'Aquaman' Scribe Returning To Write Sequel For DC Films

Aquaman has grossed $1.1 billion worldwide, making it the second highest grossing Warner Bros. title of all-time and the first DC title since 2012's Dark Knight Rises to cross that monumental mark at the B.O. Success at that level pretty much guaranteed a sequel would happen, and now Warner Bros.is reportedly starting to lay the groundwork for it.

According to the Wrap, Aquaman co-writer, David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, will be returning to pen the sequel for DC.

The Australian/Malaysian director of 'Aquaman, ' James Wan, at his film's December 2018 world premiere.

THR notes that Wan is now making his own deal to return for Aquaman 2 as an executive producer alongside Peter Safran. Johnson-McGoldrick began working on the script three years ago after reading "Aquaman" comic books while on the set of "The Conjuring 2". However, it's now unclear if Wan intends to direct the sequel as well. Within Aquaman, the Trench were the feral humanoid sea monsters who attacked Arthur and Mera near the end of their quest.

Prior to Aquaman, director James Wan built his reputation on a sequence of hit horror movies: Saw, Insidious and The Conjuring were all made under his direction, before he took on action movie Furious 7 and then DC's latest and biggest hit. Let us know in the comment section below!
