A standalone “Aquaman” movie is swimming its way towards the big screen, as Warner Bros. has hired Will Beall and Kurt Johnstad to write separate screenplays in an effort to speed up the development process, an individual familiar with the studio’s plan has told TheWrap.
Warner Bros. no comment.
Aquaman is expected to play a minor role in “Batman v Superman” before becoming a more central character in “Justice League.”
Johnstad has worked with Snyder before on “300,” while Beall has worked with Warner Bros. before on “Gangster Squad.”
Warner Bros. recently announced release dates for nine untitled DC Comics movies, with “Aquaman” expected to be among them.
