Dolph Lundgren Confirms Aquaman Reshoots

As expected, James Wan's Aquaman is headed back in front of the camera for some reshoots. Though we don't yet know what exactly's being fixed/changed.

Though reshoots are completely normal for most big budget blockbusters, the term takes on a new meaning when it comes to the DCEU – and understandably so. But in the case of Aquaman at least, there’s most likely no reason to worry, as with so long to go before the film hits theaters, WB ordering up a bit of additional photography shouldn’t raise any alarms.

After all, we’ve heard some pretty good things coming from recent test screenings, with only one report pointing to a few minor issues that can easily be fixed up with a round of reshoots. Especially one that’s taking place well in advance of release. And so, the fact that Aquaman star Dolph Lundgren has confirmed that the tentpole is indeed heading back in front of the cameras shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.

While we’ve yet to learn what exactly’s being shot, that aforementioned report said test audiences found the film a bit long and jarring when it came to the transition between Act 1 and 2. So, mostly minor issues then and nothing that can’t be worked out before Aquaman swims into theaters. In other words, we’re feeling quietly confident about Arthur Curry’s solo outing and can’t wait to see what James Wan and co. have in store.

Speaking of which, there’s still no word on when that first trailer will dock online, but earlier this week Wan took to Twitter to assure us that it’s on the way – he’s just not ready to share it yet. Many assume it’ll debut alongside Avengers: Infinity War, or at Comic-Con this summer, but that’s all speculation for now.

In the meantime, what we can tell you is that Aquaman will have elements of a horror movie – hardly surprising, given Wan’s résumé – and will apparently be unlike any other DCEU outing we’ve seen before. That’s something that the director himself reiterated while talking with EW a few months back, too, stating that his upcoming standalone pic is more of a traditional “action-adventure quest film.” Sign us up.

“It’s going to look very different, it will feel very different — aesthetically, tonally, story-wise — it’s my own take,” said the director. “It’s a much more a traditional action-adventure quest movie.”

Aquaman docks in theaters on December 21st. And for the first time in four years, this Christmas will be completely Star Wars free, as Lucasfilm has angled Solo: A Star Wars Story for release on May 25th.
