    So far, for some reason I get this MCU vibe from this film. Maybe cause like GotG & Black Panther, Gunn & Coogler hired director pets Rooker and Jordan.

    I think that's just a general director thing, though, where they have a kind of "production poss." and bring in actors who they've worked for and have experience with :).

    12/14: Sometimes that's true, as every director generally has a repertory. However I'm looking at it from the standpoint the studios are seeking newer filmmakers for tentpole films. So to feel comfortable they will hire folks they know for a role, instead of doing big casting calls. I do think Karl Urban might have been up for the role of Orm though. That's what got me thinking on this idea.

    Interesting, she was probably going to join Wonder Woman at one point as Hyppolyta.

    This casting news (and potential casting news) has really made me more interested in Aquaman. So far, I've been taking the DCEU one year at a time. I was more interested in Suicide Squad than Batman v Superman coming into 2016. I ended up enjoying Batman v Superman more than Suicide Squad.

    For this year, I'm more interested in Wonder Woman than Justice League. Just like 2016, I am interested in both movies. Looking at the future projects, Aquaman seems to have the most smooth production and I think it could be interesting. I love Black Manta as a villain so that's a big plus and I'd like to see what Yahya Abdul-Mateen II does with the role.

    Otherwise, a superhero movie underwater is pretty cool and considering what we've seen from Jason Momoa's radically different take, just visually, on Aquaman, I'm interested to see how the movie turns out for the time being. Besides the confirmed characters, either Aqualad would be cool to see in my opinion as well. Anyway, I hope things improve for DC.

    Sounds good to me. I mostly know Morrison from Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones/Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, Green Lantern and Moana.

    I hope he gets the role. :)

    Also, I have to see this video kind of speaks my mind about the current situation with the DCEU after Justice League.

    Well as long as it's not Arthur Jr., I think any Aqualad might be a tad safer then a Jason Todd Robin :sweat:.

    I think it's a stigma against teen sidekicks, though Wan's comment implies he's not against using Aqualad at a later point :).
