The showrunner for Grant Gustin’s The Flash has discussed the Aquaman reference that left many of us bewildered.
With The Flash‘s sixth season wrapped up, albeit prematurely, we now have time to dissect this season of the Grant Gustin series. This season of The Flash saw our heroes participating in the Crisis On Infinite Earths crossover which quite literally changed the fabric of the Arrowverse. The end of the crossover saw all of the Arrowverse heroes becoming citizens of Earth-Prime. If all of them being forced to be on Earth-Prime wasn’t enough, it was revealed that Atlantis, Aquaman’s native kingdom. was there as well.
With it being revealed that Atlantis was on Earth-Prime, fans obviously couldn’t help but wonder when we’d actually get to see Aquaman meet up with Grant Gustin and the rest of the actors from the Arrowverse. Speaking with TVLine, The Flash showrunner Eric Wallace discussed what the Atlantis reference means for the series and if we’d actually be seeing Aquaman in the series.
“I don’t know if I can get it in. I don’t think it made the cut. So I’m going to say no.”
It seems pretty clear that Aquaman won’t be making an appearance in The Flash but that doesn’t mean that Atlantis won’t be showing up. There’s plenty of potential for our team of heroes visiting Aquaman’s homeland or solving a threat there. The seventh season of Grant Gustin’s The Flash won’t be airing until 2021, so there’s plenty of time for Wallace and the other Arrowverse writers to try and see if Atlantis fits into the shared universe.

Logan Williams can be seen on Grant Gustin’s The Flash, which is getting ready for its seventh season. Here’s the official synopsis for season seven:
Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with superspeed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash. After a thrilling cliffhanger last season which saw the new Mirror Master (Efrat Dor) victorious and still-at-large in Central City, The Flash must regroup in order to stop her and find a way to make contact with his missing wife, Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton).
With help from the rest of Team Flash, which includes superheroes Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), Ralph Dibny (Hartley Sawyer), and Nash Wells (Tom Cavanagh), as well as the Flash’s adoptive father Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Meta-Attorney Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), tough cub reporter Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton) and brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk (Brandon McKnight)…Flash will ultimately defeat Mirror Master. But in doing so, he’ll also unleash an even more powerful and devastating threat on Central City: one that threatens to tear his team—and his marriage—apart.
The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton, and Hartley Sawyer as Ralph Dibny / Elongated Man.
