John is perhaps best known for his work on “Red Riding Hood”, “Wrath of the Titans“, and “Orphan”. He previosuly worked on the script for Wan’s upcoming horror movie, “The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist.”


It’s unclear how Johnson will be involved in “Aquaman”, but several sources mentioned that it’s possible that he’s working with Wan to make the previous drafts work together. However, one source told The Hollywood Reporter that he could be developing a separate screenplay instead. 

“Aquaman” was previously scripted by Kurt Johnstad, who is known for his work on 2014’s “300 – The Rise Of An Empire”.

Created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger, Aquaman made his first comic book appearance in “More Fun Comics #73” in November 1941. The fictional character later became a founding member of the “Justice League of America” in 1961.

Game of Thrones” star Jason Momoa will star as Aquaman in Warner Bros’ upcoming superhero film based on DC Comics sea dwelling fictional character. Before the release of the “Aquaman” solo movie, the American actor will make his big screen debut as Aquaman in Zack Snyder‘s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice“.
