Director James Wan says ‘Aquaman’ will be fun and badass (video)

Critics complained about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice being too dark, and Aquaman director James Wan wants you to know that his movie will be fun. IGN caught up with Wan at WonderCon this past weekend to talk about the movie.

“The kind of filmmaker that I am, even my darker horror films are still very fun. And I think that’s important for me and the kind of films I make. “Lights Out”, that I’m here to present as well, is a very fun horror film. And I think Aquaman is a character that a lot of people have made fun of over the years, and I just think it’s fun to show a really different, cool, badass side to this character. But at the same time, let’s not forget to have fun with it.”

That’s a lot of fun!

Aquaman, starring Jason Momoa, is scheduled to be released on July 27, 2018. Amber Heard recently confirmed that she’ll be co-starring as Mera after making her first appearance in Justice League: Part One next year.
