Two Aquaman Scripts?

By Dr. Know on August 13th, 2014

Now that Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is deep into production, Warner Bros. is wasting no time in developing other DC characters for the big screen; the studio has hired Will Beall (Gangster Squad, unproduced Justice League) and Kurt Johnstad (300, Act of Valor) to pen two separate Aquaman screenplays.

The goal is to have both screenwriters pen separate stories, then have the studio choose the best one; however, I’m willing to bet the studios will only like elements of both, which will precipitate bringing in yet another screenwriter to write a “Frankenstein” draft, mining elements from both.

As most of you know, Jason Momoa is playing Aquaman in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Whether or not he plays the character in a stand-alone  movie is another hill of beans. A million things could happen between now and then to either derail the project.

As of press time, there’s no confirmation which of the recently announced DC movie dates Aquaman will be slotted into…if any at all.
