Justice League

Aquaman: In response to an article about the possible implications of an underwater sequence in Justice League, which featured Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Mera (Amber Heard) talking in an air bubble, director James Wan teased: "Fret not, no 'air bubbles for dialogue' in my underwater world." The article raised other questions about Aquaman's future, of course, but we'll have to wait until Aquaman, the movie, swims into theaters on December 21, 2018 to learn the answers. [THR/Twitter]


The Lego Batman Movie

Nightwing: Who wants to play Nightwing, the primary superhero in another upcoming DC movie? Director Chris McKay (The Lego Batman Movie, above) says that there will be an open casting call for the role, though he acknowledges: "That is like Vegas odds for sure." In the DC comic books, Nightwing is best known as the crime-fighting identity assumed by Dick Grayson, aka Robin, after he splits with Batman. The live-action movie is currently untitled and does not yet have a release date. [Twitter via Movieweb]
