A plot description for the Aquaman movie is also offered in that: An icon for over 70 years, Aquaman is the King of the Seven Seas.

“The Aquaman film will be a major tentpole picture for us and James’s span of work has proven him able to take on any manner of project, bringing his incredible creative talent and unique voice to the material,” said Warner Bros’ Greg Silverman in an announcement.

James Wan will oversee the script from Kurt Johnstad, with Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder and Zack Snyder producing.
