Noam Murro Could Direct Aquaman; Karl Urban Possibly Up For Villain Role


In August, Warner Brothers hired screenwriters Will Beall ("Gangster Squad") and Kurt Johnstad ("300") to work on competing scripts for their upcoming Aquaman solo film, that will star Jason Momoa ("Game Of Thrones") as the King Of The Seven Seas. A few months later, Jeff Nichols' ("Take Shelter") name was cited as a possible director, but that information came from a leaked sony email.

Today, Latino Review is reporting that Noam Murro who directed 300: Rise of an Empire is also being considered to direct Aquaman. Murro makes sense as Zack Snyder produced the sequel to 300, and Warner Bros. is said to have been "impressed" with it.

Latino Review also says Karl Urban ("Dredd") is being eyed for a role in the film, and casting decisions on Aquaman are being delayed while they wait for him to start and finish filming Star Trek 3. They believe Urban is possibly up for the villain role, but had no details as to who that is.

The good news is that we don't have to wait for the solo film to see Jason Momoa's Aquaman/Arthur Curry as he will make his debut in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice in March of 2016.
