Earlier this week, it was confirmed that Furious 7 director James Wan will direct Jason Momoa in the standalone Aquaman movie for Warner Bros. and DC. Now, Jason Momoa has taken to social media to express how excited he is to have James Wan on board for this epic DC adventure. In his signature style, Jason Momoa exclaims:
"Game on. Super stoked Aloha AC"
Jason Momoa has good reason to be super stoked! James Wan has an impressive track record, with his previous film Furious 7 grossing $349 million in the states and $1.5 billion worldwide to become the second highest grossing movie of 2015 behind Avengers: Age of Ultron. His first The Conjuring movie pulled in $137 million off a $20 million budget. And he is responsible for co-creating the Saw franchise as well as Insidious. Will he be able to bring the same type of box office glory to Aquaman, helping to create a DC Movie Universe that rivals Marvel? Maybe.
James Wan is currently working on a sequel to The Conjuring, with The Conjuring 2 shooting for New Line this summer. After Aquaman, he will move onto Robotech for Sony. It's very unlikely that he will direct another film in the Fast & Furious franchise, but you never know. How about you? Are you as super stoked as Jason Momoa that James Wan is taking on this DC adventure, or did you have someone else in mind for the King of the Seven Seas?
