AQUAMAN Sequel Officially In The Works With David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick On Board To Pen Script

After Aquaman grossed over $1 billion worldwide we knew it was only a matter of time before Warner Bros. made plans for a sequel official, and now it's been announced that the follow-up has a writer...

Warner Bros. has announced that a sequel to James Wan's block-busting Aquaman is officially in development, and the studio has hired the first film's co-writer to pen the script.

Multiple trades are reporting that David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick will write the King of Atlantis' next solo adventure, although there's no word on whether or not Will Beal will return. We're also awaiting confirmation that Wan will sit in the director's chair again, but he is expected to produce the movie alongside Peter Safran.

Deadline's report also reveals some intriguing new details about The Trench spin-off that was announced over the weekend. It seems that movie will feature both Jason Momoa and Amber Heard after all, while the focus will be placed on a "beast who is new in DC Comics mythology" attacking our aquatic heroes. As expected, the project is being developed with a "horror slant" in mind.

It seem clear that WB intends on milking the success of Aquaman for all it's worth, and why wouldn't they! The movie surprised everyone by not only grossing $1.1 billion worldwide, but becoming the studio's second most profitable title of all-time.
