Deadline reports that Furious 7 director James Wan is now confimed to direct Aquaman. The movie, due out in 2017, will feature Jason Momoa in the title role after his debut in 2016's Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
“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,” said Warner Bros. Pictures President Greg Silverman.
According to Deadline, Aquaman will feature aquatic hero as a "reluctant ruler of Atlantis" who is "caught between a surface world ravaging the sea, and the Atlanteans who are looking to lash out in revolt."
In addition to that, The Hollywood Reporter states that Wan has also signed on to direct Sony's live-action adaptation of the anime series Robotech.
Wan is currently filming The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Potlergeist for release June 10, 2016.
Aquaman is scheduled for release July 27, 2018.
