James Wan: Director had a choice between helming 'Aquaman' and 'The Flash'
In an interview with our sister site Uproxx, Wan said, “The thing that ultimately pushed me more towards Aquaman is I love the possibility of creating a whole new world. I’ve always wanted to do a world creation story and visually create this amazing, incredible, magical kingdom.”
Wan added that he was drawn to Aquaman being an “underdog character. I love the fact that people like to make fun of him.”
Aquaman stars Jason Momoa, an actor best known for his work as Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones. The movie is slated for a July 2018 release.
