Brief “Deadpool 2,” “Aquaman” Updates

A new report at What’s Filming within the last day suggested that despite the recent changes behind-the-scenes on the “Deadpool” sequel, production on the superhero comedy follow-up would kick off in January.

Said report is now being labeled incorrect by several sources with March the original start of filming date planned when Tim Miller was onboard to direct. With him gone, it’s expected filming could move even further back.

In more concrete filming news, the Gold Coast Bulletin is reporting that James Wan’s “Aquaman” film is being setup at Village Roadshow Studios in Australia with pre-production to begin later this month ahead of a shoot kicking off early next year.

That film is a lot further along that another movie in the DCEU, the standalone “Man of Steel” sequel which actress Amy Adams offered a brief update on this week. She tells HeyUGuys: “I read about Man of Steel 2 when you guys did. A lot of times I find out after the fact which is fine. It’s completely normal; It’s not indicative of anything. I know they’re working on a script, and I know it’s in the works apparently.”

Both “Deadpool” and “Aquaman” are currently slated for 2018 releases.
