Today, we have our first (super early) look at the birth place of Jason Momoa‘s Aquaman.
The Gold Coast Bulletin is reporting that a new set is under construction at Hastings Point in New South Wales, Australia for Warner Bros. Pictures’ and director James Wan’s currently in-production DCEU film Aquaman. The new set is said to be for a very important location in the DC Universe and the life of future Justice League member Aquaman: the lighthouse in which a young Arthur Curry grew up with his father Thomas Curry, who will be played by Jango Fett himself, Temuera Morrison.
James Wan and company will be shooting at the location for three days next month, with Morrison confirmed, and presumably with Kaan Guldur and Otis Dhanji as well, who will both be playing young Arthur Curry, at ages 9 and 13, respectively. At the moment, it is unclear whether or not Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman or any of the other cast members will be shooting at this location.
Head here to check out the lighthouse in progress.
Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry aka Aquaman, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm aka Ocean Master, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus, Ludi Lin as Murk, Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna and Temuera Morrison as Arthur’s father, Thomas Curry.
Jason Momoa’s Aquaman will next appear in Zack Snyder‘s Justice League, alongside Ben Affleck’s Batman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill’s Superman, Ezra Miller’s The Flash and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg, which will also feature Amber Heard’s Mera and Willem Dafoe’s Nuidis Vulko.
Aquaman is slated for a December 21, 2018 release. Justice League hits theaters later this year on November 17, 2017.
