It’s pretty incredible that we have never had an Aquaman movie. He’s a pretty big character in the DC Universe, yet he has always been overshadowed by the other members of the Justice League.
Jason Mamoa and director James Wan are looking to change that.
Recently James Wan sat down for an interview and he had a few interesting things to say about the King of Atlantis’ solo film.
“I gotta say, one thing I love about the Aquaman world is all the really different, really interesting characters. They are interesting characters, including the villains – I’m not going to tell you which villains I’m going to play with! [laughs] But they’re super cool. They’re very larger than life, but they’re unique.”
Black Manta and Ocean Master are definitely the first two villains that come to mind.
James Wan also went on to explain his reasoning for why he wants to make this film and also why he believes this is going to be an unique experience for moviegoers.
“That’s what I’ll speak to – the uniqueness of the Aquaman world. There are so many superhero movies now; I don’t want to make a superhero movie now for the sake of doing it, but there’s something unique to the world of Aquaman. There’s a reason why they’ve never made a movie about this until now, because technology has never allowed us to tackle something this complicated. And so because of that it feels like something different, and that uniqueness is what I’m excited about.”
We had to laugh at his statement because you may or may not know this, but our father is a huge Aquaman fan. He has been saying for years that the world wasn’t ready for the awesomeness of an Aquaman movie until now because the film had to have the latest technology to really make it special.
We’re looking forward to seeing more of Aquaman and we can’t for the Aquaman solo movie.
