‘Aquaman’ Writer Says The DC Film Is The First Movie His Kids Can Watch

Aquaman DC Comics Black Manta MeraDuring an interview with Variety, Aquaman co-writer David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick expressed his excitement over his kids being able to watch the anticipated DC film.

David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick co-wrote the screenplay for the DC film with Will Beall, based on a story from the latter writer, Geoff Johns, and director James Wan. Known for writing the Conjuring 2, Johnson-McGoldrick explained that Aquaman is the first film he’s worked on that his young children can watch:

“This is my first movie that my kids can watch and I want to take them. They’re dying to see ‘The Conjuring 2,’ but they’re also eight, nine, and 10, so that’s not happening.”

Johnson-McGoldrick expressed his confidence in the film and James Wan’s ability to connect with audiences, reflecting on his time reading Aquaman comics on the set of The Conjuring 2:

“James Wan knows how to connect with the audience instinctively. In horror movies, you’re sometimes rooting for the monster, but in the ‘Conjuring’ movies, you’re rooting for Ed and Lorraine Warren. You’re pulling for them.”
