Filmmaker James Wan has confirmed that despite being set in the ‘Worlds of DC’ universe, his upcoming “Aquaman” film at Warner Bros. Pictures will not feature any cameos from any of the other “Justice League” heroes.
Talking to EW, he explains his vision was to focus the film’s story entirely on Jason Momoa’s Aquaman’s character and those who surround him:
“I wanted to keep the story to the world of Aquaman and not have to worry about what other characters are doing in their films and how that would affect us. I just thought the simplest way was to keep it clean — keep it simple and let it be an Aquaman story. I told them I understand and respect that it’s part of a bigger universe but at the end of the day I have to tell the story I want to tell, and I want to develop the character as well.”
Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Ludi Lin, Nicole Kidman and Temeura Morrison co-star in the film which opens December 21st.
