The feature film is expected to bring more than $150 million in the local economy and provide more than 1,100 jobs.

The blockbuster will be directed by Australia’s own James Wan (Saw) and star Jason Momoa (Games of Thrones) and Willem Dafoe (The Grand Budapest Hotel). 

The Australian Government will invest $22 million in a one-off grant to support Aquaman in Australia.

The production will provide Australian cast and crew with unique opportunities and experiences and have flow-on effects for Australia’s film industry, businesses and service industries.
