During an interview with Uproxx Wan said that during talks with DC he was given a choice between The Flash & Aquaman.</p>“This is how I weighed it: For me, we’ve seen various versions of The Flash…There’s a popular show on TV and there was a great one in the ‘90s. I loved that Flash! But 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. And also, I love the fact that Aquaman is an underdog character. I love the fact that people like to make fun of him. [Laughs.] I feel the bar is a lot lower and I can have fun with him! Everyone makes fun of him! And I actually don’t mind that! What it allows me to do: I think people are a lot less precious with him than, let’s say, you were doing a Spider-Man or a Batman or whatever. I felt like it allows me the freedom to just tell the story of the character I wanted to tell. And I think what I proved for myself with Fast and Furious 7, how I took on this massive movie and I was able to overcome the tragedy that befell the production"
Justice League Dark Animated Movie Coming Soon?
Apparently (unbeknownst to me at least) Guillermo Del Toro had been working on a live screen adaption of Justice League Dark (which is different from the upcoming Justice League movie connected to the same universe w/the same cast as BvS). Since WB/DC has a pretty full slate of movies and GDT chose to work on Pacific Rim 2 this has been put by the wayside. Instead it's possible Justice League Dark part of DC's animation slate instead.
