Our titular hero, whose alter ego is Arthur Curry, could be seen frolicking at a beach with his beloved Queen Mera, played by Amber Heard. Sporting her signature fiery red hair and green costume, she walked out of the ocean and onto the shore hand-in-hand with Aquaman.
That same day, Momoa took to his Instagram account to announce that the filming on the upcoming film had wrapped. "Stay tuned We fucking wrap. Aquaman today. 114 days. BOOM. Should be a trip Aloha j (sic)," the buffed actor wrote in his post.

Momoa previously dished on the movie, saying that it's an origin story. Speaking to Total Film, he said that "Justice League" would offer "just a snippet of [Aquaman's] life." He explained, "There won't really be a lot of explanation in the ['Justice League'] movie about Aquaman. You get to see why he's a gruff, tough character, and why he's just a bit of a punk sometimes."
"It's the whole origin story for sure," he noted. "You'll see young Arthur and everything. It goes from before he was born... it's the whole mythology of it."
Directed by James Wan from a script written by Will Beall, "Aquaman" is scheduled to open in theaters across the nation on December 21 next year. It follows Arthur Curry who learns that he is the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, and must step forward to lead his people and to be a hero to the world.
The upcoming superhero flick also stars Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Arthur Curry's mom and former queen of Atlantis, Temuera Morrison as his father Thomas Curry, Willem Dafoe as Aquaman's chief scientific adviser Nuidis Vulko and Patrick Wilson as Orm Marius a.k.a. Ocean Master, Aquaman's corrupt half-brother who seeks to take the throne.
In addition, Dolph Lundgren has joined the cast as Nereus, the king of the undersea nation of Xebel, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is cast as Aquaman's enemy David Hyde a.k.a. Black Manta, Michael Beach plays his father Jesse Kane and Ludi Lin is Murk, the leader of the frontline army of Atlantis.
