James Wan Front Runner To Direct Aquaman

Shares

James Wan as we reported before, Wan was opened to directing a possible New Line or Warner Bros. fronted DC film. With his recent work with Dwayne Johnson on Furious 7 and The Rock’s wanting to get Wan onboard to direct another film with him, the idea of Shazam was thrown around, but it looks like Warner Bros. may have a different hero in mind for Wan, the hero? Aquaman.

According to The Hollywood Reporter sources tell them that Warner Bros. is very much looking at James Wan to direct Jason Momoa in the first live action solo film of the King of the Seven Seas.

If true this may cause some scheduling issues as Universal is apparently keen on getting him back for Furious 8, he is already signed up for The Conjuring 2 for New Line and Warner Bros. With Warner Bros. hard at work to get a script out by hiring multiple writers they maybe forced to go elsewhere.

While I was looking forward to him directing Shazam this could be a great project for him. Keep in mind if prior commitments keep this from happening it could still happen that he directs Shazam and that is a win-win situation.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me

    havent seen Furious 7 yet but im hoping the reviews are good based solely on the movie not just sentimentality, he hasnt done much outside the world of horror so I would rather him take over Shazam mainly because i couldnt care less about that character. But i do hope he can prove himself again outside the horror genre. Duncan Jones would be a great pick though.
