'Aquaman' Scribe, Will Beall Discusses Film; A More Humorous Affair

Aquaman will be coming to cinemas worldwide in 2018, and will be the first film to revolve around the character. It has also been written by scribe, Will Beall, who co-wrote the film with its director, James Wan, and DC Films co-head, Geoff Johns. Beall, while promoting CBS' Training Day at the TCA event, was asked about the film.

Beall was asked about the sort of tone the film will be going for and what the audience should expect. “It’s going to be fun, it’s going to be really fun," Beall said. "What we’ve come up with and James [Wan] especially — he has a really clear idea of the tone he’s going to have, and I think Aquaman is one that’s going to blow people’s minds, not just visually, but I think the story and the scope of it is really great.”

The writer then talked about how we now have the technology to make such a film contrasting it to how it was easy to do a Batman film back in the day. “What’s interesting is that you couldn’t have done it before," Beall noted. "You know, you could do Batman in 1988, but now you have the technology, and it’s going to be cool.”

Going from the tone of the film about the Atlantean to having the technology to make it, Beall went on to talk about the general tone of the DC Extended Universe will be going towards in the future. “I think Justice League again is, what you’re going to see — I hope I’m not going to get in trouble for saying this — but it’s much more fun, much poppier, than … I haven’t seen Wonder Woman yet, but Batman vs Superman was a little more somber. But Justice League is a lot more fun. And I think that feels to me like the direction those movies are heading now.”

Jason Momoa plays the titular role, Arthur Curry, he will be joined by Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Orm, and Willem Dafoe as Vulko. Aquaman is set for a October 5th, 2018 date directed by James Wan.
