A member of the Aquaman film crew was stabbed outside of a St. Johns bar after the productions wrap party last Friday in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
According to CBC News, the film crew member was speaking with some women outside the Greensleeves Irish pub on George Street when a young man approached and the confrontation began. The area itself is a hot spot for tourists as it is known for its stretch of bars and pubs.
The heated encounter cooled down only for the man to return later on and start a fight. That was when the Aquaman film crew member was attacked from behind by a second man with a knife.
The attacker — a 22-year-old man from Mount Pearl — has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault and assault with a weapon.
The crew member was taken to a hospital and treated for his wound. He was released and is okay but rattled by the experience of the assault. Three other bystanders were also injured when they tried to subdue the attacker — who managed to flee before the authorities arrived, however, he was arrested a few days later.
The film stars Jason Momoa as the titular hero Aquaman, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko and Patrick Wilson as Orm a.k.a. Ocean Master, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus, Ludi Lin as Murk, with Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna and Temuera Morrison as Arthur’s father.
Aquaman hits theaters on December 21, 2018.

5 Things We Want To See In ‘Flashpoint’
With DC revealing that the upcoming Flash movie will be titled Flashpoint, fans are wracking their brains trying to figure out what will happen. While the story is famous for rebooting the DC universe before the New 52 initiative, the series is chop full of awesome moments. The book is full of awesome alternate versions of characters and emotional moments that ground the universe-changing story in a deeply personal core narrative. For those who don’t know, Flashpoint follows what happens after Barry Allen travels back in time to save his mother on the night of her murder. When he returns to the present, he finds that everything he’s ever known is different and he’s even lost his powers.
It might not be the perfect story to introduce people to the larger Flash universe, but I trust Geoff Johns. Hopefully now that the plot seems to be a bit more set, a director or directors (I’m looking at you Phil Lord and Chris Miller) will step onto the project soon and help mold it into something awesome. If Warner Bros. chooses to introduce an alternate version of the DC Extended Universe to the bigscreen, there’s no one I’d rather explore it with than Flash. Barry Allen is the heart and soul of the DCU, so it’s only fitting to watch him try and inject some light into a dark version of his home.
