‘Aquaman’ Finds a New Writer; Mera Set To Appear in ‘Justice League: Part One’?

Nov 13, 2015

Production on the upcoming DC film slate is gearing up. First we have filming on Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman begin soon with Justice League filming directly after. But along with that production on The Flash starring Ezra Miller and Aquaman starring Jason Momoa is picking up as well. Last year we had heard that DC Comics called upon 300 writer Kurt Johnstad to pen the screenplay for Aquaman. Well, that seems to only be half true.

According to The Hollywood Reporter screenwriter David Leslie Johnson has been tapped to do the script with help from Kurt Johnstad. David Leslie Johnson is best known for penning Wrath of the Titans another mythological film from 2012. Fast and Furious 7 director James Wan has been tapped to direct.

In other news, Heroic Hollywood is reporting that Mera is expected to have some type of cameo in Justice League: Part One. Mera is known to be the wife of Arthur Curry and queen of Atlantis. They describe her role in the DC Expanded Universe as basically the “Khaleesi” of the DCEU. Which makes sense considering Jason Momoa played the Khaleesi wife on the HBO hit-show Game of Thrones. After news broke that Mera would appear in Justice League: Part One (And obviously the Aquaman solo film) many fans started casting actress Jessica Chastian as a possible candidate
