Filming on Warner Bros. and DC Films’ Aquaman officially kicked off earlier this month, with director James Wan sharing a behind-the-scenes photo to mark the start of production. It was a small tease featuring the clapperboard for the film and a sneak peek at a water set, however, the real treat for fans came when Wan shared an image of Amber Heard’s Mera having just emerged from water. It was the first look of Heard on set, and now thanks to a fan, we have a look at the leading man officially joining his leading lady to film a scene.
The photo, which comes from a fan via Twitter, sees Heard joined by Aquaman himself, Jason Momoa, filming a scene together by a dock. While Mera’s sporting her new look, a costume that resembles her character’s comic book duds rather than her Justice League outfit, Momoa’s costume is hidden beneath a trench coat.

This is the first real set photo we’ve seen since filming kicked off at the beginning of the month. Other set photos have focused on Amnesty Bay.
Production on Aquaman is already underway at Village Roadshow Studios in Queensland, Australia, most recently used for Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok. Filming will also take place in Newfoundland, Sicily and Tunisia.
Arriving on December 21, 2018, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Orm, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko and Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna.
