Aquaman cut a scene because director thought it was too "weird"

Aquaman director James Wan has described a scene from co-writer Will Beall’s original script that was cut from the film for being too “out-there”.

Speaking to Collider, Wan laid out the scene, which featured Aquaman (Jason Momoa) having been captured by King Orm (Patrick Wilson) and trapped in a prison guarded by sharks.

“He had a really quirky out-there [sequence]… it wasn’t the studio, it was me that said, ‘I don’t know if we can have that in there, that’s a bit weird’,” Wan explained.

“As much as I loved it. He had this sequence where… Aquaman has been apprehended by King Orm and he’s been thrown into this dungeon. Like this really awful prison deep in Atlantis.

“He ends up starting a prison riot, where all the guards are sharks. They were shark-guards, like all shark head…” he continued.

The director then went on to describe the even crazier part of the scene, which sees Aquaman, aka Arthur Curry, escape with “clouds of blood billowing everywhere”.

Wan continued: “He kills one of the shark guards and the shark starts bleeding and then that starts a feeding frenzy among all the other shark guards. It just went nuts.

“We’re talking like clouds of blood billowing everywhere and he uses that to escape. I was like, ‘Holy crap, I don’t know if I can do that’.”

Wan also recently opened up about why Aquaman didn’t include any mention of Arthur’s experience in the Justice League, explaining that he wanted to make a “standalone” film.

“People ask me why and I’m like: ‘Listen, you guys have so many movies to do with Superman and Batman and all that already. Let’s give this guy his time in the limelight’,” he said. “This is his opportunity.”

Aquaman hits theaters on December 21.
