Warner Bros/DC are working on an Aquaman spinoff based around… The Trench UPDATE: James Wan chimes in

February 9th, 2019 by Marc Comments

So, look, we really liked the scene in Aquaman where Aquaman and Mera went up against The Trench, the hideous horde of fish/man monsters that lived beneath the waves.

It was a visually stunning scene… but it never occurred to us we’d like to see a movie based on them.

I mean, we’ve thought we wanted a Man Of Steel 2. We’ve thought we wanted a Cyborg movie. We’ve thought we wanted a Flash movie.

But a Trench movie? No-so-much.

But, hey! Warners are looking at giving us one anyway… never mind the movies the fans have been practically begging for for the last four or more years.

So while Aquaman is still enjoying its success on the far side of a $Billion, it looks like sequel talks are happening already… but it’ll be a while.

But Warners are moving ahead with hiring Noah Gardner and Aidan Fitzgerald to pen a horror-like script revolving around the Trench called, wait for it…. The Trench.

But it’s not going to cost an awful lot of money compared to most comicbook movies so there’s that.

So there you go… we don’t even know if Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill are still Batman and Superman because Warners have yet to actually clarify anything.

But a Trench movie is in the works.

DC/Warners, why do you insist on making it so difficult for the fans?


Now James Wan, director of Aquaman has chimed in… we think he know more than he’s saying. Or is that just us?

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….
