Between the dour Man Of Steel, the even dourer Batman V. Superman, and the dour-but-desperate-to-be-fun Suicide Squad, the general glumness of the DC Extended Universe has become an easy source of mockery these days. And while it’s a little unclear whether the upcoming Wonder Woman, Justice League, and Flash movies will be more of the same, there’s one DC superhero franchise that definitely plans to set itself apart: Aquaman.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, director James Wan reveals that he plans to turn his film into a rollicking good time. “I kind of don’t want to give too much away but know this,” he explained, “The spirit that I’m going for is like a classic sort of swashbuckling action adventure, sort of high seas adventure story. It’s ultimately a quest story in the spirit of Raiders Of The Lost Ark meets Romancing The Stone.”

At this rate, there will come a time when a majority of television series will be reboots, sequels, or spin-offs of hit movies. Listing all the series that are in production or have been announced that are based on films would take the entire article. That being said, Variety has one more to add to the list, reporting that ABC is working on a TV series based on the Will Smith 1998 film “Enemy of the State.”
The series is not a remake of the film, instead it’s a true blue sequel.

What sort of movie will Aquaman prove to be? The individual elements sound intriguing. Jason Momoa proved his action credentials on TV's Game of Thrones as well as the new version of Conan the Barbarian, so he sounds like a splendid selection to be Aquaman. Amber Heard has appeared in a variety of comic and dramatic roles over her career and is a great choice as Mera, Queen of Atlantis, while the wonderfully versatile Willem Dafoe will undoubtedly bring some of his trademark edge to Vulko, an advisor to Aquaman. But what does director James Wan have in mind? Wan, of course, is best known as the director of horror movies like Insidious and The Conjuring 2. Yet he also made the terrific crime thriller Death Sentence as well as the blockbuster action sequel Furious 7. When...

It’s been over a year since filmmaker James Wan officially signed on to direct Aquaman, but we still don’t know much about the DC standalone film. Wan is keeping the details very close to the vest but has recently revealed that Jason Momoa‘s upcoming DC film Aquaman will be a quest story in the spirit […]

A couple of weeks ago Zack Snyder gave us our first look at Amber Heard’s Mera, Queen of Atlantis, from next year’s Justice League movie, and now Aquaman director James Wan has briefly shared his thoughts on the image, as well as the pairing of Heard and Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, and the tone of the 2018 solo movie.
“I think Amber and Jason Momoa, in their moments in Justice League, (are) going to give the rest of the world a flavor of what their own standalone movie could be,” Wan told Entertainment Tonight (via Batman-News). “And that is just scratching the surface of what I plan to do.”
Asked about the solo movie, Wan responded that: ““I kind of don’t want to give too much away but know this: The spirit that I’m going for is like a classic sort of swashbuckling action adventure, sort of high seas adventure story. »

A frequent topic this year has been the way Warner Bros- a studio that prides itself on being filmmaker-driven- has been somewhat unkind to its filmmakers lately. With Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, there was all that controversy that erupted when the studio forced director Zack Snyder to cut 30 minutes off of the film's running time which resulted in a theatrical cut that many people found to be very lacking. Then there were all of the reports that came out post-Suicide Squad, that revealed that director David Ayer's film was chopped up into multiple different variations and that he didn't have the final say over what made it into the theatrical cut.
This brings us to some new comments from James Wan, who'll be directing Aquaman for Warner Bros- a film that is part of the same DC Extended Universe franchise as the aforementioned movies. During a recent interview, »

As the DC cinematic universe continues to expand and find a tone which brings out the very best of its pantheon of characters, details are emerging about future chapters in the saga. One of the most intriguing of the new heroes on the horizon is Aquaman. We have seen Jason Momoa in his guise as […]

One of the big questions DC Films has to grapple with is how they’ll pivot from the Very Serious and Very Important attitude of “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice” and “Suicide Squad,” to something a bit more….fun. Certainly, Geoff Johns and co. have been promising sunnier days are ahead, and if things go the way James Wan wants them to, “Aquaman” is aiming to go big on adventure while staying light on its feet, tonally speaking.

