Jason Momoa has promised fans they can expect “a lot more” from the Aquaman sequel.

The 40-year-old actor starred in his first solo DC movie in 2018, which took more than £880 million at the global box office, and has already begun work on the follow-up with Warner Bros and director James Wan.

Momoa told Entertainment Tonight: “There’s a lot more in store on so many more levels. There’s going to be a lot. It’s way bigger!”

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

Momoa, who has played half-human, half-Atlantean hero Arthur Curry since 2015, also spoke of his delight at welcoming step-daughter Zoe Kravitz to the DC Universe, after she was cast as Catwoman.

Momoa revealed: “That’s actually the first thing I said to her -‘Your life’s going to change. I’ve been hiding for a good solid 18 years and all of a sudden, Aquaman happened and boom!

“So, that’s the one thing I don’t even know if I’m prepared for - she’s going to be huge. She’s beautiful, she’s talented. She’s going to kill it and [I’ll be like], ‘Well, welcome to the team baby!’”

Kravitz is the daughter of musician Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet, who is now married to Momoa.

Momoa recently finished work on Denis Villeneuve's hotly anticipated remake of Dune, due out in 2020, and was recently confirmed to lead See, the new mini-series which will be the flagship show of Apple TV's new streaming service Apple TV+.

The high concept series, to be directed by Hunger Games helmsman Francis Lawrence, will take place in a dystopian future where the human race has lost its sight.

According to reports, Apple is spending in the region of $15 million per episode on the show, comparable to Game of Thrones final season budgets.
