New Aquaman Movie Logo As Filming Begins & Cast Announced

Director James Wan shared the first on-set image of the highly- anticipated film while weighing on the exhaustive pre-production tasks.

The film also stars Amber Heard ('Justice League", "Magic Mike XXL") as Mera; Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe ('Platoon", "Spider-Man 2") as Vulko; Temuera Morrison ('Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones", "Green Lantern") as Tom Curry; Dolph Lundgren ('The Expendables" films) as Nereus; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (upcoming "Baywatch', Netflix's "The Get Down') as Black Manta; with Patrick Wilson ('The Conjuring' films, "Watchmen') as Orm/Ocean Master; and Oscar victor Nicole Kidman ('The Hours', "Lion') as Atlanna.

"Aquaman" will be released in December 2018 and follows the superhero who is caught between a surface world that ravages the sea and the underwater Atlanteans who are ready to revolt.

Warner Bros. has released the official logo for its Aquaman solo film to celebrate the start of production. The character has not always been popular among the general public and even some comic fans. Director of photography Don Burgess and Editor Kirk M. Morri, known for being part of The Conjuring project are back to work along with other talented artists for Aquaman.

The film is being produced by Peter Safran, with Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, Rob Cowan, Jon Berg and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.

Most of the filming will take place in the Gold Coast of Queensland, Australia. It will also be set in Newfoundland, Sicily and Tunisia. Jason Momoa is starring in the titular role, while Amber Heard will star as Mera and Willem Dafoe will play Nuidis Vulko.
