James Wan Promises A "Fun" AQUAMAN Very Different In Tone To BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

James Wan talks here about his approach to the upcoming Aquaman solo movie, promising an interpretation which is much lighter in tone than you might expect. He also touches on the story.


The biggest criticism levelled at Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - fair or not - is that it isn't any fun. Asked by IGN at WonderCon this weekend whether Aquaman will be taking a similarly dark approach, The Conjuring director James Wan replied: "The kind of filmmaker that I am...even my darker horror films generally are still very fun and I think that's important for me and the kind of films I make."

Now, he obviously wouldn't give too much away about the plot, but it sounds like the movie will follow "The New 52" by addressing the fact that the hero has often been perceived as something of a joke. "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 at the same time, let's not forget to have fun with it."

So, it sounds like fun may now be the name of the game at Warner Bros.! Tell us, what are you guys most looking forward to seeing in Aquaman
