WARNING: MINOR SPOILER FROM THE AQUAMAN FILM
Before taking the reigns of DC’s Aquaman, James Wan had kicked off one of the most successful horror franchises to date, the Conjuring universe. The first film of that franchise directed by Wan was released in July of 2013 titled The Conjuring. It starred Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson, who also stars in Aquaman. During the beginning of the film we see that the couple was adding a new addition to their trophy room, the possessed doll Annabelle.
But it looks like someone had tired to get rid of Annabelle once in for all, because according to Cinemablend the doll has been spotted in the upcoming Aquaman film at the bottom of the ocean. She can be spotted very briefly in an early scene of the film where Arthur Curry, played by Jason Momoa and Mera, played by Amber Heard, are entering her ship on a mission. Cinemablend asked Wan about the cameo during a recent press day event for Aquaman.
“I don’t know what you are referring to. [laughs] I have no idea what Easter Egg you are referencing here, if it’s an Easter egg. … Maybe Patrick Wilson is really Ed Warren pretending to be King Orm? What can I say? I’d like to see that film, how about that?” Said Wan.
Of course he is not going to want to give anything away, but it will be a really cool Easter egg to see the possessed doll in the Aquaman film. They also asked Wilson about Anabelle who apparently did not know that she had been included. But he laughed at the idea of the DCEU and the Conjuring universe sharing space. Could there be more Conjuring Easter eggs in Aquaman? Will Annabelle terrorize Atlantis? We’ll have to wait and see in a few weeks.
