James Wan’s Aquaman was such a hit, not only will it get a sequel, even its tertiary characters are getting their own movies.
Just not the ones anyone expected.
Writers Noah Gardner and Aidan Fitzgerald have been hired to write The Trench, a horror-themed DC movie focused on the creatures who attack Arthur (Jason Momoa) and Mera (Amber Heard) toward the end of Aquaman.
All that’s known about the film, according to the Hollywood Reporter, is that “it will be set in the kingdom of the Trench and will not feature the main cast of Aquaman.”
Wan will produce along with Peter Safran and the film will be “much more modestly budgeted than the normal DC superhero tentpole,” according to the trade.
The trench scene in Aquaman was super cool.
