James Wan Reveals Why He Chose Aquaman Over The Flash For The DC Live Action Universe

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.
