James Wan’s Aquaman solo film is one of the more mysterious DC Film projects, and while the plot remains that way, fans are starting to get an idea of what the scenery will look like.
It was already confirmed that the film will shoot mostly at the Village Roadshow Studios in Australia, but Wan’s social media account previously revealed another location that might show up in the project. Wan shared a photo with the Castle of Venus in the background, which is located in Italy. The caption read: “Hanging on a boat. What a gorgeous, picturesque location. Maybe for a movie of high sea-adventures??”
Now that has actually been cleared, and the project will film at that location in September of 2017 (via SMTV Reports). As for the characters themselves, Wan is looking forward to fans really getting to know the royal King and Queen in the upcoming Justice League.
"I think Amber and Jason Momoa, in their moments in Justice League, [are] going to give the rest of the world a flavor of what their own standalone movie could be," Wan explained. "And that is just scratching the surface of what I plan to do."
Aquaman is directed by James Wan with Will Beall, Geoff Johns, Paul Norris, and Mort Weisinger on writing duties. Rob Cowan is serving as executive producer and Deborah Snyder and Zack Snyder serving as producers. The film stars Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Amber Heard (Mera), Patrick Wilson (Orm) and Willem Dafoe (Nuidis Vulko).
