'Aquaman' Scribe Returning To Write Sequel For DC Films

Aquaman Screenwriter Sign a Deal To Return For the Sequel

Aquaman: Horror-Focused Spin-Off The Trench In The Works

The advance tracking for Aquaman correctly predicted it would be a hit.

Aquaman has now made US$1.1 billion (RM4.475 billion) at the worldwide box office, meaning that it is Warner Bros' biggest DC Comics adaptation, more than even Batman triumph The Dark Knight Rises.

Warner Bros. has taken a definitive step toward an "Aquaman" sequel, hiring David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick to write the script.

Though there has been talk of a sequel following the huge earning power of the first film, Wan has yet to officially commit to make the next one, with no real discussions between any of the actors or studio.

From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, "Aquaman", starring Jason Momoa in the title role. Johnson-McGoldrick's previous credits include The Walking Dead, Mob City, and The Conjuring 2. However, it's now unclear if Wan intends to direct the sequel as well.

It looks like the writer of Aquaman will be on the franchise for some time as he has been tapped to write the DC film's sequel. Within Aquaman, the Trench were the feral humanoid sea monsters who attacked Arthur and Mera near the end of their quest. He won't handle this one, though, choosing instead to produce alongside Peter Safran.
