Jason Momoa and Amber Heard have completed filming on 'Aquaman'.
The 'Game of Thrones' star took to his Instagram account to pay tribute to the cast and crew as production on the hotly-anticipated movie completed in Australia, and he thanked Justice League's Zack Snyder for choosing him for the part.
He posted several snaps of his time shooting the motion picture and added the caption: "SO many beautiful MEMORIES it's been awesome going through my phone.

Momoa's co-star Amber, 31, also took to her Instagram account to reveal she was celebrating the end of filming, and thanked her "aqua hubby" - who plays the titular character - for all the "laughs and madness".
She wrote: "It's a wrap!
"Happy official wrap, aqua hubby!!! Loved working with you @prideofgypsies

Momoa paid tribute to Heard, admitting he is "super proud" of the star.

While Momoa plays Aquaman, the kind of Atlantis, the undersea nation, Heard will star as Queen Mera, who possesses telepathic powers.
Momoa also paid tribute to the stuntmen and women who have worked on the film and admitted he was "baffled" as to why such movie employees don't get much recognition.
He wrote: "My BLOODRIDERS @kim_fardy @ryantarran I wish I could show the world what u have done for me and this movie.
