Aquaman’s Timeline in the DCEU Established By Producer
We know that Wonder Woman is going to take place in World War I, but it makes us wonder where the future DCEU films will take place. With Aquaman coming up as the next film after Justice League, we don’t have any idea when that film will take place, until now.
Seeing that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice revealed that the heroes are already established, it gives Warner Bros. a chance to explore their origins or even explore their nature after their debuts. So where does that leave Aquaman? Well, producer Charles Roven explained to CinemaBlend that Aquaman would be taking place after the events of Zack Snyder’s Justice League. “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 also added that while James Wan’s Aquaman is set after Justice League, future films will go into many different periods in the DCEU timeline.
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.
What do you guys think? Should the DCEU explore the past of our heroes or remain faithful to the chronological timeline?