“Aquaman” director James Wan won’t say much about Jason Momoa‘s upcoming DC film, except that it will be made in the spirit of an “Indiana Jones” film. “I kind of don’t want to give too much away, but know this: The spirit that I’m going for is like a classic sort of swashbuckling action adventure, sort of high seas adventure story,” Wan told Entertainment Tonight. “It’s a quest story potentially in the spirit of ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ meets ‘Romancing the Stone.'” “Aquaman,” which will hit theaters on July 27, 2018, also stars Amber Heard as Mera, »

Upon taking the reins on Warner’s solo Aquaman movie, horror maestro James Wan had but one goal in mind: to alter public perception so that Arthur Curry is no longer ridiculed as a joke among the superhero world.
A dramatic overhaul for the King of the Seven was needed, then, and although we’ve yet to clock eyes on any footage from Wan’s solo effort, thanks to that enticing Justice League sizzle reel, Jason Momoa has all but silenced critics claiming that the former Game of Thrones actor wasn’t suited to the lush underwater world of Atlantis. We’ll see both Momoa and Amber Heard (Mera) in action late next year thanks to Zack Snyder’s ensemble piece, and while chatting to Entertainment Tonight, Wan teased that fans will get a very small taste of Aquaman through Justice League in 2017.

Last week, Warner Bros. unveiled the first look at Amber Heard in her full costume as Mera in the highly-anticipated Justice League movie, which recently wrapped production. After that movie hits theaters on November 17, 2017, Mera will return alongside Jason Momoa in the highly-anticipated Aquaman, which arrives on July 27, 2018. Aquaman director James Wan recently spoke about the Mera first look, teasing that their appearance in Justice League is just the beginning. Here's what he had to say below.
"I think Amber and Jason Momoa, in their moments in Justice League, [are] going to give the rest of the world a flavor of what their own standalone movie could be. And that is just scratching the surface of what I plan to do."
"I kind of don't want to give too much away but know this: The spirit that I'm going for is like a classic sort of swashbuckling action adventure, sort of high seas adventure story. It's ultimately a quest story in the spirit of Raiders of the Lost Ark meets Romancing the Stone."
Wan had this to say about that:

It's well known that Atlanteans will play an important role in Zack Snyder's Justice League, and it's safe to assume that Aquaman director James Wan will have a hand in shaping Atlantis for the film. The Aquaman cast is already coming together with Jason Momoa as the titular hero, Amber Heard as Queen Mera, and Willem Dafoe as Vulko, and according to Wan, fans will get a brief taste of what the King of Atlantis' standalone film will be like in Justice League. "I think Amber and Jason Momoa, in their moments in Justice League, [are] going to give the rest of the world a flavor of what their own standalone movie could be," said Wan. "And that is just scratching the surface of what I plan to do." When asked about the tone of the 2018 film, Wan went on to reveal that Aquaman would be heading on a high »
In the grand scheme of 2016’s mainstream horror scene, Ouija: Origin Of Evil certainly bolsters the argument that we’re having one hell of a year – even if it’s not at the top. Director Mike Flanagan does what he does best by summoning a comfortable (unnerving), safe (tormenting) haunter that’s certainly better than Hasbro’s previous occult killer, but that doesn’t stop a familiar sense of “I’ve seen this before” from seeping in. You’ll scream at telegraphed scares, indulge in grainy 60s chic and learn where the evil began (all you rabid Ouija fans, wherever you are). Maybe just tone down the cheap jumps next time? Like, well below 11?
Flanagan’s prequel to last year’s Ouija introduces viewers to the famous board game’s promised curse. Another dopey family (the Zanders) ignores ominous warnings included with their Ouija game, and their daughter Doris (Lulu Wilson) pays the price. »

All hail the queen of Atlantis!
Concept art for the character, as well as a still photo of Heard in full Atlantean gear, was shared by IGN on Wednesday. In the still photo, the outfit’s green scales and ornate crown come to life from the illustration. Mera’s look was created by costume designer Michael Wilkinson and illustrator Ian Joyner.

Warner Bros. has unveiled the first look at Amber Heard as Mera in the highly-anticipated superhero ensemble Justice League, which is still in production and set for release on November 17, 2017. The studio also released several concept art images and a time-lapsed video that shows how the costume design evolved into what will be seen on the big screen next fall. We don't know too much about how she fits into the story yet, but it is rumored she will merely be introduced in Justice League before taking on a much larger role in the stand alone Aquaman movie.
This photo also essentially shoots down rumors that Amber Heard was going to be fired from Justice League, reportedly because she had lost too much weight due to stress over her divorce proceedings with Johnny Depp. Her reps claimed that the studio canceled a costume fitting in London because producers didn't think she was "camera-ready, »
With Justice League wrapping production in the UK just last week, IGN got an exclusive first look at Amber Heard’s Mera, wife of Jason Mamoa’s Atlantean King Aquaman and Queen of Atlantis. It is rumoured that Mera will play a supporting role in the film before getting a much more prominent role in Aquaman, directed by James Wan.
The production still of Heard in full costume was taken by director Zack Snyder himself. Snyder also provided a couple pieces of concept art by Justice League‘s costume designer Michael Wilkinson. Check out the images below.
