Yeah, the hair looks platinum blonde like Orm's is supposed to be. Pretty sure it's not Arthur.

That would make sense, the costume doesn't look like Aquaman and I wouldn't think they'd associate Ocean Master with whales.
We've seen his forces ride sharks, and I think a lot of people see whales as benevolent, gentle giants.

Temuera Morrison believes he has one man to thank for what looks to be a stellar second-half of 2018 for the veteran Kiwi actor.

About to hit New Zealand screens in the low-budget Aussie sci-fi Occupation, the 57-year-old former Once Were Warriors and Star Wars: Attack of the Clones star is also scheduled to appear in the blockbuster big-screen adaptation of Aquaman and the third series of Netflix's 18th Century-set fur trading drama Frontier before the year is out.

Those last two are a result of the efforts of Jason Momoa, who used his headliner status on both projects to secure roles for his "idol" Morrison.

"He's taken care of me that's for sure," the humbled Rotorua-born actor says of his colleague, who is nearly 20 years his junior.

"Jason gave me the nod for Aquaman [Morrison plays Momoa's character Arthur Curry's father Thomas], just as an opportunity to meet me. I think Once Were Warriors really moved him in a way both in terms of his culture and his own identity. I think it shook him up a bit. I even heard him say a few words to his kids when they visited the set [on Australia's Gold Coast]: 'This is the fella who get me into the business kids'. He really respected my performance."

Somewhat more diminutive than his 6 ft 3 co-star, Morrison admits he felt "like a little powder puff" when Momoa chased him around or grabbed him and tipped him upside down while on the set.


"Put me down son, put me down," he says he'd have to say to the former Game of Thrones star who affectionately called him "Uncle".

Then, just when Morrison thought his 2017 couldn't get any better, Momoa revealed that he'd written Morrison into the latest series of his Netflix show Frontier.

"So he's like my son now," Morrison laughs. "He took half the stunties [from Aquaman] as well for the big shoot up in Newcastle, England and a place called Newfoundland in Canada.

"Actually, we got to Newcastle just as that Siberian beast, big snowstorm hit and Jason loved that weather so much he wanted to shoot in that freezing cold snow – I was struggling just to keep warm."

Season three of Frontier is scheduled to debut on Netflix in October, Aquaman is due in Kiwi cinemas on Boxing Day and Occupation opens here on July 26.

Aquaman set visit

http://comicbook.com/dc/2018/07/16/a...ails-approach/

Quote:
Moments after sitting in a chair strumming a guitar while shirtless, Jason Momoa hops up onto an immersive set in character as the stubborn, sarcastic Arthur Curry. He hears a mightily important message, directing him to hunt for a trident which can unite the ocean's seven kingdoms, and he smashes it to pieces.

It's a humorous touch from director James Wan, known best for his horror efforts with titles such as The Conjuring, but a step in an evolutionary direction for Warner Bros. and DC Films. During ComicBook.com's visit to the Australian set of Aquaman, Momoa's Arthur Curry and Amber Heard's Mera gained their narrative burdens for the film, seeming to have touches of a heist movie with splashes of terrifying horror.

"I didn't set out to make a horror movie," Wan said. "That's not what this is about. It just so happens that you're dealing in a world that is beautiful, magical, but at the same time, you know, scary as well. People are terrified of the ocean because they don't know what's down there. There's all these creatures that live down in the ocean that are dangerous to humans."

At the same time, humans are dangerous to those animals, which is why Patrick Wilson's Orm the Ocean Master is seeking vengeance against those who have polluted his kingdom.

Aquaman is not a prequel of any kind, but it is an origin story for a character who has appeared on screen twice. After debuting in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and playing a much larger role in Justice League, the aquatic hero is being explored with his own outing this time around. More importantly, it is completely isolated from the previous endeavors.

"I feel like the good thing about having something that isn't really established is I get the opportunity to kind of set the world, set the tone, and set the flavor for who this guy is, and the world that he lives in," Wan said. "That's what we love about superheroes, right? We love that they represent the best part of who we want to be, right? What we strive for, and what we aspire to be. And I think what I liked most about this character, and actually what Jason Momoa brings to it, is the idea that this is a guy who's kind of trapped between two worlds. He doesn't feel like he belonged in the surface world, but he doesn't feel like he belongs in the world of Atlantis as well, the underwater world."

Loaded with impressive visuals, Aquaman will give the world its first look on Saturday during a Hall H presentation at San Diego Comic-Con. With Warner Bros. aiming to win the weekend with Shazam! and Wonder Woman 84 possibly coming with it, the film which will take place underwater for about two-thirds of its run time will be a major player in redefining the canon's future and its own titular hero.

