Now the director james wan who is preparing the sequel to the 2018 hit titled Aquaman and the Lost Kingdomhas revealed that he will use all those ideas he had for the horror spin-off about The Trench.
“I feel like whatever I come up with, whatever I do, if I come up with something that I don’t end up using, that doesn’t mean I can’t be inspired to use it in a different way. That’s my problem, I come up with so many ideas and I have so many ideas that are leaking out, but obviously, I can’t use them all.”
“So I would say that of all the different thoughts and ideas that I came up with, I end up using maybe 20-30% of them in my work and I have a drawer full of ideas that could become something else.”
So The Trench may be important in the sequel.
