A few months ago Warner & DC announced a huge slate of movies that they’re planning to make over the next few years, from Justice League to Wonder Woman. However a lot of those movies are currently lacking directors, although if Warner gets its way, they’ll fill the Aquaman job with James Wan, according to THR.
The helmer is currently extremely hot after helping Furious 7 to a record-breaking opening weekend. Many had wondered if he was the right man for the job as up to that point he’d only had success in horror, such as Saw, Insidious and The Conjuring, but he’s proven he can handle a massive action franchise.
Aquaman isn’t set for release until 2018, which should give Wan time to make The Conjuring 2 (which is shooting this autumn) and perhaps even another Fast & Furious sequel before his massive superhero movie is released.
Jason Momoa is set to play Aquaman and will first be seen in 2016’s Batman v Superman. It doesn’t appear Wan has signed the deal to direct yet, but it appears one will be sorted soon.
