'Aquaman' star Jason Momoa added to Wizard World New Orleans

The DC superhero team movie, produced at a budget of $300 million and expected to be their answer to Marvel's Avengers, ended up being the lowest grossing film of the series.

Jason Momoa, who rocketed to superstardom in "Justice League" (2017) and "Aquaman" (in theaters now), will attend Wizard World New Orleans on Friday and Saturday, January 4-5, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. It could've happened! The current status of the feature film starring the speedster is unclear - last we heard, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein were in the running to direct. In a new interview with The New York Times, the director revealed that before signing on to helm this week's Aquaman, he was actually given a choice between that film or The Flash. I absolutely love Ezra Miller, he's like family to me. "A few months later, I was in a general meeting with DC and they floated two properties that didn't have filmmakers on board: The Flash and Aquaman".

The film has made $261 million (Rs 1800 crore), with the majority of it coming from China, where the film was released a full two weeks before the U.S. and has made close to $200 million.

"It's pretty insane. For as big a movie as "Aquaman" is, I could not have had more freedom". He also felt that Aquaman would give him a chance to create something fresh for viewers. The one that had not been done was Aquaman.

And before you ask, yes, we did question exactly what Momoa's idea for an Aquaman sequel entailed, but he stopped short of dishing any details, joking that it would "ruin the movie".

Although Aquaman does have sea monsters in it, the film hardly comes across as a horror movie. Would you like to see The Flash and Wonder Woman in Aquaman 2?

Of course, the "one more" contracted appearance that Momoa refers to may just be a cameo in another DC movie, or as part of a superhero ensemble flick like Justice League, so don't go banking on Aquaman 2 just yet either way.
