Furious 7 is the fourth highest grossing film. Ever. In the history of filmaking. Only Titanic, Avengers and Avatar have made more money. A big part of the film’s success is credited to director James Wan.
This success has landed James another blockbuster to direct, this time in the form of aquatic superhero Aquaman. Aquaman has generally been considered a lame superhero and DC is looking to kill that stigma once and for all with the combined bad-assery of Jason Momoa and James Wan directing prowess.
This probably means that Wan will not be directing the Fast and Furious, at least not in the foreseeable future. Aquaman is scheduled for a release date in July 27, 2018.
