During an interview with Collider, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice producer Charles Roven has given a brief update on the Aquaman movie, revealing that it is still “very early days” on development on the Jason Momoa-headlined solo movie.
“We’re very early days. We’re just starting with the screenplay. He’s making The Conjuring 2 now, so he’s had his hand in the creation of let’s just call it a working document from which to write. But he’s directing that film [and] he’s got his hand ever so slightly in the development, but he’s really gonna throw himself into it after he finishes shooting Conjuring 2. And we’re planning on it being his film after Conjuring 2. He is a serious Aquaman fan.”
Meanwhile, despite being early in development, Joblo has popped up with a new rumour, claiming that the villain of the piece will be Ocean Master, a.k.a. Orm Marius, the half-brother of Aquaman. Although the report does stress a handy “early in development so plans can change” get-out clause, so this could be pure speculation…
Aquaman is slated for release in July 2018.
