Aquaman 2 films at WSBL
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is in production at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden, with filming due to run until early autumn.
Jason Momoa reprises his role as the watery warrior, that first appeared in DC Comics in the early 1940s.
James Wan is back in the director’s chair for the sequel feature, having helmed Aquaman in 2018. That film shot largely in Village Roadshow Studios on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia, with some location work in Italy and Tunisia.
Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden recently announced the launch of three new sound stages, including a new virtual production stage. The new facilities total an additional 83,000 sq ft of production space and include V Stage, one of Europe’s largest virtual production stage. Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon was the first project to occupy the shiny new space.
The battle for studio space is well and truly underway, with construction on new facilities, expanded lots and converted spaces taking place all over the UK to try to meet the surge in demand.
