Warner Bros. Will Develop AQUAMAN Horror Spin-Off Titled THE TRENCH

AQUAMAN is the biggest superhero movie blockbuster for Warner Bros. surpassing the $1 billion worldwide mark as well as surpassing the total grosses of THE DARK KNIGHT and its sequel THE DARK KNIGHT RISES.

While AQUAMAN 2 is definitely coming at some point in the future, the studio will also push forward a spin-off called THE TRENCH, featuring the monsters seen in AQUAMAN. The Hollywood Reporter broke this news and writes:

"Warners has hired newbie scribes Noah Gardner and Aidan Fitzgerald to pen a horror-tinged script centered on the Trench, the deadly amphibious creatures seen attacking the hero and his love, Mera, in Aquaman.

"Wan and Peter Safran will produce the project, titled The Trench, which would be much more modestly budgeted than the normal DC superhero tentpole."

There is a possibility that DC fans could see THE TRENCH before AQUAMAN 2 if its development moves swiftly with its writing team in place.
