It's been almost two months since Aquaman made his way into the cinemas, slapping the spectators at the back with a friendly "My man!" And crushing a can of beer on his head as he proceeded to earn more than a billion dollars worldwide. Do you wonder why Warner Bros. had not already started a sequel? Let's find out.
Of course, we can now report that, according to The Hollywood Reporter a sequel to DC's biggest film is now officially underway, with the studio hiring David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, who co-wrote the first film, in pen the continuous adventures of Fishy McDudebro. And yes, the original director James Wan will return to oversee things as a producer, although if he returns to the director's seat he is still in the air. But it does not explain why it took so long – and even Warner Bros. highlighted a spin-off based on fish monsters that screech like five minutes of the first film in the meantime – to start a second film. Of course, we can pretend it's because both Warner Bros. and DC are pretty scared to rush to something too fast after the impetuous decisions surrounding Justice League and previous films that almost took the DCEU . But it seems much more amusing to speculate without a backstage foundation of a sentient Warner Bros. and their unconventional ways:

His identical brother turns to him, a silly smile on his face. "Oh yes, buddy, I'm a friend of water!" She chuckles, emitting a shrill laughter, not unlike Paris Hilton reading a comic book Cathy . His face becomes serious. "But first, let's finish playing Red Dead Redemption 2 ."
"For sure, hermano!" He snatches those Doritos and let's get him! I'll call someone in a few hours and start the sequel to that movie. "The brothers take their controllers and turn their attention to the big screen in front of them, as the plastic bag that kept them consumed recently hallucinogenic hovers on the floor, a small sticker placed in the lower left corner remaining invisible: " Attention: the effects will last about two months ."
