    Because one thing got leaked it doens't mean they are going to announce a bunch of stuff early. In a year this will be forgotten. They can still announce it when they want. (which I am assuming would be a month or two before Midnight Special)

    I really hope Jeff Nichols gets it.

    Although I'm pretty sure I'm gonna be accidentally referring to him as "Josh Nichols" quite often.

    True. But you can denny that the least thing we would have expected is Aquaman's director before... Flash?
    I'm curious if there are some things (announcements) that will get leaked and if WB knows it and therefore they can move forward before they got leaked in this current informatic storm.

    IMO they need to confirm Aquaman director though. However they can do it whenever they want... I'm not their boss. :p

    It didn't gain much traction at all. Release it in October, everyone will see it and they'll hope to get a boost in BO for Midnight Special. They went 5 months without confirming Momoa as Aquaman when sites like Variety and Hollywood reporter were saying he was, think of how long they can go when a couple no name sites report it.

    Besides, that letter is from October. Anything could have happened since then like a change of director earlier this month...

    ^^ I don't think so. They mentioned as a sort of impossible choice because they named him as the Aquaman director.

    It's because its far away (2018) from happening yet. However in Momoa case we haven't known that Aquaman was in the works. But now we have the knowledge and IMO this is a different story. But I think they will likely do it as with MacLaren. Maybe we'll have a Variety or THR article this week if they dig it with their sources. Who knows?

    It was just someone in the comments section at Screenrant pointing out that the plot of Midnight Special involved superpowers. Nothing else about what you're going on about, which doesn't even make sense. Of course the information is from those hacked emails.:whatever:

    I think you didn't get my point, or maybe I didn't yours. My point was that the e-mails put him as Aquaman director not superheroe or superpowered guy movie director like it will be for Midnight Special. Besides Midnight Special is for 2015 and Nichols involvement was known some time ago; so to think that they confuse one movie from 2015 with a movie from 2018 would be really silly.

    It's pretty clear to me that Sony didn't interfer because he closed deal with Warner/DC. If it were for that movie they wouldn't rule out him.

    haha well that certainly cleared it up. :sus :lips:

    I didn't say and neither didn't anyone at screenrant that anyone is confusing Midnight Special with Aquaman. Just that Nichols had some experience with superpowers in "Midnight Special" and that may be why he would be interested in doing an Aquaman movie after that. And how the themes of "Midnight Special" would be good experience for him if he were to take on Aquaman next. No one is disputing that the hacked Sony email was referring to anything but Aquaman.

    Then, my apologizes to you for not understanding your point. I do know. :)

    It's just that the idea of Nichols on Aquaman is really exciting.

    I'm excited too. It's an intriguing choice. I imagine it focusing very much on Arthur Curry discovering how he is a man of two worlds (like the new animated movie seems to be doing) and discovering the extent of his powers. I hope we get these big set pieces too and fully explore the world of Atlantis.

    I just read this old interview with Nichols:

    He also talks about "Midnight Special", his "sci-fi chase film" inspired by movies like John Carpenter's "Starman".

    Yes. Awesome!

    Francis Lawrence or Peter Berg would be good choices to direct this Aquaman film!

    I would say Snyder but if not him then definitely Duncan Jones, David Bowie's son

    It's nothing to be happy about, mister.
    If Jackson had interest in doing such a film, it would be beyond awesome.

    with Nichols on board, i think we can be confident in a great storyline...

    hopefully he can handle the visuals though
