"There's a lot more in store on so many more levels," Momoa said of Aquaman 2. "There's going to be a lot. It's way bigger!"

Momoa, who plays Arthur Curry, aka Aquaman, said he approached Warner Bros. with his ideas for the sequel.

"I'm really stoked at the fan base and what we did with the movie, and just went into Warner Bros. and DC [Entertainment] and said, 'You know, I have some ideas,'" he said. "And, they love them and [director] James [Wan] and everyone is like, 'We're taking it all in. We're excited to do another one.'"

Momoa had said in the November issue of Esquire that he was working closely with the creative team on Aquaman 2.

"I came in with a big pitch," he said. "I came in with the whole thing mapped out, and they loved it."

The original Aquaman opened in theaters in November 2018 and grossed over $1.2 billion at the box office. The movies co-star Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta.
