So just which incarnation of Aquaman will splash on to the big screen? The clean- cut, porpoiseriding golden boy of the Silver Age? The scuzzier, hook- handed anti- hero of the ’ 90s?

Ah, creative differences. Where would we be without them? Watching Shawn Levy’s Goonies- style take on Minecraft, that’s where. The Night At The Museum helmer has dropped out of the movie adaptation of the monstrously addictive videogame – and he’s taken writers Kieran and Michele Mulroney with him. “Warners asked me to develop how
