The producer of Aquaman has claimed that the upcoming film will set the DC Extended Universe on the right path.
The DCEU is a truly bizarre entity and it’s hard to know exactly where things lie with the franchise. With a mix of big successes like Wonder Woman and disappointments like Justice League, it’s clear not all is as it should be.
Well, according to Warner Bros. president and Chief Content Officer Toby Emmerich, James Wan’s film will be just the remedy the DCEU needs and will be so transformative that it will get the franchise on the right track.
Speaking to EW, Emmerich said Aquaman is “taking you to a different place and imagining the underwater world in a way you haven’t seen before.
“[Aquaman has] got the great action you expect, it’s got a lot of great humor, it works on so many levels … it’s a testament to James’ unique vision. I think it’s an extraordinary step in [the] DC Universe that sets it on the right path.”
Well, fans of the character and DC’s cast of heroes will be hoping this is very much the case. Whether or not Aquaman will be what the doctor ordered, however, will remain to be seen.
Arthur Curry learns that he is the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, and must step forward to lead his people and to be a hero to the world.
Aquaman is directed by James Wan (The Conjuring) and stars Jason Momoa as the titular hero, reprising his role from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, along with Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master, Willem Dafoe as Dr. Vulko, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry, Ludi Lin as Murk, Michael Beach as Jesse Kane, Randall Park as Otis Dhanji as a young Arthur Curry and Graham McTavish in an as-yet-unrevealed role.
