Zack Snyder got the first crack at bringing the half-human/half-Atlantean superhero (played by Jason Momoa) to life on the big screen in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and will further develop him in Justice League. Aquaman will then appear in his own solo film, which will be directed by James Wan.
Since the Aquaman story reportedly picks up where it leaves off in Justice League, Wan is communicating with Snyder on how best to set up the pieces for his solo film.
"Well, I think the story that I would like to tell is still at the end of the day my story," Wan told Cinema Blend while promoting The Conjuring 2 at WonderCon. "And that's what's cool with Zack, is that he's actually very respectful of that. He's actually helping me out in some ways with certain things that he's doing with his [films] so that I can have better groundwork with the standalone Aquaman story."
Justice League will open in theaters November of 2017, and Aquaman will swim into theaters July 27, 2018.
