First Official Set Photo For Aquaman Surfaces From The Deep As Production Gets Underway


The King of Atlantis is ready for his close-up now that production on James Wan’s Aquaman movie is officially underway – and the first set photo is here to prove it.

Gearing up for a six-month shoot Down Under, writer-director James Wan took to Twitter to share a new image of what we assume to be the mechanical bowels of a submarine. If you peer close enough, you’ll be able to locate the film’s working title, ‘Ahab’, along with a reworked version of the Aquaman logo that bubbled to the surface just prior to the unveiling of March’s suitably epic Justice League trailer.

Beyond that, there’s not much more information to glean from the still below, but if nothing else, the DC faithful can rest assured that the cameras are now officially rolling on the Aquaman set. Incidentally, Wan yelled “action!” just as Corin Hardy’s horror spinoff The Nun clawed its way in front of the cameras, where James Wan holds a producing credit.

Per Twitter:

Dubbed an outsider and half-breed among the company of his fellow Justice League members, Jason Momoa is confident 2018’s standalone pic will help establish the tone and character of Aquaman for a modern-day audience, and we know from previous interviews that Wan and Co. are on a mission to reinstate Arthur Curry’s status as a cool, yet formidable superhero.

It’s a “quest story,” according to the director, one that’s in keeping with the “spirit of Raiders of the Lost Ark [and] Romancing the Stone,” and we’ll be able to see what all the fuss is about when Aquaman pulls into port on December 21st, 2018. Justice League, meanwhile, is booked in for November 17th of this year.
