It is currently unclear whether Wan would come back to direct. The news came almost two months after the film, headlined by Jason Momoa, released. The movie turned out to earn $1.12 billion globally. It is Warner Bros' first DC movie to pass the $1 billion mark since 2012's The Dark Knight Rises. Johnson-McGoldrick co-wrote Aquaman with Will Beall (Gangster Squad), with Geoff Johns receiving a story by credit along with Beall and Wan. The studio is also developing horror spin-off from the Aquaman series, titled The Trench.
