“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.”
Here is the run-through for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom:
When an ancient power is let loose, Aquaman should create an anxious alliance with a not likely ally to secure Atlantis, and the world, from permanent destruction.
