James Wan is mainly known for his horror movies like The Conjuring, says his take on Batman would have been horror. Aquaman, starring Jason Momoa, Amber Heard and others, will release in India on December 14.

James Wan’s Aquaman releases on December 14. Aquaman director James Wan has revealed that he wanted to make a Batman movie, but with a twist. The director, who is known for his movies like The Conjuring, says his take on the Caped Crusader would have been horror.

At the Aquaman junket, James Wan spoke to Heroic Hollywood. He said, “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. But, I do love the idea of doing an outright scary Batman. I feel like that’d be really cool.”

Batman featured many times before and showcased in many varied tones. At present, Matt Reeves is developing a noir look on the character. We had Ben Affleck play an older, nihilistic version in Batman v Superman and a little more hopeful Batman in Justice League. Christian Bale’s Batman in Christopher Nolan’s movies was seen all grounded Dark Knight whose suit was a military-grade armoured exoskeleton made up of many small parts. Before that there was George Clooney’s forgettable Batman and before that Michael Keaton’s gothic Caped Crusader.

Batman has been associated with horror in comics as well. He has been an unseen terror for the criminals of Gotham. There are many horror Batman stories like Batman and Dracula, Batman: Gothic, Dark Nights: Metal and so on.

James Wan’s Aquaman is featuring Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson and others, will release in India on December 14, a week before its release in the US.
