With just weeks to go until the premiere of Justice League, the next film in the DC Extended Universe has just reached a huge milestone.

Aquaman, the first solo film to star DC's King of Atlantis, has officially wrapped principal photography, according to director James Wan and stars Jason Momoa (Arthur Curry/Aquaman) and Amber Heard (Mera). All three celebrated the end of shooting with posts on social media over the weekend. (Note: There is some NSFW language in Momoa's post.)

Of course, this is nowhere near the end of the road for Aquaman. As with any massive superhero film like this, there will no doubt be extensive post-production work, and it wouldn't be surprising at all to hear about at least a few reshoots further down the line. Still, this is an exciting moment. A decade ago the idea of an Aquaman movie was just a joke on Entourage, and now it's one big step closer to becoming a reality.

Momoa and Heard will next appear as Aquaman and Mera in Justice League (where Heard will make her DCEU debut) on November 16. Aquaman will hit theaters in a little more than a year, on December 21, 2018.
