Following the critical and financial disappointment of Batman v Superman, this rumor was all too plausible. Devin Faraci at Birth. Movies Death., reported that “multiple, reliable sources” had told him Wan was “feeling a tremendous amount of trepidation about Aquaman.” And as Faraci pointed out, Aquaman needs Wan more than Wan—the director of the hugely lucrative Fast 7—needs Aquaman.
After a few days of radio silence, Wan has responded to the rumor. That Aquaman selfie looks like a pretty clear sign that he’s still onboard.
Please, there’s absolutely no need to attack Devin, or anyone.

Batman v Superman disappointed a lot of DC Comics fans, so it’s no surprise that there’s a certain morbid thirst to see the Justice League franchise crash and burn. But for now, it seems that things are still on track—although perhaps less so for The Flash, which needs a new director.
