Director James Wan, who will be directing the Aquaman solo film, has assured fans that his film will follow a different path as compared to Justice League (JL). The characters in the film, as per Wan will not use air bubbles to communicate underwater unlike JL.
Justice League has hit the theaters to not-so-good reviews, and the audience is especially critical of the fact that the newly introduced DC characters (Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash) did not get quality screen time. In fact, most people are of the opinion that Aquaman’s character in particular lacked depth.
Justice League was the first time that superhero comic book character Aquaman was brought to life. Jason Momoa’s depiction of the Atlantic man has got people asking for more. The Warner Bros. and director Joss Whedon chose to focus mainly on the Justice League’s three big heroes – Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. James Wan, who has films like The Conjuring, Insidious and Furious 7 to his credit, has assured fans that Aquaman will take an altogether different route.
One scene in Justice League shows Aquaman interacting with Hera (Amber Heard) in an underwater scene. Hera creates a giant air bubble around the two to facilitate interaction. Considering that one of the most famous talents of Aquaman is his ability to speak to animals in the ocean, fans wanted to know how that would be conveyed in the film. Fans felt cheated since there was no actual underwater talking. That moment seemed to indicate how characters would communicate underwater in Aquaman’s solo film. James Wan thought it wise to address this concern and tweeted, “Fret not, no “air bubbles for dialogue” in my underwater world.”
A significant portion of Aquaman was cut in JL. Speaking to Game Spot about one of the deleted scenes, Jason Momoa had said, “[Zack Snyder and I] were kind of trying to establish that he was taken down there as a boy, and he was an outcast, he was a half-breed, and he was built up as a young boy, because he was fed all these ideas by Vulko–that he was the rightful king. And he gets down there, and he’s a half breed, he’s impure, and I’m just made to feel like I’m this disease. So after that, I was like, ‘f*** you, f*** you, I’m on my own.”
Aquaman is scheduled to release on December 21, 2018.
