James Wan Addresses Rumor That He's Dropped Out of Directing "Aquaman"

Following the news of the departure of Seth Grahame-Smith from "The Flash" movie last week, a report came out that suggested James Wan was looking to bow out of his "Aquaman" movie -- but that looks to be just a rumor, as the "Saw" helmer has taken to Twitter to clear up his involvement on the project.

Wan posted the following photo of him leaning up against "Aquaman" art, indicating that he's still very much attached to the project:

The "Furious 7" director then brought up his recent work on "The Conjuring 2," and seemed to address fan's who are freaking out over the rumor of his "Aquaman" departure, saying, "You guys are killing me."

Just resurfaced from been buried in a foxhole for the last two weeks, wrapping up all things #conjuring2. You guys are killing me.

And lastly, Wan directly mentioned Devin Faraci of Birth.Movies.Death. -- who first reported the rumor -- asking fans to back off attacking him over the report:

Please, there's absolutely no need to attack Devin, or anyone.
