James Wan tweets first ‘Aquaman’ set photo

Aquaman - Momoa

Director James Wan has visually confirmed the start of production on AQUAMAN, the planned sixth film in the DC Extended Universe series of films. Not due out until December 2018 following a delay announced in March, the filmmaker gave us our first look at one of the film’s sets via Twitter.

Simply tweeting “Months of intensive prep have led to this. Here we go. #DayOne #Ahab,” the image appears to show some kind of military base or possible submarine type whatsit. Cinematographer Don Burgess (Monster Trucks, Allied) is also listed on the clapper.
