Aquaman Has A Director

"My trident can cut through plastic can holders in three, sometimes two swipes."

After, well, a lot of negotiating, Warner Brothers has found a director for their Aquaman movie.

The movie, set to star Jason Momoa, a man who knows a thing or two about Atlantis since he used to be a cast member on Stargate Atlantis, as well as how to be a badass since his character nearly died of an infection on Game of Thrones, as well as being romantically linked for quite some time to a former Huxtable…wait, this article is about the Aquaman director.  I’ll stick that name after the cut, with some speculation from me.

It’s James Wan, who directed Fast and the Furious 7 and a bunch of creepy horror movies.

But, hey. Furious 7 is a big deal.  The guy has big budget action experience under his belt.  And just imagine what sort of fun he can have with these established modes of Aquaman transportation:

Pretend they're pulling Vin Diesel.
Pretend they’re pulling Vin Diesel.
"Eat my wake!"
“Eat my wake!”

And of course, there’s this high speed action:



I’m sure some people can’t wait.  I am not sure if I am one of them, and I actually like Aquaman done right.
