Jason Momoa teases fans with first look at new dark blue ‘stealth suit’ for Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom: ‘New suit. More action’
Aquaman is getting a makeover of sorts for the much-anticipated sequel that’s slated to hit theaters late next year.
On Sunday, Leading man Jason Momoa unveiled the superhero’s new suit for the upcoming follow-up – Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom.
And the leading man showed a bit of dramatic flare in the unveiling by first showing his Arthur Curry character in the green and orange costume that he wore in the blockbuster 2018 film, which was a throwback to the original comic book.
A second photo shows Momoa striking an impressive pose in the new dark blue costume that has accents of grey chrome.

Director James Wan also posted the two new photos on his Instagram page, along with some details on the origins of the so-called stealth suit.
‘Here’s @prideofgypsies in the classic #Aquaman suit AND a sneak peek at his other outfit — the stealth suit. Atlantean tech based on cephalopod’s camouflaging ability. David Leslie Johnson and I were inspired by the 80’s “blue suit”,’ he shared in the caption.

From the sounds of Wan’s comment, it appears as though Arthur Curry will wear both the original orange and green outfit and new dark blue outfit for the Aquaman sequel.
Along with the new suit, Aquaman will also be sporting newly dyed blonde locks for his next adventure.
‘This is the last day of the brown. I’m gonna be a blonde,’ he announced in an Instagram video just before shooting for the film began in London, England in mid-July.
‘They supposedly have more fun. I don’t know about that, we’ll test it out.’
