Aquaman 2 director James Wan revealed the movie’s official title.

The sequel to 2018’s Aquaman is now titled Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. Wan revealed the title in an Instagram post, which also featured images from a production meeting related to the movie. “The tide is rising,” he wrote in the caption.

In the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), there are seven Atlantean kingdoms, which were formed after the fall of the Atlantean Empire. The first Aquaman film featured six of the kingdoms — Atlantis, Xebel, the Kingdom of the Trench, the Kingdom of the Brine, the Kingdom of the Fishermen and the Kingdom of the Deserters. The seventh, missing kingdom was briefly referenced and will most likely be the focus of the sequel.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is set to begin filming this summer in London under the reported working title Necrus, and the film has started to round out its cast. Pilou Asbaek, who portrayed the sea captain Euron Greyjoy on Game of Thrones, joined the sequel in an undisclosed role. Meanwhile, returning cast members Amber Heard and Patrick Wilson are hard at work getting back into shape for the superhero sequel.
