Aquaman Officially Begins Filming

Filming has officially begun on Aquaman. Jason Momoa made a quick debut as Arthur Curry in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and is poised to have a much larger role this fall in Justice League. With the Justice League trailers depicting him as a possible breakout star within the DC Extended Universe, the December 2018 release for Aquaman can't get here soon enough for many. For director James Wan, it will mark his biggest film to date and one that will try to further change the perception that Aquaman is more joke than hero.

In order to do this, Warner Bros. and DC have changed up his look and in doing so have done the same for the look of Mera (Amber Heard) and presumably the rest of Atlantis. Aquaman will open up the underwater world of the DCEU and it now moves one step closer to becoming a reality with Wan announcing the start of production.

Wan made the announcement on Twitter, posting a photo from the set in Australia where he, the cast, and crew have traveled to for the majority of production. His announcement comes with a picture of the clapper highlighting the film's working title of Ahab with a rather clever design. Other than that, the rest of the photo shows the inside of a submarine, possibly indicating some more Earth-related scenes to start.
