Aquaman director James Wan was recently interviewed at the Australians in Film Awards by Bustle, on romance between Amber Heard and Jason Momoa’s characters that will first appear in Justice League and then later in the standalone Aquaman film.
“It starts off initially with them not quite clicking with each other,” says Wan. “But then as the story progresses as they learn to try and work together, they get closer and closer. I think those stories are always such a great place for a filmmaker like myself to have fun with my actors.” Their chemistry is going to be epic. I know it. Because their emotions are not to be messed with, and neither are they.
“I think that dynamic will be really interesting between the two. Amber’s character is super strong, she’s very powerful as well. You don’t wanna mess with her,” Wan says. She’ll definitely hold her own next to Aquaman, but watching love prevail between these two characters will be pretty amazing. “I think Amber will bring that sense of strength, but at the same time, we also want someone who has a sort of feminine quality to her as well. She’s a bit of a contrast to Momoa, who’s more of a muscular machine almost,” says Wan.
