Zack Snyder breaks down Aquaman footage from ‘Justice League’

Last week director Zack Snyder celebrated his birthday by sharing some underwater footage of Aquaman. The footage from the editing bay on ‘Justice League’ gave fans their first look at actor Jason Momoa ‘underwater’.

Many understood the footage to be a fully CG recreation of the actor. Others were intrigued to know how the film would pull off underwater sequences. Now Snyder has taken to social media again to discuss the process.

Via is Vero account Snyder posted a photo of Momoa in a green screen rig filming the same sequence. Captioning the photo he said:

People are wondering whether he was CG or not. He’s not… hair and environment CG otherwise all Jason.

It will be interesting to see if the same techniques are used on the ‘Aquaman’ solo film shoot.
