In response to a story that was published within The Hollywood Reporter, Aquaman director James Wan had previously promised there will be no “air bubbles for dialogue” in his upcoming superhero which is centered on the King of Atlantis.
During Justice League, there was only one sequence which took place in Atlantis. Here, Zack Snyder decided to create an air bubble around themselves in order to be able to speak. Surely, this would not be something that would be sustainable for an entire film? Here’s what Director James Wan had to say on Twitter:
💪🏋️♀️ Fret not, no “air bubbles for dialogue” in my underwater world. https://t.co/rRbWp2Ejfd

Will this have an effect of the realism of the film? Well, I wanted to see if I could recreate the sounds of the deep. Using Adobe Premiere and Audacity, the aim was to mimic the under water sounds whilst using under water sounds from freesounds.com (Link: https://freesound.org/people/melarancida/sounds/48408/).
I used a number of effects: phaser, flanger, echo and FFT filter solutions.
Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Patrick Wilson as Orm Marius/Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry, Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna, and Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko.
Aquaman will dive in to cinemas on Dec. 21, 2018.
