James Wan Describes ‘Aquaman’ as Like ‘Star Wars Underwater’
James Wan’s Aquaman hasn’t been plagued with any weird rumors or high-profile exits so far, and actually seems to be going, well, swimmingly. Wan has described the shoot as “super complicated,” even out of the water, but Aquaman seems to be in a league of its own. Which may be because it’s in practically a different world from the rest of the DCEU — or, as Wan apparently described it on set, “Star Wars underwater.”

Wan has had an enormous influence on the genre for the last decade, as one of the creators of the Saw, Insidious, and Conjuring series. Though he’s branched out his directorial pursuits (he made the tremendous Furious 7 and is now hard at work under the sea on Aquaman), he’s also lending a creative hand on the ongoing universification of The Conjuring, which now has now less than three parallel spinoff series in various stages of production at Warner Bros.

There are a few standouts in the Justice League trailer (aside from Zack Snyder’s glaring obsession with making audiences feel like they’re trapped in a 2001 NuMetal music video): Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen / The Flash, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, and Jason Momoa’s Aquaman — all of whom inject the trailer with enough personality to make up for Ben Affleck’s affectless Batman. Momoa’s humorously gruff take on Aquaman is a pleasant surprise, and it’s really piqued our interest in his upcoming solo film from director James Wan, which has officially begun production.