"You can’t sit down and have a beer with Superman, you know what I mean?" Momoa said. This character is in no way a joke or someone to be taken lightly. "I wanted Aquaman definitely to be that guy. He’s blue collar. I mean the whole thing about him, I wanted him blue collar, he’s raised with his dad, worked on bikes, worked on old cars with his father and at a certain age he’s given this gift. He doesn’t know how to deal with it. His dad doesn’t want him in the water, ‘cause he doesn’t want him taken away. The only thing he does know is that his mother was killed. He wants nothing to do with these people. F---ing hates ‘em."

And he's not coming to the party alone. Amber Heard's Mera will make a splash as a strong, witty, and independent hero countering Momoa's sometimes brutish character.

"She’s a leader. She has integrity," Heard said. "Her and Arthur are very different, in fact, that’s part of what causes a lot of, you know, they don’t necessarily fit at the beginning. They’re constantly going back and forth and they earn this relationship with one another throughout the film as they learn to respect each other, given their vastly different approaches to life. Mera, for instance, unlike Arthur, has a very solid constitution, a strong sense of self, who she is, what her role is, what her position is. And the sense of duty and honor that she uses to approach all of the situations of her life is one that I respect and really like, and I admire that."

Whereas many blockbusters have become globetrotting action flicks, Aquaman might be reinventing the concept. Concept art in a packed war room showed off mesmerizing locations, ranging from real world spots like the Boston Aquarium to the underwater kingdom of the Trench, which will offer a dark and possibly terrifying tone in itself to the film. In a market where films offering originality (such as Guardians of the Galaxy in 2014 or a year later) become the most beloved of the year, Aquaman is aiming to make a similar splash.

While elements of Aquaman seems to be comparable to Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, or Indiana Jones (an already successful recipe of roots) in underwater setting, Wan is also crafting something which appears to be wholly original. Perhaps that is why it was so important to the director that he was able to introduce Atlantis to the movie-going world rather than allowing it to have been established in a previous film.

It's a film relying heavily on special effects for underwater armies featuring obedient armored sharks. Still, Aquaman is also built on practical sets and props, including prop guns bearing resemblance to weapons from Halo, along with swords and other weapons given colors and textures to match the film's underwater scheme.

Perhaps most importantly, Aquaman is fully embracing its comic book roots.

"I think that the New 52 version of Aquaman was definitely our touchstone and our starting point," Aquaman producer Peter Safran said. "And even though the film is not a direct adaptation of that, that was certainly, in terms of his origin, who he is; that Tom Curry is his father and Atlanna is his mother, who Orm is, etcetera. That all comes from the New 52. And, there are certainly creature elements from it, from the Trench. So, that was our biggest influence.

Awesome report! It sounds good, and I'm excited! My one quibble was with what Jason said about Superman:

"You can’t sit down and have a beer with Superman, you know what I mean?" Momoa said. This character is in no way a joke or someone to be taken lightly. "I wanted Aquaman definitely to be that guy. He’s blue collar. I mean the whole thing about him, I wanted him blue collar, he’s raised with his dad, worked on bikes, worked on old cars with his father and at a certain age he’s given this gift. He doesn’t know how to deal with it. His dad doesn’t want him in the water, ‘cause he doesn’t want him taken away. The only thing he does know is that his mother was killed. He wants nothing to do with these people. F---ing hates ‘em."

I sort of get where he's coming from, except I'm not clear on whether he's referring to Aquaman the hero persona or just his character overall either as Arthur Curry, Aquaman, or both. However, whether he's talking about DCEU Superman or any Superman, I think it's wrong to say Superman/Clark is not someone who you can drink a beer with.



Given Aquaman the film's admitted New 52 inspiration, it should be understood that the New 52 Superman was presented as quite the working class hero by Grant Morrison who based his take on his impressions of the original Golden Age Superman. With the DCEU, he was a guy who worked on fishing boats, near oil rigs, in bars, and ultimately as a journalist who reported on the injustices inflicted on the forgotten people of Gotham. He, and other versions, are raised on a farm working the land and not always having a lot of money. It's not a big deal or anything that he said that, and like I said I think I know where he's coming from, it just seemed a bit odd to me.

As for the other part of that quote, I love that Aquaman is continuing the tradition of other DCEU parents. Hearing that Arthur's "dad doesn’t want him in the water, ‘cause he doesn’t want him taken away" reminds me so much of Clark's and Diana's parents.
