DC Extended Universe will be showing another of their franchise from its comic book superhero "Aquaman." DC comics have already introduced the character in More Fun Comics #73 in November 1941 and since then it has 8 published volumes, the latest last June. "Aquaman" already had various animated shows on tv and on the big screen where he showed on several DC Universe Animated Original Movies.

The direction of the movie will be in the hands of James Wan who is popularly known to have created Billy the Puppet in the movie "The Saw."His numerous horror creations from "Insidious" and "The Conjuring" and the successful 7th installment of "The Fast and Furious" as he makes it earn $1.5 billion despite the loss of Paul Walker. This time, James Wan's ingenuity on his craft will be tested as Hollywood Reporter reports how complicated "Aquaman" shootings will be.

James Wan has always been making the best out of his movies that are why he wants to accomplish the scenes using real actors and less on the computer graphics. The Times of India reports how challenging shooting an underwater scene as it must be in comparison to the accuracy of details if it will be in computer generated imagery. Since doing all the acting while surrounded by water makes it more compromised from the costume to how the hair of the actor will move.

Everything is made difficult because of being underwater for almost all the time, and by this, the safety of the actors and the time allotted for each scene cannot be done quickly. Despite all this, James Wan works to perfection and has a goal to make all his efforts worth it when the movie will be released. A significant character called King Nereus in addition to Jason Momoa has also joined the cast and will be portrayed by "The Expendables" star Dolph Lundgren.

The success of DC Extended Universe' latest film "Wonder Woman" has already set the ropes for DC to make live-action superhero movies. It is both a blessing and a motivation for "Aquaman" to ride on to its success as it premieres next year December.
