'The Trench will be a monster horror movie'
Los Angeles: Filmmaker James Wan has revealed that The Trench, spin-off to his 2018 blockbuster Aquaman, will be more of a monster horror film than a superhero movie. Introduced in the Jason Momoa-fronted Aquaman, The Trench are aquatic abominations who tormented Aquaman and Mera (Amber Heard) during one of the most intense sequences in the film.
In an interview with Comicbook.com, Wan said, "Definitely it's one that I really want to lean into the horror of it, so it's going to play more as a monster horror movie than it will as a superhero film."
Producer Peter Safran had confirmed in earlier this year in March that Arthur and Mera will not appear in The Trench.
