We briefly got to see Jason Momoa’s Aquaman in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but his own standalone movie is still a couple of years away. The project is obviously in early stages of development and likely won’t go into production until next year, but that hasn’t stopped fans from wondering who the titular character will be going up against and which supporting characters will be showing up in the movie.
While doing the press rounds for The Conjuring 2, director James Wan spoke with CinemaBlend about his love of the Aquaman world in the comic books and suggested that we’ll see more than one villain in the movie. Here’s what he told the site:
“I gotta say, one thing I love about the Aquaman world is all the really different, really interesting characters. They are interesting characters, including the villains – I’m not going to tell you which villains I’m going to play with! [laughs] But they’re super cool. They’re very larger than life, but they’re unique.”
The director then went on to talk about why he thinks it took so long to bring the character to the big screen and how excited he is to be working on this project:
“That’s what I’ll speak to – the uniqueness of the Aquaman world. There are so many superhero movies now; I don’t want to make a superhero movie now for the sake of doing it, but there’s something unique to the world of Aquaman. There’s a reason why they’ve never made a movie about this until now, because technology has never allowed us to tackle something this complicated. And so because of that it feels like something different, and that uniqueness is what I’m excited about.”
