The King of Atlantis is swimming back into the DCEU at super speed. Jason Momoa has revealed he has started filming on the new aquatic superhero movie, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, in London today.

The popular star took to his Instagram yesterday, posting a video of himself giving fans an update on the production’s status and confirming that Aquaman will be trading in his dark locks once again for the iconic blonde do, inspired by the original DC comics, in this underwater sequel. The video shows Momoa smiling happily during an uncharacteristically hot day in England. The star touches base with fans, thanking them for their support with his HD Momoa line with Harley Davidson, and confirming that shooting for the sequel to the wildly successful 2018 film, Aquaman, is on track with no delays in sight.

“I’m finally in England. It’s sunny out; it is amazing, and I’m going to start Aquaman 2 tomorrow,” Momoa says in the recording. “This is the last day of the brown. I’m going to be a blonde. Supposedly I’ll have more fun. I don’t know about that. We’ll test it out.”

The star went on to exclaim his excitement to see director James Wan and the rest of the cast; however, no plot or behind the scenes hints or clues were given during his recording. Story details for Aquaman 2 are still being kept under wraps. Little is known about the upcoming DC feature apart from its title, a few cast members, and that principle photography for the movie officially began earlier this year on June 28.
