No, ‘Aquaman’ Does Not Have A ‘Justice League’ Plot Hole

A few moments in Aquaman appear to contradict events in Justice League, but upon further reflection, they actually don’t.

2017’s Justice League went through a few production hiccups before it hit the big screen. Heavy reshoots and a two-hour runtime mandate caused a few moments in the film to feel rushed. This may cause some confusion on a few levels for fans flocking out to see Aquaman this weekend. In the film, an important aspect of the story revolves around Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) visiting Atlantis for the first time.

This may seem strange to fans because, as CBR pointed out in a recent article, Justice League has a major set piece that takes place in Atlantis. The reason that Arthur seems like a newcomer to Atlantis in Aquaman is that it actually is his first time visiting. The fight scene in Justice League involving Steppenwolf abducting the Atlantean Motherbox actually does not take place in Atlantis. It’s a very easy fact to forget given that so much is going on during Justice League but James Wan admitted that he specifically requested Zack Snyder not reveal Atlantis during his film.

It also explains why the area seen in Justice League looks drastically different from the bright, vibrant city of Atlantis shown in Aquaman. This also explains why Arthur and King Orm (Patrick Wilson), Arthur’s Atlantean half-brother, have never met before the events of Aquaman.
