Aquaman director James Wan in an exclusive interview with Entertainment Weekly, went on to debunk a rumor regarding the villains in the movie.
There was a suppose rumor floating around that stated they’ll be three villains in the movie, in which Wan was quick to call ridiculous, as the film is an origin movie and he would never go into an origin story with three villains.
“This is what I’ll say: I don’t have three villains, I think that’s ridiculous! I would never go into an origin movie with three villains. We don’t even know the main character let alone the world and its antagonist. I believe in taking baby steps.
I want to introduce Arthur Curry in a much more emotional and powerful way, and introduce Mera played by Amber Heard, and of course there’s Nicole Kidman and Temuera Morrison playing his parents,” the Furious 7 director added. “We know Black Manta is in there, but I will say this: Patrick Wilson is the main antagonist in this film. I wouldn’t necessarily say ‘villain,’ but he’s the antagonist.”
Aquaman is set to release on December 21, 2018.
