With Wonder Woman's release just a week away, fans have started for figure out how the Patty Jenkins-led origin story will fit into the grander scheme of the DCEU. However, Aquaman's solo outing, set to release on Christmas of next year, is still a bit of a mystery.
Recently, DC films executive producer Charles Roven revealed just how Arthur Curry's adventure will tie into the upcoming Justice League film.
While speaking with CinemaBlend, Roven said that there would be some definite ties between the two.
Roven went on in his description about the greater DCEU, and how the filmmakers aren't holding themselves back in the slightest. With Aquaman taking place after Justice League, and Wonder Woman acting as a bit of a prequel, the creative team is willing to go in any direction possible with these films.
James [Wan] definitely knows where he's going with Aquaman, and that movie takes place in a world where Justice League happened, and Man of Steel happened, and Wonder Woman obviously takes place before Man of Steel -- except for the bookends we have. So that's where we have the most ability to freeform. We could do a movie that takes place after Justice League, we can do a movie that takes place after Batman v Superman... well not really. You can't do a movie in between BvS and Justice League, but we can do movies that take place after Justice League and we can do movies that precede Justice League.
There may have been some problems in the past, but the DCEU looks to be running into the right direction.
In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder, from a screenplay by Chris Terrio, based on a story by Snyder and Terrio, and stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Willem Dafoe, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
