Not only is the Trench area horror in ‘Aquaman’ once used by director James Wan, but season 2 will have more horror details.
James Wan increases Aquaman’s appeal with the horror element
Before James Wan took control of the ‘Aquaman’ franchise, he was best known as a horror film director.
While “scary” or “horror” aren’t the first words that come to mind when you think of the DCEU series, it will be the elements James Wan brings in the ‘Aquaman’ series. ‘Aquaman’ has been a huge hit for DC Films – so much so that the expectations for the sequel are undoubtedly huge. Fans have a lot of questions about what to expect from ‘Aquaman 2’.
On the eve of DC FanDome, when asked if he would consider adding any horror elements to the sequel, he came up with a compelling answer.
“I would say yes. Like the first movie to feature a portion of my horror in relation to the Trench sequence, the sequel is sure to add this one. I think it’s an important part of who I am, and it just naturally appears in these kinds of movies. And especially a movie like Aquaman, where the story takes place in these underwater worlds that can be very frightening. So naturally, my love for horror just means I pay attention to these scenes and try to give them a little more of my signature creepy element. ”
Will James Wan’s horror elements be more in the future?
James Wan became famous thanks to the Saw series and later, demonstrated his horror power with other successful series such as ‘Insidious’ and ‘The Conjuring’. His forte is to combine realistic effects to tell unique, haunting stories.
When Aquaman was released, fans noted that the Trench scene, in which Aquaman and Mera battling some terrifying sea creatures, felt like it belonged to a horror movie rather than a super movie. hero. James Wan even admitted that he enjoyed a lot during the shoot, as it allowed him to take advantage of the genre details he was most familiar with.
So we can fully understand why James Wan is so eager to include that “horror ability” in even his non-horror movies.
It also makes the Aquaman 2’s outlook even more appealing. It’s already been reported that ‘The Trench’ detail will be developed into a spin-off of its own – will it have a relevance for the two ‘Aquaman’ installments? Or will ‘Aquaman 2’ explore even darker territory?
For now, the film is scheduled to hit theaters in December 2022, and some details will hopefully be revealed in the upcoming DC FanDome.
