We had heard that Aquaman was going to shoot in Australia, and last night The Daily Telegraph caught up with Aquaman director James Wan last night at the Australians in Film Awards in West Hollywood where he basically confirmed it.

“I’ve been wanting to bring a movie to Australia for a long time now, and it’s kind of hard because you don’t really dictate where you shoot your films,” Wan admitted. “But now, I’m in a position of power where I can say ‘If you guys want me to do this movie, this is how I’m going to do it’. It means I can make the film I want to make.”

Warner Bros. has famously, for better or worse, altered the final cut of both Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. It sounds like Wan is setting some ground rules early on, and who can blame him? He’s earned the right to make demands after coming off of Furious 7, which made more than $1.5 billion world wide.

If Wan truly is in a position of power and gets to make the film that he wants to make, don’t expect an “Ultimate Edition” or “Extended Cut” of Aquaman to hit Blu-ray.
