Exactly. Namor did all this "trouble with the surface world" and "disenfranchised king" stuff years ago, and with much more gravitas. It's a real shame that there's no Sub-Mariner comic out nowadays, I used to devour those as a lad. Aquaman only started to pique my interest around the time Peter David took over, and that was a much more Namor-lite type of book. Great stuff mind ya, but Namor-lite.For a long time they were trying to make Aquaman more like Namor ever since at least the 80s if i recall.
Which is still miles better than what Geoff Johns is doing to him right now.
Strong directors can pick producers and vice versa, and Mathew Vaughn is more a career producer and writer than director. And he doesn't do sequels (he passed on directing the sequel to Kick-Ass) and is reportedly working on a different project with Mark Millar.
Vaughn also wrote the treatment for X-Men: Days of Future Past, and my guess he'll let Bryan Singer helm it because Vaughn has the hot-right-now buzz to choose his projects and Singer is probably begging for work after his lousy record as a filmmaker. With First Class, Vaughn probably realized he should take advantage of his leverage that resulted in Fox accidentally making a good movie.
He probably figures Fox's cheap take on its trove of Marvel characters is the norm and can make more money doing something else. Singer has a little 'ol following and he'll probably work for Fox for peanuts by now.

Steve Carrell brought a gravitas to the Aquaman character that clearly put him thousands of leagues ahead of the Submareeeeenerrrr!

Where does Star Wars now factor it this? I'd assume it would be a summer movie but with Avengers & Justice League. That's a busy summer.

I was never into the PAD or Kurt Busiek version of Aquaman. I much prefer the Silver age Aquaman and the current iteration.
