Here, take this sizable grain of salt because you’ll need it for today’s latest rumor. Although Warner Bros. only recently hired screenwriter David Leslie Johnson to re-team with director James Wan on Aquaman, a new report suggests that we may already know the identity of the film’s main villain — and it’s probably not who you were expecting.

DC and Warner Bros. aren’t really following the Marvel model when it comes to their superhero cinematic universe. Instead of establishing each hero with separate solo films leading up to the first Justice League movie, WB is introducing some characters in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, while others will make their debut in Justice League.

Furious 7 is the fourth highest grossing movie of all time. Ever. In film history. Number four, after Avatar, Titanic, and The Avengers. $1.5 billion at the box office and counting.

But some of the credit also goes to James Wan, who stepped in to direct the film after longtime franchise steward Justin Lin left the series, and who managed to keep the movie and its crew together following the tragic death of star Paul Walker. He delivered a really satisfying Fast & Furious that simultaneously served as a lovely tribute to Walker. It was an incredibly difficult job, and Wan nailed it.
