idk, He'd probably make a hell of an adaption of The Trench arc.

That's exactly what I was thinking. Whilst I'm not into horror movies, based on the knowledge of his previous works I think he could do well with The Trench.

Yea going out to the deep internets upon reading this information on here, I'm realizing most people had the same idea. :oldyella:

Thank God.

DIRECTOR JAMES WAN PROMISES A FUN "AQUAMAN" FILM

As dark as Warner Bros.' just-released, record-setting "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" is, "Aquaman" director James Wan insists his superhero epic will be more fun than bleak. In fact, though he's known for his horror films, Wan points out that his main goal is always to make them fun, an approach he plans to carry over to his first DC Films project.

"Aquaman is a character that is, you know, a lot of people have made fun of over the years," Wan told IGN at WonderCon. "I just think it’s fun to actually show a really different, cool, badass side to this character, but at the same time, let’s not forget to have fun with it."

Its hard to get pumped for anything DC related atm after BvS. The ONLY thing I am looking forward too is Leto's Joker.

God. As a DC over Marvel fan (in terms of who I resonate with more) while I didn't hate the film I feel really let down and gutted at what has happened.

JL HAS to be good or else I fear for Aquaman/Flash. Sad times.

After seeing his cameo in BvS
Spoiler: show
I really hope they improve on his underwater scenes. He looked freaking amazing but as guy who's supposed to be able to breathe underwater he sure looked like he was drowning

Jason Momoa seems to be a very cool dude, so I like the casting. Plus, seeing him in game of thrones, we know he's capable of being very intense and physical, so that's good.

I'm keeping an open mind with Amber Heard. DC has consistently pleasantly surprised me with its actors, so I'm all in with Amber.

My only concern is, after seeing BvS,
Spoiler: show
the underwater scene looked just weird to me. The hair flowing looked...alright, but he looked so sluggish underwater, like it was all in slow motion.

I know this is a joke, but it's pretty ridiculous when people think that it's hypocrisy or traitorous of Aquaman to eat seafood, since that's the only thing he can eat underwater. Like, what the heck did people ever think he ate down there? Which is why I was glad it was quickly addressed in Aquaman #1 (New 52) :P

[RUMOR]: Black Manta will be the villain of Aquaman's solo feature.

If that means they will save Ocean Master for the sequel(A Throne Of Atlantis adaptation, probably) I'm totally fine with that.

No surprise that we're getting Black Manta. Very happy with that. I wonder who they'll cast for the role, though? :D

Leaks. Posting Aquaman-related below. Grain of salt. Yada, yada. Potential spoilers.

Spoiler: show
  • Aquaman will release August 2018. The villain is Black Manta, though as far as I know he has not been cast yet. The concept sketches do show the full suit which made me very excited. They want Black Manta to be a Darth Vader-esque character, in that his voice and presence is intimidating and terrifying even when he’s not fighting. Aqualad is in it and serves his father for a good chunk of the film. He eventually switches sides and helps Aquaman. There’s a cool fight scene planned where Aquaman and Aqualad fight Black Manta’s army before Aquaman goes off to fight Black Manta at the end.

Patrick Wilson cast as Ocean Master!

Not really the most ideal role for Mr. Wilson in the DCCU, in my opinion. But, another actor from Watchmen is always welcome! :D
I would love to see them taking some inspiration from Nite Owl's costume(at least his mask) for Ocean Master's. That costume is outstanding!
