DC’s Aquaman commences filming in Queensland

Principal photography has begun on Aquaman in what will be the DC Comics hero’s first ever solo film. Directed by James Wan (The Conjuring films, Furious 7). Jason Momoa stars in the title role.

The film will technically be the King of Atlantis’ third appearance following a brief cameo in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and his first major part in this November’s Justice League film. Of course this is all tied into Warner Bros. extended DC Universe not unlike what Marvel put in motion over a decade ago.

The film also stars Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Temuera Morrison, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Patrick Wilson and Nicole Kidman.

The shoot will take place mainly in locations spanning the stunning Gold Coast of Queensland, as well as Newfoundland, Sicily and Tunisia. Extensive filming to be accomplished at Village Roadshow Studios.

Aquaman is set for a 2018 release.
