The James Wan directed Aquaman film will have a budget of $160 million, according to Heroic Hollywood.
Additionally, the DCEU movie will film in Australia after receiving $22 million to out-buy other potential shooting locations.
Australian Parliament Member Scott Morrison commented on the story:
“Making movies is core business for the Gold Coast, supporting jobs and businesses throughout the region. Our decision to back in ‘Thor’ was a marvel and so will be our decision to back ‘Aquaman'”.
The most recent superhero flick to shoot in the land down under was Thor: Ragnarok, which hits theaters in 2017.
See the character next in the Zack Snyder directed Justice League, hitting theaters on November 17, 2017; Aquaman lands on the big screen on October 5, 2018.
