“Aquaman” director James Wan assured DC fans that his film won’t use the “Justice League” trick where Atlanteans communicated underwater using air bubbles.
“Fret not, no “air bubbles for dialogue” in my underwater world,” tweeted Wan.

“Justice League” featured a dialogue sequence set in Atlantis between Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Mera (Amber Heard). For the dialogue scene, the two created an air bubble around themselves to speak with each other. The Hollywood Reporter detailed the challenges Wan is presented with after “Justice League” underperformed at the box office this past weekend, it noted that the air bubble solution for dialogue would not be something sustainable for an entire film.

This lead to a response from Wan on Twitter in which the director confirmed the standalone “Aquaman” film would feature dialogue exchanges in a much different way than “Justice League.”
“I try to stay the f– away from what people say,” the actor behind Aquaman told EW. “Some of my friends said, ‘”Justice League” isn’t doing well’ and it kind of bummed me out. But I didn’t want to look it up. I don’t want to look up the bad and the negativity. I don’t think that’s useful; it doesn’t help.”
Momoa, who has seen the movie twice, praised director Zack Snyder’s “bada–” vision for Aquaman — but acknowledged that much of it had to wait for “Aquaman.”
Every DC Comics Movie Ranked From Worst to Best, Including 'Birds of Prey' and 'Joker'
How does the latest entry in the DC Extended Universe fare in our rankings?
While Marvel has spent the past decade overloading pop culture with new films, DC is really the original comic book movie brand. DC's presence in the cinema goes even further back than the original "Superman" film, with its popular weekly serials way back in the 1930s and '40s. For decades now we've gotten a steady diet of films based on the DC universe, culminating at this point in time with "Joker" and "Birds of Prey." So let's see how those new flicks stack up against the rest of DC's long history on the big screen.
