After Wonder Woman and Justice League this year, the next installment of the DCEU is set to be the Jason Momoa-led Aquaman film directed by James Wan. But, since Wonder Woman acts a period piece within the confines of the cinematic universe, the fans have been left wondering where other future films fit into the timeline.
Well, today, we have received some clarification on that front from executive producer Charles Roven who has confirmed, in an interview with Cinema lend, that the events in Aquaman will occur after Justice League as he said the following:
“Aquaman will make reference [to Justice League], there will be some reference of something that preceded Aquaman that will be in Aquaman. I believe that is the intention,”
Roven continued, “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 Batman v Superman and Justice League, but we can do movies that take place after Justice League and we can do movies that precede Justice League.”
I don’t know about you guys but I fully expect something in Justice League to affect the world’s oceans, causing massive distrust between man and atlantean.
