James Wan To Direct AQUAMAN


Yesterday Variety confirmed that James Wan (The Conjuring, Fast and Furious 7) will indeed be directing 2018's Aquaman, as was rumored.

Variety's story also offered a very bare bones plot: "Aquaman, the King of the Seven Seas and the reluctant ruler of Atlantis, [is] caught between a surface world constantly ravaging the sea and Atlanteans looking to lash out in revolt, but is committed to protecting the entire globe."

I've only seen a couple of Wan's films, so I can't really say I feel one way or the other about this news. There were some other names in the running that I'm glad did not make the cut, so there's that. Plus, with Wan's last film making over one billion dollars worldwide, he pretty much could have picked any project he wanted. The fact that he chose Aquaman suggests (he says, hopefully), that Wan sees something in the character, the material, or both, that makes him think this will be a worthwhile movie.

Aquaman is scheduled for release in July 2018.

Three years is a long time to wait. I'm still hesitantly excited. I guess we'll get an idea of what to expect in BvS and JL. Shame we aren't getting a more friendly Aquaman or Aqualad/Tempest in Legends of Tomorrow or Tean Titans.

I'm quite excited! :) A character and director I love (didn't hurt that James tweeted a Lovecraft quote right afterwards).

Can't wait to see his take on Black Manta.
