James Wan, the director of Aquaman, has a fantasy about directing a horror version of Batman.
Even though director James Wan is currently prepping for the release of Aquaman, this isn’t the only DC superhero property that he has had his eye on.
In the past, Wan has dreamt about stepping behind the camera to make a Batman horror movie and, as a result, making a Batman film quite unlike any other. Speaking to Heroic Hollywood in a recent interview, Wan said:
“In the past, like most people, I loved the idea of directing Batman, but a horror version of Batman. That would be a potential fantasy of mine, but I feel like he’s been done quite a fair bit. I do love the idea of doing an outright scary Batman. I feel like that’d be really cool.”
Batman has certainly been threatening in the past and the Tim Burton films have included horror elements but this idea from Wan would be quite unlike anything we have seen in the past. Do you think it could work? Let us know in the comments below.
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman”, starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime — one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be … a king.”
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, Djimon Hounsou as the Fisherman King, Randall Park as Dr. Stephen Shin, Otis Dhanji as a young Arthur Curry, Julie Andrews as Karathen and Graham McTavish in an as-yet-unrevealed role. It is set for release on December 14th in the UK and December 21st in North America.
