Currently, the studios’ only superhero film set for 2018, production is now underway on the Jason Momoa led effort, that also co-stars Nicole Kidman, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Dolph Lundgren. That’s quite a cast, and it’ll be interesting to see what tone Wan strikes, given the serious nature of the DCEU so far. Certainly, a lighter touch wouldn’t be a bad thing, especially for a character that is already a bit goofy to start with.

“Aquaman” opens on December 21, 2018.
