Aquaman Emerges From the Deep in Justice League Set Images

Even as “Aquaman” inches closer to the start of filming in Australia, new images have surfaced of Jason Momoa as DC’s Sea King on the Iceland set of “Justice League.”

The shots, which depict a shirtless Momoa emerging from the undoubtedly icy waters, are actually screencaps from “Canvas of My Life,” a short film narrated and produced by the actor that focuses on his life, family and career.

The images circulate just as the government of Queensland, Australia, officially announced it has secured production of “Aquaman” following negotiations with Warner Bros., and the promise of a roughly $16 million U.S. tax rebate. The film is expected to inject nearly $120 million into the local economy, and create about 1,200 local jobs. It will be the first DC Films production to shoot in Australia.

The James Wan film was targeted to begin pre-production last month at Village Roadshow Studios in Oxenford, where Marvel’s “Thor: Ragnarok” recently wrapped.

Written Will Beall (“Gangster Squad”) from a story treatment by Wan and DC Entertainment President Geoff Johns, “Aquaman” has been described by the director as “a classic sort of swashbuckling action adventure, sort of high seas adventure story.” “It’s ultimately a quest story in the spirit of ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ meets ‘Romancing the Stone,’” he said.

Opening Oct. 5, 2018, “Aquaman” also stars Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko and Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master.
