How DC's behind-the-scenes shakeup is affecting Aquaman
We've finally gotten a reaction to the DC Extended Universe's behind-the-scenes shakeup from someone involved with the DCEU. DC Comics Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns has been chosen to oversee DC's films alongside Warner Bros. exec Jon Berg, and Suicide Squad has undergone reshoots to supposedly make the end result feel more fun. Speaking with The Conjuring 2 director James Wan, CinemaBlend got to ask about one of his most anticipated projects, Aquaman, and how it will be affected by these changes.
"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," Wan said. "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."
