James Wan shares first image from set of Aquaman declaring it’s now filming…

May 3rd, 2017 by Marc Comments

Well, we’ve glimpsed Jason Momoa as Aquaman in Batman V Superman and we got a good taste of his character in the new trailer for Justice League (here) and, yeah, we dig it.

But now director James Wan has shared the first image from the set of the Aquaman movie on Twitter (below) and we’re so excited to live in a world where an Aquaman movie is filming!

The image seems to be of the interior of a submarine (perhaps the one filming Aquaman in BvS? Just a thought) and has the words “Months of intensive prep have led to this. Here we go” written by Wan.

We also think it’s safe to assume that the movie is codenamed Ahab… and we reckon that’s a pretty obvious Moby Dick reference.

So there you have it… Aquaman is officially filming.

Aquaman is released on December 21st, 2018

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
