Aquaman is back and this time, he’ll blend in with his blue surroundings. 

This past weekend, Jason Momoa teased a photo of his new “stealth suit” on Instagram, setting the stage for an expanded aquatic universe in the upcoming sequel, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.

“Second round,” Momoa wrote on Instagram, sharing the new suit alongside its splashier predecessor. “New suit. More action.”

The first photo shows Momoa as the half-human and half-Atlantean Arthur Curry in his original green and orange costume, a throwback to the original comic book look. A second image reveals Momoa’s second Aquaman in a darker costume. Momoa has been in London filming the sequel since early July.

“I am finally in England,” Momoa said in a July 18 video. “It is sunny out, it’s amazing, and I’m gonna start Aquaman 2 tomorrow. This is the last day of the brown. I’m gonna be a blonde. Supposedly [they] have more fun. I don’t know about that. We’ll test it out. But I’m excited to see James (Wan), see my whole cast.”

Wan, who returns as the sequel’s director, explained that the blue suit aligns with 1986’s four-issue miniseries by Neal Pozner in a September press conference, “which deals in this very lurid, strange world.”

 The 2018 film adaptation of Aquaman was a huge commercial success, crossing the $1 billion mark in the global market. Fans, though, were surprised that the horror director (Saw, The Conjuring, etc.) dove into the comic’s 2013 “New 52” adventures instead of the superhero’s darker side. 

“People were taken aback that I didn’t throw all that stuff away and make a dark, heavy film. But I didn’t feel that would have been right for it. So with the second film, I feel it will be easier for people to accept where we go because I’ve already laid the foundation.”

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will also see the return of Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Orm, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta. Game of Thrones alum Pilou Asbaek has also joined the cast in an unknown role.

Though the svelte and somber update got praise from fellow action stars like Dwayne Johnson, actor Leslie Jordan couldn’t resist a dig at the water man. 

“Come save me. It’s raining over here.”

Every ‘Creed’ and ‘Rocky’ movie, ranked
Where does "Creed III" fall on our list of the best "Rocky" and "Creed" movies?
Sylvester Stallone and Michael B. Jordan in Creed.

Good sports movies are fairly easy to come by, but great ones can be almost impossible to find. Over the years, the Rocky and Creed franchises have produced movies that fall into each of those categories. When they're good, the movies in this franchise are among the best fighting movies ever made. Even when they're only okay, though, they're still pretty great sports movies.

With the recent release of Creed III, it feels like the appropriate time to take stock of the entire franchise and determine which Rocky movies rise to the top and which ones sink to the bottom. A great Rocky or Creed movie can take a wide variety of  forms, but what matters most is the emotion it evokes in the viewer, and how authentic those feelings are.
