Two Different Aquaman Feature Scripts Are in the Works!

SuperHeroHype

Aug 12, 2014

Warner Bros. has dueling scripts for a Aquaman feature film currently in the works. The Hollywood Reporter today brings word that Will Beall (Gangster Squad) is working on one version while Kurt Johnstad (300: Rise of an Empire) is doing another. The plan is said to be to develop both scripts in tandem until a decision can be made as to which version will ultimately head to the big screen.

Aquaman’s first comic book appearance was in 1941′s “More Fun Comics” #73. Created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger, Aquaman went on to become a founding member of the Justice League of America two decades later. Although the character has never before made it to the big screen, Jason Momoa is all but confirmed to appear as Aquaman in 2016′s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Never before seen on the big screen, Aquaman’s sole live-action appearance was as a teen on the WB’s “Smallville”. The character was planned for a spinoff series, “Mercy Reef,” but the property never made it beyond the pilot stage.

Furious 7 Helmer James Wan Targets Aquaman!

SuperHeroHype

Apr 10, 2015

With his latest, Furious 7, about to cross over the $500 million mark at the worldwide box office, The Conjuring‘s James Wan may be getting ready to take a step into the DC Universe. The Hollywood Reporter has just revealed that Wan is in talks to helm the Jason Momoa-led Aquaman solo film!

Planned for a July 27, 2018 release, Aquaman is currently being developed as two separate screenplays, one by Will Beall (Gangster Squad) and another by Kurt Johnstad (300: Rise of an Empire).

Wan’s next big screen project is Warner Bros. Pictures’ The Conjuring 2, set for a June 10, 2016 release. He’s not yet a lock for Aquaman, however, as the trade cautions that his contract on the Fast and the Furious franchise may force him to return for an eighth big screen adventure.

Long before his solo film, however, Momoa’s Aquaman will make his big screen debut in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, set to hit the big screen March 25, 2016. It’s also a near certainty that he’ll be back for Justice League: Part One, arriving November 10, 2017. Aquaman then hits the following summer with Justice League: Part Two following on June 14, 2019.

SuperHeroHype

Jun 03, 2015

Warner Bros. Pictures has just announced that director James Wan (Furious Seven, The Conjuring) is officially set to take the helm of the studio’s upcoming Aquaman feature film! Jason Momoa (“Game of Thrones”) is starring as the sea-dwelling superhero. The announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, Warner Bros. Pictures.

“We’ve been so lucky to have worked with James, first on New Line’s ‘The Conjuring’ and now on their upcoming ‘The Conjuring 2,'” says Silverman, “and are thrilled to have him on board as we continue to expand our DC slate. The ‘Aquaman’ film will be a major tentpole picture for us and James’s span of work has proven him able to take on any manner of project, bringing his incredible creative talent and unique voice to the material.”

Wan will also be supervising the script by Kurt Johnstad (300, 300: Rise of an Empire). Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder and Zack Snyder will serve as producers.

“James is not only a great storyteller but can make action truly explode on the big screen,” says Roven, “and Jason has a dynamic presence that commands your attention. Together, they will bring an undeniable vitality and energy to this character as he headlines his first feature film.”

The character’s first comic book appearance was in 1941’s “More Fun Comics” #73. Created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger, Aquaman went on to become a founding member of the Justice League of America two decades later. Until now, the character has never made it to the big screen. Aquaman’s sole live-action appearance was as a teen on the WB’s “Smallville.” The character was planned for a spinoff series, “Mercy Reef,” but the property never made it beyond the pilot stage.

Before appearing in his solo film, Momoa’s Aquaman will make his big screen debut in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, set to hit theaters on March 25, 2016. It’s also a near certainty that he’ll be back for Justice League: Part One, arriving November 10, 2017. Aquaman then hits the following summer with Justice League: Part Two following on June 14, 2019.

Amber Heard Talks Mera Costume in Aquaman

SuperHeroHype

Mar 17, 2016

In January, Warner Bros. Pictures confirmed that Amber Heard was joining the DC Cinematic Universe, and now the actress has talked more about her Mera costume. Her character will first appear in Justice League: Part One on November 10, 2017 and then will join Jason Momoa in the James Wan-directed Aquaman, coming to theaters on July 27, 2018.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight about the Mera costume, Heard said: “It’s interesting. It’s like, half suit of armor, half scales. It’s strange… We’re in the process of building it now, so it’s coming along.”

Mera is Aquaman’s love interest and eventual Queen of Atlantis, who first appeared in the comics in 1963.

Jason Momoa will be headlining the Aquaman feature film, which is based on the classic DC Comics sea dwelling superhero.

The studio is reportedly developing two scripts for the Aquaman solo movie simultaneously, with Kurt Johnstad (300, 300: Rise of an Empire) penning one and David Leslie Johnson (Wrath of the Titans, The Conjuring 2) the other. Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder and Zack Snyder are serving as producers.
