James Wan says that Aquaman will have a lighter, fun tone PLUS Jason Momoa and Ray Fisher aren’t troubled by negative BvS reviews

March 28th, 2016 by Marc Comments


With everyone talking about Batman V Superman right now – love it or hate it, it’s great that there’s so much talk and debate about it – and now we’re all starting to look forward to movies like Aquaman.

The director of that movie, James Wan, dropped in to Wondercon this weekend to promote is movie Conjuring 2 but, strangely enough, the topic of Aquaman came up and he had some interesting information about it: “The kind of filmmaker that I am, even my darker horror films generally are still very fun,” he said, “and I think that’s important for me and the kind of films I make.”

Echoing the news earlier this week that Zack and Deborah Snyder both said that the DCU is set to take a lighter, more fun tone, the director added: “I think Aquaman is a character that a lot of people have made fun of over the years, and I just think it’s fun to actually show a really different, cool, badass side to this character. But the same time, let’s not forget to have fun with it.”

There’s much we’d like to discuss with you guys after seeing Batman V Superman but we think it’s too soon, however we do believe that, with the arrival of other characters, we’ll see a shift in the DC movies’ tone over time.

What do you all think?

Meanwhile, Aquaman and Cyborg, Jason Momoa and Ray Fisher, don’t seem too bothered about Batman V Superman’s negative reviews.

Happy Easter from cyborg and aquaman. @rehsifyar Aloha ALI’I

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
