Just last week, Warner Bros. threw the hammer down and announced release dates for nine untitled DC Comics adaptations all the way through 2020. The slew of release dates was part of WB’s plan to go head-to-head with Marvel Studios in putting together its own comic book movie universe, and all signs point to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as the entry point for many of the characters that will subsequently land standalone movies. Gal Gadot is already set to appear as Wonder Woman in BvS and one of the nine untitled films is no doubt a Wonder Woman movie, but today news comes about a standalone film for a different DC superhero: Aquaman. Warner Bros. is aggressively putting together an Aquaman movie by hiring two writers to work on two separate screenplays for the film in the hopes of putting together the best possible version. More after the jump.
