Aquaman is getting a sequel and a spin-off movie, and its writer has been updating on the current position of both.
Plans are ongoing for a second Aquaman film, starring Jason Momoa wearing not many clothes. The first movie grossed over $1bn at the global box office, in spite of middling reviews. And writer David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick is currently hard at work on the screenplay for Aquaman 2.
Over on his social media account – that you can find here – he’s been answering a question or two about the sequel and its planned spin-off movie (centring around the monstrous The Trench).
The sequel first, he said that “we’re not taking any one particular comic book story and adapting it, but if you want to know the vibe we’re going for, pick up pretty much any Silver Age story featuring Black Manta”. He added that he’s been texting James Wan about the current draft of the script and that “I think you’re gonna dig it”.
He also confirmed that the spin-off movie “theoretically” will be taking place “between 1 and 2. But some pieces of this are still being worked out”.
Filming on either movie isn’t expect to start until next year, so there’s lots of time to get the screenplays in shape. More as we hear it.
