Aquaman’ director James Wan has revealed that he wanted to make a Batman movie, but with a twist. The director, who is mainly known for his horror movies like ‘The Conjuring’, says his take on the Caped Crusader would have been horror.
At the ‘Aquaman’ junket, Wan spoke to Heroic Hollywood. He said, “In the past, like most people, I loved the idea of directing ‘Batman’, but a horror version of ‘Batman’. That would be a potential fantasy of mine, but I feel like he’s been done quite a fair bit. But, I do love the idea of doing an outright scary ‘Batman’. I feel like that’d be really cool.”
‘Batman’, due to his nature of being active in the night, has been associated with horror in comics as well. He has been an unseen terror for the criminals of Gotham. There are various out-and-out horror Batman stories like ‘Batman and Dracula’, ‘Batman: Gothic’, ‘Dark Nights: Metal’ and so on.
James Wan’s ‘Aquaman’, starring Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson and others, will release in India on December 14, a week before its release in the US.
