James Wan discusses difficulties of diving into Aquaman, teases new location

"When I was in the process of writing this character in the world of Aquaman, a friend of mine, Mike Mendez, was working with him on one of his films, and Mike was just raving about how great Dolph was", Wan recalled.

"Momoa is not a guy that you would go up to and make fun of".

News that the Aquaman solo movie is keeping CGI to a minimum will no doubt please ardent DC fans, as it'll bring a sense of gravitas and presence to James Wan's spinoff that VFX simply can't recreate - no matter how talented the visual effects artists happen to be.

"Having said that, I'm not completely unaware of the stigma".

He added, "Our equivalent of two people sitting around chatting in the underwater world is super complicated". I don't think anyone gives him enough credit for how serious he actually takes his craft. According to Hollywood Reporter, Wan further shared that the crew is working with water to the point that even the dry-for-wet sequences are very complicated to shoot. "You have to think about CG (I) with the hair, and how their clothing moves, how are they floating, what kind of rig we put them on and all that stuff".

Is this a small pocket individual issue or does it have wider ramifications that should concern us? We are not asking them to investigate.

Adding to the difficulty is Wan's desire to make minimal use of CGI, opting to shoot with actors as often as possible, which he says makes filming "very hard and time-sucking and time-challenging". Though he admitted that the film is not easy to shoot, he hopes that this will pay off when it comes out in theater soon.

Aquaman is set for a December 21, 2018 premiere. Shooting is now underway on the Gold Coast of Queensland, Australia, with extensive filming to be accomplished at Village Roadshow Studios. Interestingly, the solo film's underlying objective of Arthur Curry fighting for respect from both humans and Atlanteans is something that has also been addressed in the comics, and hopefully, we see some those best moments translate properly onto the big screen, if the filmmakers choose to use those recent issues as inspiration for the Aquaman movie.

Filming on Aquaman continues in Australia with a cast that also includes Dolph Lundgren, Nicole Kidman, Willem Dafoe, Temuera Morrison, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.
