A new rumor suggests that Aquaman 2 will feature a major superhero group from the New 52: The Others.
The Aquaverse, which correctly claimed in 2014 that The Trench would be a part of 2018's Aquaman, tweeted that the upcoming movie would feature The Others from the New 52 Aquaman comics. The account did not provide any sources or any indication of where this information comes from, so it's best to take it with a grain of salt at this time, as it's entirely possible the account is guessing. Plus, Aquaman 2 is still in the early stages of development, so it's unclear if the production would have even determined such an inclusion at this point.
The Others are a team of superhumans led by Aquaman and brought together in order to recover and protect the Dead King's Atlantean Weapons, artifacts of the first king's attempt to reconquer Atlantis. The Others first appeared in Aquaman #7 (written by Geoff Johns, illustrated by Ivan Reis, Joe Prado and Rod Reis) and their story involved Black Manta. As Black Manta survived the events of Aquaman and remains at large their inclusion in the sequel might make sense.
