Will ‘Aquaman’ Be Helmed by ‘Mud’ Director Jeff Nichols?


Quote:
The Sony Leak of 2014 has not only shed light on the studio’s plan-making behind closed doors, but also that of its rival studios. For example, one leaked email confirms the all-but-official news that Simon Kinberg – screenwriter on X-Men: Days of Future Past and next year’s Fantastic Four reboot – is laying the foundation for a Fantastic Four/X-Men movie crossover down the line. That is cited in the leaked email as being a prospective model for Sony’s planned Spider-Man Movie Shared Universe (plans that are very much in flux right now).

A separate email, as reported by The Daily Beast, suggests that Warner Bros. and DC have recruited the indie filmmaker Jeff Nichols to direct the Aquaman solo movie starring Jason Momoa as the eponymous, nautical, superhero. Momoa has recently expressed his desire to see Zack Snyder helm that specific DC project, though the odds are that was more wishful thinking on his part than anything else (seeing as Snyder is already officially lined up to direct two Justice League movies next).


Nichols, however, would be a choice in keeping with the talent that WB/DC have already recruited to put together a DC Movie Shared Universe. That roster includes a handful of people who, similar to Nichols, have earned their fair share of critical acclaim, including Suicide Squad director David Ayer (Fury) and Michelle MacLaren (Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad), who’s both directing and overseeing script development on Wonder Woman.
Nichols may not be a big name director but he has a pretty great record so far. I only saw Mud and I really enjoyed that film.
He also wrote every film he's directed so hopefully he writes the Aquman movie too.

Also check out Jessica Chastain's tweet earlier:

She's worked with Nichols before so I hope he looks at her for Mera!

EXCLUSIVE: Viola Davis Bags Amanda Waller Role In 'Suicide Squad'


BREAKING

The final superhero movie scoop of 2014!

Wanted to finish the year off strong with a scoop I been tracking for a hot minute.

According to sources, the lovely Viola Davis (How To Get Away With Murder) has bagged the role of major DC Comics villain and Prison Warden Amanda Waller in David Ayer's upcoming Suicide Squad. In the comics, Amanda Waller is a former congressional aide and government agent often placed in charge of the Suicide Squad, a semi-secret government-run group of former supervillains working in return for amnesty.

Now, the key here is that the role is hers provided that the filmmakers can work out her TV schedule, which will be no small feat considering how big of a hit How To Get Away With Murder is. If it works out she will be joining Jared Leto as the Joker, Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Tom Hardy as Rick Flag, Jai Courtney as Boomerang (or Captain Boomerang), and Cara Delevingne as Enchantress.

Oprah Winfrey and Octavia Spencer were reported earlier as contenders for the role.

Happy Holidays everyone to you and yours!

Well, looks like they picked the least Waller-looking choice out of their options. I've no doubt she can handle the role, but I was, perhaps foolishly, impressed that they were considering options that hearkened back (somewhat) to the old, heavy Waller. Viola Davis is more in the vein of nuWaller.

I'm telling you, CCH Pounder, and fatten her up for the role.

How is it Marvel can get casting right? WB just doesn't follow their lea and pick the right people for these roles.

Viola Davis is hands down the best possible actress for the role.

i agree with you on pounder but it is what it is sadly. pounder is a highly requested actor because when the final season of sons aired sutter stated she can only be used for like 2 episodes thats it do to other commitments. she only appeared in the first and final episode of the final season for season 7


i honestly have no idea who this woman is that they casted but judging by the responses it seems like fans are ok with it wich is a shock for me honestly

well to be fair i still aint on board for a suicide squad film only because i feel dc needs to establish its heroes first. again i aint knocking the casting hell i never heard of this woman but thats just my 2 cents because i really do believe green lantern's reboot should take that spot first if anything since hes a major player in jla and plus how are they going to explain hes not even in the damn group? wile i think dc is good right now for following through with there plans i just wish they would plan better as far as release dates go because jesus christ man 2020 is a long ways away

Viola Davis is a perfect choice for the role and I can't believe I'm saying that.

It's only Wonder Woman. I just naturally assume that one will be a stinker that bombs.

This tells me that DC/WB does not have definite vision for Wonder Woman and their overall cinematic universe. WB needs a Kevin Feige to oversea their DC films to ensure a cohesive cinematic universe.

Because all the other movies (Aquaman, Cyborg, Suicide Squad) are guaranteed winners.

Or... They could have a plot based idea and a few notes and scenes in mind and they're getting more people to make scripts so they can possibly get memorable moments from each and make a final draft from two or more of the scripts? I've read numerous times that final scripts are often made from other drafts done by other writers.

One writer for example could have a better voice for WW while another may be better at the other characters. No matter what it will be a group effort.
