Jason Momoa confirms the return of a DC cult hero in ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’

At long last, the news we've all been waiting for is official.

Jason Momoa has been whipping up a frenzy among the DCU fandom for several days now, and very little of it has had anything to do with James Wan’s long-awaited sequel Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.

The star of the highest-grossing DC Comics adaptation ever made has been playing his cards close to the chest when it comes to the ongoing Lobo speculation, even if there’s a large number of people out there growing increasingly convinced that he’s ready to trade being the king of Atlantis for the part of the cult favorite pale-skinned intergalactic bounty hunter.

For a superhero sequel, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom features a surprisingly large amount of returning names compared to new faces, with Momoa being joined by Amber Heard, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Dolph Lundgren, Randall Park, Patrick Wilson, Temuera Morrison, Nicole Kidman, and Willem Dafoe, while Vincent Regan, Indya Moore, and Pilou Asbæk are the only newcomers confirmed so far.

The ratio might be a little off, but Momoa did at least confirm the news we’ve all been waiting for, after admitting to The Wrap that Topo the drumming octopus will also be making a comeback, and we couldn’t be happier about it.

“Oh yeah. He’ll be back alright. But it’s hilarious. It’s wonderful. You’re gonna love it. This moment, I want you to remember that you asked me. It might be one of the funniest moments of the whole movie.”

A cephalopod busting out a killer drum solo was one of the weirdest and most wonderful moments in the already-outlandish Aquaman, so we can’t wait to see how Topo’s second coming manages to raise the bar in the second installment.
