Dolph Lundgren and James Wan Update on Aquaman

The next DCEU movie is going into additional filming and painstaking post-production tweaks.

With Jason Momoa in its titular role, Aquaman is set to open later this year following the disappointing Justice League. Fans aren't fully convinced by Momoa's take on the King of Atlantis in the failed team-up, but Wan and Momoa have shown potential for greatness.

Aquaman wrapped principle photography last October, and now the movie is getting additional shooting. It's confirmed by Lundgren on his Instagram, an Instagram story of which shows Lundgren inside a car under the caption "Ready for my King Nereus costume." The actor plays King Nereus, the ruler of underwater kingdom Xebel and the father to Aquaman's love interest Mera (Amber Heard).

As of now, there shouldn't be worry about this additional shooting because it's a normal part of movie production. It's likely to improve several scenes after positive early screenings. Plus, Aquaman opens in December, so we have almost nine more months for the first teaser and two or three trailers.

Wan recently took to Twitter to explain the lack of any teaser or promotional material in a series of three tweets:

According to him, post-production takes a little more than usual because underwater scenes need time to get its complex, fantastical look. Wan wants the final product to be impressive, so no teaser for now.
