As well-established in the original LEGO Movie in 2014, and its spinoff The LEGO Batman Movie in 2017, minifigure characters based on DC superheroes are prominent in the LEGO Movie-verse (given it’s produced under Warner Bros. which owns DC). We can certainly expect the usual LEGO DC characters when The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part arrives February next year.
One particular DC hero that viewing fans are interested to see is Aquaman, who recently headlined his own solo live-action film this December starring Jason Momoa. While his LEGO rendition was a blink-and-miss-it background cameo in LEGO Batman’s movie, for LEGO Movie 2 he’ll be front and center, and reimagined.
The official LEGO Movie 2 Instagram page just previewed the first image of LEGO Aquaman as redesigned to fit his current iconic look from Jason Momoa’s portrayal. It’s well known since the 2018 San Diego Comic Con that Aquaman voiced by Momoa himself will have an expanded appearance in the sequel. The interesting thing is, he might not replace the default LEGO Aquaman at all.
Seen in the short clip above, shirtless Momoa-Aquaman had just used the comic-accurate yellow-green costumed Aquaman as a surfboard. Having both variants in LEGO Movie 2 opens up lots of possibilities in future film installments.
The LEGO Movie 2 will premiere February 8 next year.
