There’s a good chance that Aquaman is going to be the last film from the current version of the DCEU and the only reason for that is that it’s already been shot. With the luke warm reaction that Justice League has gotten from fans and critics, the PR machine is out to make sure fans know that the underwater adventure is not going to be anything like the film where he first appeared.
Here’s what James Wan had to say about the look and feel of the new film:
“It’s going to look very different, it will feel very different — aesthetically, tonally, story-wise — it’s my own take. t’s a much more a traditional action-adventure quest movie.”
Mamoa, for his part, had this to say:
“Justice League was only a weekend in Arthur Curry’s life. This is a totally different beast. In Aquaman, you see when his parents met and what happened to hem. Then the little boy being raised and finding his powers and going through that and never being accepted on either side. And then becoming this man who puts up all these walls. You just slowly see this man harden up and be completely reluctant wanting to be king and not knowing what to do with these powers he has. I think James Wan just killed it.”
