Known for his craft in directing horror films, director James Wan reportedly revealed in an interview that the upcoming standalone DC superhero film “Aquaman” might be darker that “Batman vs. Superman.”
The man behind the chilling thrillers “Insidious” and “Saw” franchises has shared a glimpse of what people can expect from the anticipated film. Speaking to Empire, he said that it might as well contain some dark elements.
“Look at the sensibility of my movies, from Furious 7 to the horror films. You can extract the kind of movie I might make of Aquaman,” he allegedly told the website, as quoted from Movie Web.
According to the website, its darker theme is already expected. notably, “Aquaman” was introduced in “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” not as a “friendly and goofy superhero,” but as The King of Atlantis, fierce, strong, and feared upon.
Even though the director might be indicating some horror elements in “Aquaman,” he added that he will not forget to add a bit of humor to the film.
“And I think Aquaman is a character who has…You know, been made fun of a lot over the years, and I think it’s kind of fun to show a really different, cool, badass side to this character – but at the same time, let’s not forget to have fun with it.”
He might have given the fans on what to look forward regarding the ambiance of the flick, but Wan did not address the rumours that he will be leaving the production. But his answer suggests that he is not going anywhere.
“Aquaman” features Jason Momoa, who is also rumoured to be the villain on the next “Justice League” film, according to Movie Pilot. Details about the cast of characters, people behind the scenes (apart from the director), and release date will be announced soon.
