Warner Bros. is building up a sequel of Aquaman. However, to get director James Wan back, it will take one specific element: an extraordinary content.
Will We See An Aquaman 2?
In a report, it was revealed that the studio is eager to head back to Atlantis. However, Wan isn’t so anxious to jump once again into work on the huge endeavour which would be Aquaman 2. He is hanging tight for “a seaworthy script” as the first report called it.
Wan is eager to develop the submerged world in which Arthur Curry is the king. The first film appears to have only scratched the surface on world-building with regards to Atlantis. This could be the world associated with whatever is left of the DC film universe but isolated enough to work in an independent form.
Sequel Seems Inevitable
The key for Warner Bros. to landing Wan in charge of their inevitable sequel seems to be further exploring the seven submerged kingdoms, barring other DC Comics heroes, and catching up with a more in-depth look at the heroes and villains presented in the primary film. All things considered, Aquaman left the entryway open not just for all the more family drama between Arthur Curry and his relative Orm but additionally set the phase for some exciting storylines including Black Manta.
What Wan Had To Say:
Speaking to ComicBook.com, Wan had previously opened up about his thoughts on returning to Aquaman’s massive world for a sequel. “I mean, liking the people I work with goes a long way,” Wan said. “That was the reason why I came back when I did Insidious 2. But it’s a weird one for me, because I actually don’t know what I want to do next for the first time in my career.
I felt like Aquaman ticked a lot of boxes for me. I want to do another action movie after Furious 7, I wanted to do a world creation film, and I wanted to do a superhero movie, and Aquaman literally ticked all of those boxes for me. And so right now, I’m in that sort of place of like do I kind of go back and do a smaller movie maybe as my next one, something a bit more intimate. Or if I can do a personal movie, but maybe it’s on a bigger scale. I’m not sure at this point.”
Obviously, this all was expressed by Wan before Aquaman turned into an enormous worldwide hit in the cinema world. Regardless of whether the film’s prosperity will have any influence on his decision stays to be seen.
Wan, in any case, has a background marked by launching franchises and building universes before giving them off. In the wake of making the Saw franchise, he proceeded to helm The Conjuring and its spin-off before passing off the third film and the Annabelle and Nun spinoffs to different producers. For this situation, the Aquaman world may pursue the Conjuring universe’s lead with regards to Wan, except if Warner Bros. figures out how to secure him for a trilogy.
