Re: Aquaman (2018, D: James Wan), S: Momoa -- News and Rumor

True, really like Wilson in the two Conjuring movies (hence why Wan cast him now that I think about it). I don't watch The Walking Dead but apparently Morgan is doing good work there.

Re: Aquaman (2018, D: James Wan), S: Momoa -- News and Rumor

I've read the TWD comics. The character he's playing is awesome. I'd assume even that show can't ruin him. I dropped that show like mid season 2 or whatever. I've seen bits and pieces of later stuff. Meh. Unimpressive and crap stories. I may just watch it for the Negan moments.

Wilson is just a cool guy. Really down to earth. Loved him, and everyone, in Bone Tomahawk. Can't stop recommending that one.

I was always kind of meh on Wilson, but he did really good work in season 2 of Fargo.

Re: Aquaman (2018, D: James Wan), S: Momoa -- News and Rumor

Nothing big, but:

'Aquaman' Stunt Choreography To Be Done By 'Mad Max: Fury Road' Team

Quote:
With the production of DC Films' Aquaman starting soon, one can only imagine that the finer details are being taken care of, like stunt choreography and it looks like they are indeed working on that.

Thanks to 9News, we now know that behind the curtains, stunt teams are working on perfecting their craft for the superhero film. Stunt coordinator, Keir Beck, who recently worked on Mad Max: Fury Road, will be working on the James Wan-directed film. “General stunt skills, fighting, if there is water sequences obviously being capable and competent in water,” Beck told 9News.

Also this wouldn't be the first time someone who worked on Mad Max: Fury Road worked for DC Films, Guy Norris was the supervising stunt-coordinator for Suicide Squad and had the same role for Fury Road.

Now with the stunts being prepared one can assume that they have a lot of the cast signed on to play their roles, as stunt teams would need to pick stunt-people to double as the actors for more dangerous sequences early on before production begins.

Jason Momoa plays the titular role, Arthur Curry, he will be joined by Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Orm, and Willem Dafoe as Vulko. Aquaman is set for a October 5th, 2018 date directed by James Wan.

Pointing to involvement in Suicide Squad is NOT a good thing.

Although I liked it (and I know I'm alone around here on that opinion), the stunts weren't the problem. The writing was.

'Aquaman' Finds Its Black Manta Villain With 'Get Down' Actor (Exclusive)

Quote:
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who starred in Netflix’s Baz Luhrmann show The Get Down, is in early talks to put on his wetsuit for Warner Bros. Aquaman movie.

The actor has nabbed the part of Black Manta, one of the DC Comics villains. Director James Wan and the studio have been meeting with numerous actors for the part for the past two weeks, settling on Abdul-Mateen over the weekend. The official offer went out yesterday and the parties are now in talks.

If a deal makes, Abdul-Mateen will suit up as Manta, who first appeared in a DC comic in 1967 and stood out due to his unique battle-costume, trident, and deadly schemes.

Aquaman is a massive undertaking for the studio and the next DC movie to be going before cameras. An April start in Australia is being planned.

Nicole Kidman in Talks to Join 'Aquaman' (Exclusive)

Quote:
Nicole Kidman may be joining the DC Cinematic Universe.

The actress, who is in the Oscar mix this awards season for her work in Lion, is in early talks to play Aquaman’s mother in Aquaman, the big-screen take of the underwater-breathing comic book super hero.
http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hea...aquaman-970652


IIRC she was sought after for Wonder Woman (I think to play Wonder Woman's mother) but declined after a death in the family.

'Star Wars' Actor Temuera Morrison In Talks to Join 'Aquaman' (Exclusive)

Quote:
Temuera Morrison, perhaps best known for his work playing Jango Fett in the Star Wars prequels, is in negotiations to join the cast of Aquaman, Warner Bros.’s big-screen take of the classic DC Entertainment underwater-breathing comic book superhero.

Morrison will play Aquaman’s human father.

Pointing to involvement in The Prequels is NOT a good thing.

Re: Aquaman (2018, D: James Wan), S: Momoa -- News and Rumor

Possible synopsis:

Quote:
“Aquaman” will center on Aquaman as a reluctant ruler of the underwater kingdom of Atlantis who is caught between land dwellers that are always polluting the globe and his own people who are ready to invade the surface.

Every time this thread gets bumped I keep thinking the post will say that Wan left.

Re: Aquaman (2018, D: James Wan), S: Momoa -- News and Rumor

Why? IMO he'll make a kick ass movie and from what I've read, won't have to deal with studio interference and Snyder will be a producer in name only.

Han Solo is opening on May 25th.

Of course, Disney could move it back to December but right now December is open, so it is a smart move.
