The Trench

Speaking with THR, producer Peter Safran revealed the Trench spinoff movie “will come out significantly before Aquaman 2.”

We always, even from the early concept art days, loved the idea of a Trench movie. Then, when audiences embraced it in the movie itself the way they did, particularly that ant farm shot where the camera follows the Trench [creatures] following Arthur and Mera down into the deep, we just knew that we had something very special there and we knew what that movie should be. And consequently, I suspect that that’s one that will come out significantly before Aquaman 2.

I had no idea Duncan Jones was working on a Rogue Trooper movie. That’s some pretty goddamn cool news there.

I wouldn’t mind 2000 AD being turned into a sort of anti-MCU. A bunch of kickass movies that technically take place in the same universe, but are in no way connected to each other.
