It is fair to say that the DC Extended Universe has been less than impressive so far, with their recent movies disappointing the fans and critics, so it is quite surprising that there is still so much excitement surrounding the upcoming DC projects. However, we are all looking forward to a number of the new projects coming our way, including the planned Aquaman film.
We will get to see Jason Momoa taking on the lead role in the Aquaman movie, while Amber Heard will play the role of his love interest Mera, with fans very excited to see how this relationship will develop on screen. Well, director James Wan has now opened up about the relationship between the two characters and what we can expect to see from them in the film.
Wan explained, "I really want to get the classic action-adventure-romance aspect through that, and I think that’s kind of fun. It starts off initially with them not quite clicking with each other. But then as the story progresses as they learn to try and work together, they get closer and closer. I think those stories are always such a great place for a filmmaker like myself to have fun with my actors."
He added, "I think that dynamic will be really interesting between the two. Amber’s character is super strong, she’s very powerful as well. You don’t wanna mess with her. I think Amber will bring that sense of strength, but at the same time, we also want someone who has a sort of feminine quality to her as well. She’s a bit of a contrast to Momoa, who’s more of a muscular machine almost."
Aquaman is set to hit the big screen on July 27, 2018.
