'Aquaman' Cast Assembles in First Table Read Photo
The Aquaman cast is in after school trouble, at least according to director James Wan.
Wan shared a photo of himself with stars Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Patrick Wilson (the villain Ocean Master) and Amber Heard (Mera), throwing in a reference to the 1985 coming of age classic The Breakfast Club.
"After school detention with the new Breakfast Club," Wan tweeted.
Momoa's Aquaman is slated to begin production this spring in Australia. The character first appeared in last year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and will next swim into theaters for Justice League in November. His own solo movie will hit Oct. 5, 2018.
Momoa recently told The Hollywood Reporter one of the most challenging parts of joining the DC Extended Universe was not being able to tell anyone about the role for months.
"I knew I had the role in late 2012 or early 2013," says Momoa. "I was trying to get any role I could, and not having much luck. So, knowing what your future is going to be in the next five or six years and having to keep your mouth shut is brutal."
