"Aquaman" earned $ 1.1 billion at the worldwide box office, but no matter how journalists exaggerated the topic of the sequel, Warner Bros. yet it is in no hurry to please moviegoers with news about the imminent return of the superhero to the screens. It is surprising that the major decided to move away from the usual scheme for the DC universe, and instead of a continuation, work on which could take years, is preparing a blockbuster spin-off. Moreover, the new project is a full-fledged horror.|
Those who have watched "Aquaman" probably guess what the spin-off will be about. One of the best scenes in the film by James Wang can rightfully be called the battle of the title character and Mera with creepy creatures called the Fallen. So, the WB bosses decided that the Hollow and its inhabitants deserve a separate project. You shouldn't expect the main cast of "Aquaman" to appear in the film, and she will receive a more modest budget than Arthur Curry's soloist.
The tape will expand the mythology of the Fallen - creepy creatures that live at the very bottom of the ocean, in the Mariana Trench. Once they were also humanoid Atlanteans, but evolution did its job, and the people of the Hollow turned into primitive creepy monsters with fangs, gills and a fear of light.
“We created an animated version of that scene and showed it to the studios,recalls producer Peter Safran in The Art and Making of Aquaman, referring to Aquaman's first encounter with the Fallen. -She brought us back to the days when James Wang was doing real horror movies. It's like Creation from Black Lagoon, 2018 version only. The scene came out creepy and fantastic, and in my opinion, it is one of the reasons Aquaman got the green light ". Safran was supported by production designer Bill Brzeski:“For James, horror is his daily bread. He wanted to make this scene special, it means a lot to him..
The Fallen, by the way, appeared not only in comics and Aquaman, but also in the animated film Justice League: Throne of Atlantis. Thanks to the bold and unexpected decision of WB, they will now appear in all their glory and in their own film.
