    Aquaman (2018)

    The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Warner Bros has hired screenwriters Will Beall (Gangster Squad) and Kurt Johnstad (300) to pen two separate scripts for an upcoming Aquaman film. The film will be one of the nine upcoming installments after Batman v. Superman that will help shape DC's Cinematic Universe. The film is being developed on dual tracks, meaning that two scripts will be written, one by Beall and one by Johnstad, but only the best version will move forward.

    A week ago, Warner Bros announced nine upcoming DC projects, the earliest of which comes August 5, 2016, a few months after their most ambitious DC adventure, Batman v. Superman. Based on this news, there is a good chance Aquaman may take this spot. However, accounting for unforeseen issues, 2017 may be the better bet as WB already has two DC releases set for June 23 and November 17.

    No definitive word on the cast yet, but Jason Momoa has been confirmed/rumored to be making a cameo as Arthur Curry/Aquaman in Batman v. Superman. He'll likely reprise the role in this solo adventure.

    I'm happy that they are working on it but I wish they had a better reputation.

    I thought Gangster Squad was bad but the first 300 is a very good film and script wise it's a good one.

    It's too bad they can't get Snyder to direct Aquaman. That's the kind of movie he would just destroy (in a good way).

    I wonder who they will get to direct the film.

    The only reason I was feeling a little optimistic was because I loved the first 300. I didn't see the sequel yet.

    Did this guy write 300 or its mediocre sequel?

    I've only read two Aquaman arcs/stories in my life which are Throne of Atlantis and King Arthur. So I can't really say which stories they should adapt. But TOA is pretty epic. King Arthur was written by Dan Jurgens and it's about Arthur being pissed of at the surface dwellers and he want's revenge on a big scale.

    That's surprising, I thought that the first 300 movie had much better dialogue.

    It was also better written, it seemed, perhaps Frank Miller was more involved or simply more "in his prime". As an example, Xerxes is kind of pathetic in the second one.

    The second movie was made from scratch while the first one was pretty much a word-for-word translation which is why it turned out so well along with Sin City.

    Well, the second movie is a mediocre screenplay in my opinion. There's some good in it, but it doesn't strike me as the work of a great unrecognised talent. They weren't able to replace the magic of Frank Miller, and that's on them.

    Justice League Deep sounds like an actual title; maybe for an animated movie.

    I hope for Aquaman they do something similar to Man of Steel and Dark Knight and do something like King of Atlantis or something like that.

    Well those are alternative names they've been called...so question is: what if any are Aquaman's alternative names?
