Aquaman director James Wan has revealed that his DC movie has references to The Conjuring and Fast & Furious.
The first solo outing for Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry has been receiving positive early reactions, largely for its fun tone. One such playful moment comes when Aquaman and Mera (Amber Heard) head to the Sahara.
As they arrive, there’s a hint of classic power ballad ‘Africa’ by Toto and Wan told Digital Spy that it’s a nod to his work on Fast & Furious 7.
“Pitbull wrote a song just for us and it ended up in the movie. It’s almost like, I know it seems to some a little bit weird, but it’s almost like my little tribute to my Fast & Furious background,” he explained.
“Having made a Fast & Furious movie, it was kind of fun to see the characters come out of the water in slow motion with this hip hop music in the background. It was just a fun little break from the more intense stuff that had been going on leading up to that.”
But that’s not the only hint to Wan’s previous movies, as he teased that there’s a connection to The Conjuring as well – just don’t expect him to tell you what it is.
“I do have a favourite Easter egg that’s in the film that no one else has got yet. It’s something from The Conjuring universe, let’s leave it at that,” he hinted.
Aquaman also features a voice cameo from none other than Julie Andrews as Karathen, something that would probably have been a neat Easter egg if it hadn’t already been revealed.
Aquaman is released in UK cinemas on December 12 and US cinemas on December 21.
