James Wan Admits Filming Aquaman 2 Was A Painful Experience For Jason Momoa And Team

During the CinemaCon in 2023, Aquaman director James Wan spoke about one of the most anticipated movies of 2023 Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom. The visionary filmmaker even spoke about the challenges the entire crew faced during the filming of the sequel. As reported by the media outlet Cinemablend, he said–

“On the first movie, we really put the actors through a lot of physical pain, you know hanging them on wires and what we call tuning forks. It was not the most comfortable apparatus to be strapped into. With this film we were able to now embrace new technology where we literally captured…literally putting like 100 cameras on the actors, capturing their performances and then taking what they do and then applying that to 3D version of themselves.”

He further explained-

” They say that if it’s not broken don’t fix it. But that’s exactly what James Wan and the crew of Aquaman did ahead of filming The Lost Kingdom. Specifically, a ton of cameras were used to help bring the cast of they movie underwater more easily. We’ll just have to wait and see how this new innovation helps the sequel’s mysterious story.”

While talking about how innovative technology helped him complete the filming of Aquaman 2, James Wan pointed out

“It’s less painful for the actors, which makes it easier for me as well, because they’re not screaming and yelling at me… but the most important thing is it really frees up the filmmaking to really do things I’ve never been able to do before. And that is exciting.”

Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom is set to release on 20 December 2023. Check out the official trailer of Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom linked below.
