James Wan On How Much Influence Zack Snyder Has Over The Solo Aquaman Movie

James Wan On How Much Influence Zack Snyder Has Over The Solo Aquaman Movie

James Wan is directing Jason Momoa's solo Aquaman feature but the character first appears in awn of Justice and factors heavily into the two-part Justice League film, three movie directed by Zack Snyder.

It's very clear that Zack Snyder is in the driver's seat, in terms of defining the overarching story unfolding across the DC Extended Universe.  But just how much control does he have over the standalone films?  James Wan was asked this very question at this past weekend's WonderCon about his standalone Aquaman feature and gave an intriguing answer.

"Well, I think the story that I would like to tell is still at the end of the day my story. And that’s what’s cool with Zack, is that he’s actually very respectful of that. He’s actually helping me out in some ways with certain things that he’s doing with his [films] so that I can have better groundwork with the standalone Aquaman story."

Wan's comments would seemingly indicate that, yes, there are concessions that he has to make in order to conform to the overarching direction the DCEU, however he's mostly telling a story of his own making.   Do you want an Aquaman film in the same tone and visual style as Snyder's Batman v Superman, or are you hoping for a completely diffrent style for Arthur Curry's solo feature?
