James Wan who us the director of the Aquaman 2, has confirmed that he will delve into his horror imagination for the upcoming sequel, revealing that some of the scenes will show “a little bit more” of his “scary sauce.”
He shared in his Twitter account, an excerpt from a Q&A in which he disclosed that the horror scene will look like the horror inspired Aquaman Trench movie.
During the Q&A, he said, “Just like the first movie had a touch of my horror sensibility in it, in regards to the Trench sequence, I would say there’ll be a little bit of that in this next one,” Wan confirmed in response to a fan asking about the crossover of genres. “I think it’s something that’s a big part of who I am, and it just naturally comes out in these kinds of films. And especially a movie like Aquaman, where the story takes place in these underwater worlds that can be very scary. So naturally, my love for the horror genre just means that I latch myself to these scenes and try to give them a little bit more of my scary sauce.”
The Aquaman’s Trench scene shows something which looks like a monster movie. The movie shows Arthur and Mera as they both dragged a boat out the water, which happens to be where ravenous amphibious creatures are. The amphibious creatures happened to attack the boat and also tried to pull Authur and Mera down to the deep, dark depths of the Mariana Trench which happens to be a tense sequence of Wan’s horror roots.
The Trench scene turned out to be so popular that a horror-tinged spinoff film centered on the Trench is now said to be in early development. Wan is said to be collaborating with Peter Sefran to make the project, however no official confirmation has been made on when the movie will make it to cinemas.
Aquaman 2 is still set to premiere on December 16, 2022.
