    The quote you were quoting here sounds a little bit too much like Dawn of the Planet of the Apes to me.

    Since James Wan likes working with them, I think we might see Patrick Wilson and/or Vera Farmiga in this film

    I think Patrick could be a good Orm, and Vera could be Atlanna
    But since Atlanteans will probably be polynesian... it wouldn't work

    No reason they can't be diverse in appearance.

    He likes working with them in horror films. Warner Bros probably wants more star names to round out the supporting cast. But i guess it's possible.

    Watched The Conjuring for the first time last night. No idea how any of what I saw on display there will translate to Aquaman, but I liked it.

    Wan is definitely at his best in horror genre... now I don't expect any genre elements to make their way into Aquaman, but I'd certainly welcome it.

    Hope Tony Jaa plays a role.. a minor character atleast.. he fits with the looks of the characters and is a great martial artist.. and loved him in furious 7.. but waay before that his thai films are great too...!!

    James Wan feels right for Aquaman for some reason. I think he was a weirder choice for Furious 7 because at the time he had never made an action film. After he was able to not only do that film, but also make it work after what hapened with Paul Walker, no task seems to big for him.

    I would have preferred Nichols to be honest. The only Wan movie I liked was the first Saw movie.

    I really enjoyed Fast 7 for what it was.

    Insidious and Conjuring were okay too.

    I love this. Wan has a unique style that I feel could translate extremely well to Aquaman as he'll have no shortage of potentially overly epic visuals to offer.

    I didn't like Take Shelter (Midnight Special looks good though).

    I liked Conjuring a lot, Insidious and Furious 7 were flawed but still good overall. He seems like a very versatile filmmaker.

    Wan said he wants to bring a more swashbuckling aspect to aquaman. I absolutely can't wait! I think he's going to be amazing

    So, like a dark Pirates of the Caribbean story with trench monsters that make you crap your pants? I would totally want that. Also, sharks!

    The thing I like most about Wan is his attention to detail and how he makes you feel coming into a certain shot.
    When I saw "The Conjuring" for the first time, I was blown away at how scared I was at this movie and it was all old school thrills and chills. Also goes to show that Wan is very adaptable when it comes to movies...I wasn't sure how Furious 7 was going to be with him directing it, but he did an incredible job with that movie.

    Aquaman humor:

    JL member: Where's Aquaman?

    Batman: He's useless. I sent him home.

    Later, when they;re confronting the villain: the ground collapses and villain falls into a pit of sea water and nasty sea creatures.

    Aquaman used his powers over the seas to erode a passage to the villain's place, then eroded away the very ground underneath the villain.
