A lot of Thor talk for an Aquaman thread!

Anyway, I think the Necrus thing is a red herring, as studios often use fake project names to throw people off the scent.

I think the "Lost Kingdom" is Skartaris, and the book you should be looking at is 1st Issue Special #8. 

Of course, I've been saying this since the first Aquaman movie came out, but nothing I've seen from the second one has changed my mind. 

For those who haven't read Warlord, the area in the first Aquaman film where they go to get the trident - through the portal to a weird tropical land full of dinosaurs - that's Skartaris. 

Most of the history of Atlantis in the DCU was explored in the pages of Warlord. The story of the 7th lost tribe they tell in Aquaman is from Warlord #27 - that group that fled the destruction of Atlantis went through a portal and ended up in Skartaris, where they founded New Atlantis.

As for what we've seen of the sequel, besides the name "Lost Kingdom" potentially being a reference to "The Lost World of the Warlord," there's also the fact that the photo of the "Necrus" scene clacker thing was in an ice cave.

This is potentially important because the main portal to Skartaris is in an ice cave in Siberia. This is shown several times, including this instance in Warlord #128:

Aquaman himself had a crossover with Warlord at one point also, though I'm not sure how relevant that story might be to the movie.

All of this.
