Peter Safran, one of the producers for DC’s Aquaman, says that spinoff The Trench could come out before Aquaman 2.
There is no question that Aquaman was a rip-roaring success, pleasing audiences around the world and making bucket loads of cash in the process. WB was so pleased with the film, they are even going to make a spinoff movie called The Trench, which could actually come out before Aquaman 2.
During a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Aquaman producer Peter Safran spoke about The Trench and what it means to DC: “We always, even from the early concept art days, loved the idea of a Trench movie. Then, when audiences embraced it in the movie itself the way they did, particularly that ant farm shot where the camera follows the Trench [creatures] following Arthur and Mera down into the deep, we just knew that we had something very special there and we knew what that movie should be. And consequently, I suspect that that’s one that will come out significantly before Aquaman 2.
“We’ve definitely taken a page from our Conjuring playbook, which is: you’ve got the mothership, which is Aquaman. But there are so many great stories to tell within that universe of itself, that Atlantean universe.”
