Aquaman's James Wan Wants to Direct a Batman Horror Movie

While this month's Aquaman treads heavily on fun-loving, bombastic superhero adventure, director James Wan has a much different vision for potentially helming a Batman solo film.

While at a press junket promoting the latest DCEU film, Wan shared how he would approach directing a Batman film, drawing inspiration from his own background as a horror filmmaker.

"In the past, like most people, I loved the idea of directing Batman, but a horror version of Batman. That would be a potential fantasy of mine, but I feel like he’s been done quite a fair bit," revealed Wan in an interview with Heroic Hollywood. "I do love the idea of doing an outright scary Batman. I feel like that’d be really cool."

Wan, who previously directed the first two main installments of the popular Conjuring franchise as well as the first two films in the Insidious trilogy, certainly has the horror pedigree to pull off a more terrifying version of the Dark Knight.
