Now that Justice League has been and gone, it’s time to look ahead and up next for Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Films is James Wan’s solo Aquaman film, which is already attracting a lot of rumours.
Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, director James Wan recently addressed the rumour that Aquaman will have three different villains. It seems many fans believe that Aquaman will fight Orm (Patrick Wilson), Black Manta (Abdul-Mateen II), and King Nereus (Dolph Lundgren) in his first solo movie. This isn’t a wild or unrealistic conclusion to jump to, especially when you look at the cast, but Wan wants to assure fans that his Aquaman film only has one villain.
This is what I’ll say: I don’t have three villains. I think that’s ridiculous! I would never go into an origin movie with three villains. We don’t even know the main character let alone the world and its antagonist. I believe in taking baby steps.
I want to introduce Arthur Curry in a much more emotional and powerful way, and introduce Mera played by Amber Heard, and of course there’s Nicole Kidman and Temuera Morrison playing his parents. We know Black Manta is in there, but I will say this: Patrick Wilson is the main antagonist in this film. I wouldn’t necessarily say ‘villain,’ but he’s the antagonist.
Are you excited to see Aquaman fight his half-brother Orm in Wan’s movie? Do you want to see more than one villain? Let me know in the comments section below.
