Jason Momoa's Aquaman made his feature debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but director James Wan has a very different plan for his 2018 solo film.
"I would love to capture the fun spirit of high-sea adventures, treasure hunts, sea monsters," Wan told the Los Angeles Times. "That’s the spirit that I’m going for. Swashbuckling."
Wan goes on to re-itterating previous statements on how Warner Bros is a more "filmmaker-driven studio," allowing him, Zack Snyder and others to make their mark on their individual films.
"Well, like Zack said, from Day One, Warner has always said to me that we are a filmmaker-driven studio and we want each of the DC characters to have the stamp and the trademark of the filmmakers that they’ve picked to come shepherd it," said Wan. "As I’ve always said, whether it’s at Marvel or at DC, they have that sandbox. That sandbox is in place. So you have to come in there and play within their sandbox. But the key here is to build your own sandcastle. And make that sandcastle yours."
Wan said it was "too early" to say what his "sandcastle" looks like.
Aquaman is scheduled for release July 27, 2018.
