Get ready to dive back into the world where ancient predators from the Paleontological Era once roamed. In this place, the deep sea holds both danger and wonder, creating an intriguing mix. This excitement comes with the approaching arrival of Meg 3, casting a shadow of anticipation on the horizon.
The Meg series is like a captivating map that guides you through unexplored territories, filled with a mix of international mystery and heart-pounding thrills.
The entire essence of this series thrives on exciting stories and adventurous escapades that send shivers down your spine, creating a symphony of excitement felt all around the world. Each day feels full of possibilities, and even the calendar itself seems to be buzzing with curiosity.
While Warner Bros. hasn’t officially announced the release of Meg 3 yet, if the sequel performs as well in theaters as the first movie did, there are plans in motion for the series to continue.
The upcoming movie is expected to make a strong start in China, similar to the previous film, which earned an impressive $530 million globally. Despite any doubts, Meg 2 could potentially be another big hit if it can overcome the challenges posed by Barbenheimer’s might.
What to expect from Meg 3
In Meg 2: The Trench, as the title suggests, we actually get to explore the Mariana Trench in the movie. However, the world beneath the thermocline hasn’t been fully explored yet, and there’s confirmation of more enormous creatures lurking there.
This is especially exciting after we witnessed a gigantic Octopus emerging from the depths in Meg 2. With Haiqi still alive and more Megalodons on the way, there’s a lot that Meg 3 could bring to the story.
If Meg 3 becomes a reality, we can expect familiar faces like Jason Statham’s Jonas Taylor, Cliff Curtis’ Mac, Page Kennedy’s Mac, Wu Jing’s Jiuming, and Shuya Sophia Cai’s Meiying to return. Alongside them, we might also see some new characters joining the cast.
Meg 3 Release Date:
Updates about Meg 2: The Trench trace back to October 2018, suggesting that work on the sequel began shortly after the first movie hit theaters.
Around the start of 2019, filmmaker Lorenzo di Bonaventura shared that a screenplay was in the works, as reported by Cinema Blend. Director Wheatley began filming in early 2022, setting the stage for a significant release in 2023.
The post-production phase is likely taking a while due to the advanced and enhanced visual effects, which is possibly why no videos or previews have been released yet. Meg 2: The Trench is set to premiere on August 4, 2023.
While fans are eager, Warner Bros. hasn’t officially confirmed its support for a third Meg movie. As a result, the lack of a confirmed release date for a potential third film shouldn’t be too surprising.
Who will be in the Meg 3 cast?
It’s highly likely that if a Meg 3 is confirmed, Jason Statham will reprise his role as Jonas Taylor. His companions from the first two films, Page Kennedy as DJ and Cliff Curtis as James “Mac” Mackreides, are also expected to return.
We also anticipate the return of Sophia Cai as Meiying Zhang, along with Wu Jing, who joined the Meg 2 cast, to come back as her Uncle Jiuming. And of course, we can’t overlook the most important character in all the Meg movies so far – Kelly as Pippin, the dog.
Here is the expected Meg 3 cast list:
Jason Statham as Jonas Taylor
Wu Jing as Jiuming
Sophia Cai as Meiying Zhang
Page Kennedy as DJ
Cliff Curtis as James “Mac” Mackreides
Kelly the dog as Pippin
When it comes to bad guys, none of the newcomers with evil intentions managed to make it through Meg 2. This suggests that we can expect fresh faces to appear as potential adversaries in the future. Stay tuned to this guide as the list above keeps expanding.

The Meg 3 Plot
While we don’t have official details yet, The Meg 3 might potentially draw inspiration from the third novel in Steve Alten’s series, “Meg: Primal Waters.”
The official synopsis of the book goes like this: “18 years have passed since Jonas Taylor last encountered the carcharodon Megalodon. Now a middle-aged father of two, he is grappling with heaps of bills and the daily challenges of raising a family.
“However, things are about to change. A Hollywood TV producer invites Jonas to join his new reality series: Daredevils. Over the next six weeks, two teams of daring individuals on a South Pacific Ocean voyage will compete against each other, all while being filmed.
Jonas is in need of the money, and the job of providing color commentary seems relatively straightforward. But behind the scenes, someone else is orchestrating events. And before it’s all over, Jonas will once again confront the most perilous creatures to ever roam the Earth.”
Although this is speculative, it provides a glimpse into the kind of story that The Meg 3 could explore, based on the source material.
