While Aquaman is informed by the events of Justice League, this is Arthur Curry’s story to tell. And many working on the film have explained in the past not to expect any other characters from DC’s roster to pop up in the movie. However, that doesn’t mean that those involved, especially, wouldn’t want DC heroes to appear in an Aquaman sequel. And main lead Jason Momoa already has an idea which of his Justice League buddies he’d want to show up in a potential follow-up to James Wan’s DC film.
In an interview with Collider, Jason Momoa named both the Fastest Man Alive and the Woman of Wonder as the DC heroes he would want to see pop up in an Aquaman follow-up, though a far as Ezra Miller’s Flash is concerned, Momoa admitted that it would be tricky to just have him show up:
“I love Flash. I absolutely love Ezra. He’s like family to me, so just to have him on set…but you can’t have Flash come strolling through the set. It doesn’t work. I think Wonder Woman would be pretty rad, too. Flash and Wonder Woman would be my first two. I don’t want to pick one so I’ll pick two.”
Well, if you want to have Barry Allen mess around with the timeline, you could potentially get both Flash and Wonder Woman to appear with Aquaman. Albeit, Themyscira and Atlantis would be going to war, and perhaps Barry wants to wait before starting a Flashpoint turn of events. Plus, Diana already has an idea of Arthur Curry’s honesty based on his run-in with the Lasso of Truth in Justice League, so she probably wouldn’t be opposed to somehow popping up in Arthur Curry’s neck of the woods.
Still, though, should Aquman end up as a financial and critical success, coupled with both Jason Momoa and James Wan stating in the past that they’ve floated around ideas for a sequel, it’s entirely possible that, even for a moment, other characters from the DC Extended Universe could make a brief appearance in an Aquaman follow-up.
What do you think, though? Would you want to see cameos from other DC heroes in an Aquaman sequel? Are Flash and Wonder Woman the ones you would want to see? Other choices? Or should an Aquaman story focus strictly on Aquaman-related characters? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
Aquaman will swim into U.S. shores this Friday.
