Warner Bros. Pictures is reportedly trying to get director James Wan back for the inevitable sequel to “Aquaman” following the film’s billion-dollar success at the global box-office over the past month or so.
The film, which is poised to supplant “The Dark Knight Rises” as the top-grossing film in the DC Universe, is closing in on $1.07 billion as of last weekend and understandably the studio is keen for more.
Deadline reports that Wan will oversee the development of a second film, including the selection of writers, but will only make a decision on whether to direct it when he sees the script. Wan spent years working on the first one which shot over six months in Australia, Morocco, Italy and Canada.
“Aquaman” is presently in cinemas.
