DC FanDome was extraordinarily quick on Aquaman 2 information throughout a panel devoted to the highest-grossing DCEU movie to date, however director James Wan did provide one curious bit of data. The Conjuring filmmaker reunited along with his Aquaman star Patrick Wilson to reminisce in regards to the making of the DC film, which shocked just about everybody by grossing over $1 billion – greater than Warner Bros.’ higher-profile DCEU movies like Man of Metal and Batman v Superman: Daybreak of Justice.
Through the course of their dialog, they touched briefly on the in-development Aquaman 2, and Wan mentioned the sequel might be a bit extra critical than the primary movie:
“The second one is a little bit more serious, a little bit more relevant to the world we’re living in today. That’s where it wants to go.”
That’s actually a little bit of a bummer. Those that actually liked Aquaman liked it for its unabashed goofiness. It took a tough left flip away from Zack Snyder’s lethal critical tone and leaned into how ridiculous a personality like Aquaman is. I imply, how does one craft a scene through which individuals battle whereas driving seahorses and never acknowledge how foolish that’s?
Wilson famous that he hopes to see extra new worlds within the sequel, and Wan assured him he would, so a minimum of the aesthetic of Aquaman 2 might be a bit totally different.
Jason Momoa was curiously absent from the panel (he didn’t seem through the Snyder Minimize panel both), however he’s connected to return for the follow-up. Warner Bros. has set a December 2022 launch date for the film, however Wan was in no rush to return. Certainly, he went off and made a brand new horror film referred to as Malignant after Aquaman’s large blockbuster success, and it sounds as if he’s taking his time to craft a worthwhile follow-up. Let’s simply hope it’s not too critical.
