entertainment
Aquaman is available now on Amazon Prime Video while Aquaman 2 The Lost Kingdom will be released on December 16, 2022.
