While the Justice League solo adventures of Flash and Batman have had no small amount of trouble getting off the ground, fellow Leaguers Wonder Woman and Aquaman are off and running. Wonder Woman opens in June and director James Wan just announced that the first ever Aquaman live-action movie has just started filming with Jason Momoa playing Arthur Curry, aka Aquaman.
