Fans may still get to see more of the Trench.
Aquaman director James Wan just recently reviewed the ditched spinoff, The Trench, and how concepts from this movie are still making their method into his work.
Aquaman showed a substantial hit for DC and Warner Bros. when it was launched in 2018, with Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa lastly making one of DC’s most buffooned heroes cool in the eyes of the audience. Along with the typical comic-book movie delights, Aquaman brought some chilling moments to life in a scene including the Trench.
The Trench are a monstrous subspecies of Atlanteans. They are meat-eating animals, more fish-like than routine humanoid Atlanteans, and have actually adjusted to make it through at severe depths. The prepared spinoff would have been more of a scary movie, concentrating on the Trench and Aquaman’s bane, Black Manta.
A Brand-new Future For The Trench
In a current interview with ComicBook.com, James Wan was inquired about the ditched Aquaman spinoff. The director exposed that concepts from The Trench might continue to affect his work, recommending components from that movie might still be seen somewhere else. Wan stated:
“Listen, I feel like everything I come up with, everything I do, if I come up with something that I don’t end up using, that doesn’t mean that I cannot be inspired to use that in a different way. That’s my problem, is I come up with a lot of ideas and I have so many ideas just percolating, but obviously, I can’t use all of them. So I would say of all the different thoughts and ideas I’ve come up with, I end up using maybe 20-30% of them in my work, and so I do have a drawer full of ideas that could develop into something else.”
While James Wan doesn’t verify whether any of his unused concepts from The Trench are making their method into the upcoming Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, it definitely seems like that might be the case. It’s likewise possible that a few of the underlying principles and concepts for The Trench might discover a house somewhere else, in the director’s work beyond DC.
