AQUAMAN Horror Spin-Off THE TRENCH In The Works At Warner Bros.

While Warner Bros. has yet to officially announce an Aquaman sequel, it appears the studio is already in the early stages of developing a horror spin-off to their hit film based on the villainous Trench...

Following the billion-dollar success of AquamanThe Hollywood Reporter has learned that, in lieu of a sequel, Warner Bros. is already in the early stages of developing a spinoff to the DC blockbuster which will be based on the extremely terrifying and unquestionably deadly Trench.

Newcomers Noah Gardner and Aidan Fitzgerald, who were previously assistants at Bad Robot during the J.J. Abrams-run studio's Super 8 and Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol days, have been tasked with penning the script for The Trench, which is being described as an underwater horror feature set in the DC universe.

James Wan and Peter Safran are also on board as producers.

Further details are being kept under wraps for now, but THR does confirm it'll be set exclusively in the kingdom of the Trench - which was not visited in Wan's film - and that the principal cast of Aquaman will not feature in any capacity.

Additionally, the report notes that the studio has yet-to-engage with director James Wan or star Jason Momoa about the inevitable Aquaman sequel as all three parties seek much-needed time off following a lengthy press tour and subsequent global launch.


From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be…a king.
