Last summer we learned that Will Beall would be writing the script for Aquaman, based on a detailed treatment from director James Wan and DC’s Geoff Johns. Beall also wrote a very early draft for Justice League, which ended up being rewritten by Batman v Superman writer Chris Terrio. So when Collider caught up with Beall for a recent interview, he had a lot say about the tone of the upcoming DC movies.
“It’s going to be fun, it’s going to be really fun,” Beall said of Aquaman. “What we’ve come up with and James [Wan] especially — he has a really clear idea of the tone he’s going to have, and I think Aquaman is one that’s going to blow people’s minds, not just visually, but I think the story and the scope of it is really great.”
Beall then commented on the tone of Justice League, noting that it’s going to be a lot more “fun” than Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
“I think Justice League again is, what you’re going to see — I hope I’m not going to get in trouble for saying this — but it’s much more fun, much poppier, than … I haven’t seen Wonder Woman yet, but Batman vs Superman was a little more somber. But Justice League is a lot more fun. And I think that feels to me like the direction those movies are heading now.”
