While many of the future projects of the DC Extended Universe seem to have been stymied by behind the scenes, creative turmoil, Aquaman is soldiering on like a finely tuned motorboat or submarine. Production has finally begun on the film about the King of the Seven Seas, the bold new take on a character typically thought of as lame by any superhero standard, but in the hands of Jason Mamoa, Aquaman has taken in turn to the bad ass, and his solo adventure is one of the most anticipated superhero movies coming out next year.

The DC Extended Universe continues to grow despite poor reviews on its recent films. It seems nothing will stop the juggernaut production company from bringing about the worlds of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and soon, Aquaman. For those who watched Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice and have been following the news, they already know that Jason Momoa will be playing the titular hero also known as Arthur Curry. Now a new cast member has been announced. Who will Dolph Lundgren be playing? Find out after the bump!
The big DC Films team-up movie, Justice League, is set to drop a whole new trailer this upcoming Saturday (March 25,) so of course that means a galactic threat level hype machine is currently laying waste to social media across the globe that would leave Despero envious. From Twitter, to YouTube, to Facebook and beyond, Warner Bros. social media interns have been enduring the first 3 cords of The White Stripes ‘Icky Thump’ on repeat as each member of the team has been getting their own 20 second teaser and character poster.
Aquaman was up first, shortly followed by a few other teammates: (more…)
With production set to start on Aquaman this summer the gentle tide of information on the DCEU film is slowly starting to roll in. The films star, Jason Momoa, took a break from his grueling (most likely trident centric) preparations to talk with Digital Trends.
Fans and detractors have spent decades making jokes at the expense of the King of the Seven Seas, how did Momoa approach playing the Justice League’s monitor duty marathon champion and chief fish translator? (more…)
Since the earliest ideas about the upcoming Aquaman movie has far surpassed the expectations that anyone had of the submarine superhero. Jason Momoa‘s burly protagonist reinvented Aquaman in a way that fit with the dark and powerful new image that DC has been creating for its heroes in its most recent wave of movies. Between director James Wan and a screenplay by Will Beall, the movie has had fans talking for some time already, even though it is not due for release until the summer of 2018. According to the The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros has been making progress with the rest of the cast. (more…)
Filming is scheduled to start on Aquaman in a couple of months so no one was really expecting anything to come out of the pre-production until director James Wan tweeted out a cast picture of the table read. Wan, Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Amber Heard (Mera), and Patrick Wilson (Ocean Master) are pictured below going through the script. (more…)
Tone. It’s the word that’s been haunting any and all discussion about the DC Extended Universe since Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice came out back in March. With the critical blowback, not to mention the weaker than expected box office, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have gone on a charm offensive as if to say, “Don’t worry! The rest of these movies won’t be as dark as this!” While we may be dubious of the intentions of Zack Snyder with Justice League, perhaps other filmmakers will have better luck convincing the audience that the DCEU can be bright and shiny too. James Wan, for instance, he has some very particular inspiration in mind for his Aquaman movie. (more…)
Before you think that shooting on Justice League is through, think again. While the in-studio portion of principal photography seems to be over, there’s now location shooting before the cameras, and you know what that means: spy pics! There’s no bigger paparazzi draw than a major Hollywood production out in the open, except maybe an actress that’s just gone through a high-profile ugly divorce, and Justice League is, unfortunately, a two-fer in that regard. So as the production is shooting in Iceland, Warner Bros. beat the spoiler crowd to the punch by revealing Amber Heard as Mera in all her Queen of the Seven Seas glory. (more…)
What would you expect to happen? He rocks out is what happens! Jason Momoa in full Aquaman Battle Armor, yes what we’ve seen Aquaman wearing so far must have been Aquaman’s casual wear because this new heavy-duty suit is rocking. If that wasn’t enough Momoa brought his axe to the party. (more…)
