Aquaman movie director responds to rumors of him departing from helming the film via Twitter.

There has been rumors going on about James Wan feeling nervous about the aquatic superhero film and that he might leave the helm for some other director sometime. Wan took it to Twitter to bring light to these rumors.

He was also briefly shown as such superhero in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” when Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) and Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) where investigating Lex Luthor’s (Jesse Eisenberg) files. Coincidentally, he was also in the cast of TV show “Stargate Atlantis” and Aquaman’s place of origin is Atlantis. Mera, the spouse of Aquaman, will be portrayed by Amber Heard. There are rumors that the film will feature Ocean Master, Aquaman’s rival and half-brother to be played by Karl Urban. Simon Baker and Matt Damon were initially considered for the Aquaman role.

The plot for the “Aquaman” movie is yet to be revealed but it is certain that the DC comic film will be available in theaters this July 27, 2018.
