How Zack Snyder Got Rid Of Joss Whedon's Influence From 'Aquaman'
Aquaman is one of DC's biggest hits.
It's only one of two movies in the DC Extended Universe with a “Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
It's also made the most money.
Aquaman‘s success is due largely to director James Wan, and, surprisingly, Zack Snyder.
Actor Neil Daly oversaw the test screenings for both Justice League and Aquaman.
He told Uptoxx that Snyder worked with Wan to shift the character of Arthur Curry away from how Joss Whedon wrote him in Justice League.
Daly said Whedon's version of Aquaman was terrible.
Daly said Whedon's sole, meager contribution to Aquaman was a hero who drooled over Mera and made lame, dirty jokes.
Daly revealed that Wan showed Snyder cuts of the film, early test screenings, and storyboards to make sure that they’re on the same page.
