The sequel all the time has to go darker, proper? After a brand new hope, the empire must strike again. It’s true from The Temple of Doom scaring the PG out of Raiders of the Misplaced Ark to The Darkish Knight snuffing the ray of hope introduced in Batman Begins. And it seems to be true in some kind with Aquaman 2, judging by what director James Wan teased at DC FanDome.
Talking at a panel that consisted of Wan and frequent collaborator Patrick Wilson chatting amongst themselves, the pair traded little scraps of on-set recollections earlier than teasing what to anticipate from the follow-up to 2018’s groovy vibes in Aquaman.
“I’m excited to proceed the journeys of our heroes, and antiheroes for that matter, and to proceed to develop on the world with quantity two,” Wan stated. “Attempt to do new issues I didn’t get round to on the primary movie. Strive one thing recent. And the second, I’d say, is a bit more severe, just a little extra related on the earth we’re residing in right this moment. And I feel that’s form of the place it desires to go.”
It is smart that Wan would wish to go for a barely extra somber tone within the sequel for the reason that first one was as gentle as an inflated raft. This isn’t essentially a critique. Aquaman has a cheerful good instances aesthetic that seemed just like the album cowl of each hair steel band of the 1980s. However for those who’re going to develop this into an ongoing saga, maybe grounding it just a little extra as apropos.
