“General stunt skills, fighting, y’know,” stunt coordinator Keir Beck told Australia’s 9News, “if there is water sequences, obviously being capable and competent in water.” The accompanying video shows Beck and his team, who also worked on “Mad Max: Fury Road,” rehearsing for another film.
Cameras are expected to roll on the Warner Bros. film early next year at Village Roadshow Studios in Queensland, which was recently used for Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok” and Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.”
For “Aquaman,” Jason Momoa reprises his role from “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and the upcoming “Justice League” for what director James Wan (“Furious 7,” “The Conjuring”) has described 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.
Wan’s comments have led to speculation that the film’s plot will involve the search for the Trident of Poseidon, a powerful mystical weapon in the DC Universe that can control and conjure water, and create water elements, fog and intense storms, and fire bolts of energy.
“Aquaman” screenwriter Will Beall, whose script is based on a story treatment by Wan and DC Entertainment President Geoff Johns, teased in August that “not all of the action takes place underwater. Some of the most fun action in the movie actually takes place on dry land.”
Opening Oct. 5, 2018, “Aquaman” also stars Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master, Willem Dafoe as Vulko and Amber Heard as Mera.
