Aquaman may not have reached cinemas in the UK, but Warner Bros are already planning a sequel.

Thanks to a strong box-office prediction – $65 million in the US according to analysts – the studio’s chairman Toby Emmerich has already begun planning another underwater adventure.

The Hollywood Reporter notes that no writer has been employed yet, but Amber Heard and Jason Momoa would return for the next film.

Momoa first played the superhero in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, making a cameo appearance as the reluctant king of Atlantis.

He later returned as the character for Justice League, alongside Henry Cavill’s Superman, Ben Affleck’s Batman and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman.

Aquaman – which stars Momoa, Read, Willem Dafoe, Nicole Kidman and Dolph Lundgren – has already been released in China, where the movie is estimated to finish its debut weekend with a box-office gross of $80 million.

The film does not reach UK cinemas until the 14 December.
