Warner Bros. Pictures has set an October 5th 2018 release date for the James Wan-directed, Jason Momoa-led standalone “Aquaman” film in 3D and IMAX.
Based on the DC Comics character, Momoa plays the king of Atlantis who made his debut in a cameo in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” in March and will reprise the role in “Justice League” due next November.
“Aquaman” is set to begin shooting in Australia next summer and a separate report at Production Weekly indicates the film is going by the working title of “Ahab” which will be used to keep snoops away from the sets.
The studio originally had three DC films set for 2018 – “The Flash” for March 26th, “Aquaman” for July 27th and an untitled for October 5th. With “Aquaman” being moved from the second to the third slot, that leaves that second slot open.
Warners has yet to set an official date for its Ben Affleck-directed “The Batman” solo film, could it take over that July slot?
