After watching Batman v Superman earlier this year, you either loved it or hated it Unfortunately, it looks like a good amount of people went for the latter, due to multiple things contained in the film. Some even consider Batman v Superman to be a box office failure, even with the film nearly making 900 million worldwide. The critics had no mercy on their blogs and pieces, and any thought of establishing a sound, and successful foundation for a DC Cinematic Universe was pretty much left behind in their minds. However, DC has started to take a step into the right direction by hiring DC Comics’ CCO (Chief Creative Officer) Geoff Johns to help co-run DC Films – a role many are comparing to Kevin Feige’s over at Marvel.
While we won’t see any of these changes until Justice League: Part One (you’re on your own, Suicide Squad), many people are excited about the recent shake-ups over at DC and their awareness toward building a better cinematic universe to go toe to toe with bitter rivals Marvel. One of the people expressing their happiness towards this change is James Wan, who also happens to be the director of the upcoming movie Aquaman. When asked, James Wan had this to say:
“To be honest, it’s not as dramatic as the press is making it out to be – from what I’m seeing. And right now I’m seeing everything as more an outsider looking into this box. So from that perspective, it’s really cool that it’s not crazy, crazy dramatic. I think it’s great. Geoff Johns is super talented, super smart. Part of what got me excited about the Aquaman character is his re-envisioning of Aquaman, the character, with The New 52. And that’s super exciting. And I’m working very closely with him, and I want to work with him very closely to shape the story that I want to tell.”
