James Wan Reveals The One ‘Aquaman’ Scene That Was Just Too Much, Even For ‘Aquaman’ 😮

Aquaman, which releases in the U.S. on December 21, is the newest addition to the DC Extended Universe. There has been much hype about the film, which had its Los Angeles premiere on December 12.

In a recent interview with Collider, Aquaman director James Wan revealed a scene from the original script that was just too weird to bring to life.

Wan said:

“He had a really quirky out-there [sequence]…it wasn’t the studio, it was me that said, ‘I don’t know if we can have that in there, that’s a bit weird.’ As much as I loved it. He had this sequence where…Aquaman has been apprehended by King Orm and he’s been thrown into this dungeon. Like this really awful prison deep in Atlantis. He ends up starting a prison riot, where all the guards are sharks. They were shark-guards, like all shark head…and he kills one of the shark guards and the shark starts bleeding and then that starts a feeding frenzy among all the other shark guards. It just went nuts. We’re talking like clouds of blood billowing everywhere and he uses that to escape. I was like “Holy crap, I don’t know if I can do that.”

The internet is highly intrigued. There were some calls for the deleted scene to be filmed and included in a later release of the movie.

 

Reaction to the trailers and information about the film, as well as from those who attended the premiere in Los Angeles, were overwhelmingly positive.

 

Praise for Jason Momoa as Aquaman was abundant as well!

 

The trailer’s soundtrack didn’t miss out on the love!
