CinemaCon and ComicCon are two different events? If so, I hope Dolph will be there.

It's not up to Sly to make the shooting schedule and it can be quite complex with all the parameters and imperatives. Maybe Warner didn't even ask Dolph to be there for this one since they had the leads, but he might show up at Comic Con which is a much bigger event as far as I know.

YES, and Comic Con will be held in mid-late July in San Diego.

Jumping on Jox's being happier to see Dolph in Aquaman than in Deadpool : I agree and I'll go beyond that by saying that I rather see Dolph being part of the "James Wan Family" than David Leitch's one (even if his team looks good too). Dolph is now 60, and he'll be more realistic and at his place in horror or thrillers made by Mike Mendez and other people surrounding James Wan (Darren Lynn Bousman ? Leigh Whanell ?) than high octane action packed action film made by Leitch and his fellas (even if these ones, like John Wick and Atomic Blonde, are kinda good).

'Upgrade' Director Leigh Whannell on Box Office Pressures and Visiting 'Aquaman' Set
https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat- ... en-1116285
You've visited the set of Aquaman. When you saw the resources your old friend James Wan had on that film, did it make you want to consider doing something on that scale?

Absolutely. The size and scope of it was truly astounding. I've been on the set of a couple of big movies before, and I remember having a really small three-line role in The Matrix: Reloaded. That was my little walk-on role in a giant movie. What James was doing with Aquaman was another level. I turned up on my first day and walked into a room and it was a soundstage the size of an aircraft hangar, and it was covered with this blue-screen. This 60-ft tall blue screen, and in the middle of the soundstage was this one tiny set. And I was bowled over. But then I see James, and he's just treating it like he did back when we did Saw. He's looking at the monitor, he's trying to work out his shot. It kind of did open my eyes that no matter how much money you have, it still just boils down to telling a story through shots and through characters and through dialogue. I would say it actually did make me curious, if I ever got the opportunity, just to paint on that big of a canvas would be amazing. And I think the only thing that would make me not want to do it would be if there were so many chefs in the kitchen. ... I do love the creative freedom of low-budget films, so that would be the thing I would miss, would be the creative freedom. But certainly, it does sound fun to say, "hey, can we crash a helicopter tomorrow?" and the answer is "yeah, sure."

DC team breaks silence on James Wan's Aquaman: 'It's extraordinary'
http://ew.com/movies/2018/06/12/james-wan-dc-aquaman/

James Hibberd, June 12, 2018

The team at Warners Bros. and DC are really confident that their next big release, Aquaman, is going to swim not sink.

EW exclusively spoke to the film’s producers and the studio’s executive brass about the next title in the DC Extended Universe coming Dec. 21. The film starring former Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa as the half-Atlantean, half-human superhero has been shrouded in secrecy and has only publicly released a couple photos so far, but there are hints that a trailer could be coming soon. The movie represents the first superhero film by director James Wan, best known for his work on The Conjuring and Insidious films, yet also tackled Furious 7 — the top-grossing film of the Fast & Furious franchise.

“James has done an incredible job with his team,” says Warner Bros. chief Toby Emmerich. “The film is taking you to a different place and imagining the underwater world in a way you haven’t seen before.”

One of the film’s producers, Peter Safran, tells us the film has, “got the great action you expect, it’s got a lot of great humor, it works on so many levels … it’s a testament to James’ unique vision. I think it’s an extraordinary step in DC Universe that sets it on the right path.”

The storyline is largely being kept under wraps, but it’s expected to introduce Arthur Curry as a surface-dwelling outcast who battles his half-brother King Orm (Patrick Wilson) over the fate of Atlantis. Expect to see sights such as the seven undersea kingdoms, giant octopi and Atlanteans riding great white sharks into battle.

DC Entertainment president Geoff Johns (who recently announced he was exiting the company for a writing and producing deal) knows plenty about Aquaman, having penned some of the comics in addition to co-writing the story for the standalone film.

“The underwater stuff has never been executed like this before,” Johns tells us. “The visual effects shots coming in are just beautiful. James can switch modes from horror to big bright colorful action to really emotional scenes. He’s so able to hit all these different genres.”

That description, “big bright colorful,” is telling. We’re hearing Aquaman is visually more punchy and with more humor than some of the previous DC films directed by Zack Synder that were known for a more grim aesthetic. The last, Justice League, ended up disappointing at the box office despite grossing a pretty sizeable $658 million. DC also has 2019’s Wonder Woman 2, a stand-alone Joker movie with Jared Leto reprising his Suicide Squad role, another presumed Justice League film and possibly a The Flash stand-alone in the works.

AQUAMAN could turn out REALLY BIG...

I recently got to see a good amount of footage of the film at CinemaCon a couple months ago and it was impressive! It has the epic scope of The Lord of the Rings, but the whole thing is set underwater and it looked stunning.
