James Cameron loves water. Not only did he make a romance about a shipwreck, his films have had multiple liquid characters, the new Avatar sequels are partially set underwater, and he’s been involved in several deep ocean documentaries. So after he saw James Wan’s Aquaman, he had a lot of thoughts.
