"Sony Hack" Reveals AQUAMAN Director And FANTASTIC FOUR/X-MEN Movie Plans

It appears as if execs at Sony are privy to more than just the goings on in their own studio as a new set of "Sony Hack" emails reveal who will apparently direct Aquaman for Warner Bros. and that Simon Kinberg is planning a huge Fantastic Four/X-Men team-up movie...


The Daily Beast have sifted through more of the "Sony Hack" emails, and they reveal some potentially very interesting details about a few other upcoming superhero movies. First of all, after discussing plans for a shared Spider-Man Cinematic Universe (we'll bring you details on that a little later), Michael De Luca, co-president of production for Columbia Pictures, told Sony boss Amy Pascal that they should be trying to emulate what 20th Century Fox are planning on doing with the X-Men and Fantastic Four franchises; a giant team-up movie! His source? Writer and producer Simon Kinberg. "[Simon] Kinberg told me fox is steering Xmen and Fantastic Four into an eventual team up film," De Luca revealed, confirming a long standing rumour in the process. It's unclear when all this might go down, but you have to imagine it will be at some point in the next few years with The Fantastic Four set for 2015 and X-Men: Apocalypse on the way the following year.

In other news, the site also reports that Jeff Nichols is seemingly going to direct Aquaman, the 2018 movie starring Jason Momoa. Nichols' credits include critically acclaimed releases like Mud and Take Shelter, and he actually seems like the perfect fit for what you have to imagine will be a visually very distinct movie. It's not clear if this is 100% confirmed as of right no
