At the beginning of this whole DC Extended Universe deal, Warner Bros. seemed ready to throw in the entire kitchen sink into their films. In addition to the titular stars of Batman v Superman, it also featured Wonder Woman in a sizable role, with others like The Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg popping in to set up Justice League.
However, audiences didn’t really seem to enjoy that a whole lot. Now, that’s not to say they don’t enjoy the idea of a bunch of superheroes popping in and out of movies — Avengers: Infinity War proved that — but it was clear that Warners didn’t do the groundwork required to get audiences to care about what was going on. The studio seems to have realized this, as evidenced by Aquaman, which features virtually no connections to the DCEU at-large.
But that doesn’t necessarily mean things will stay that way forever. When asked by Collider who he’d want to see show up in the sequel, Momoa answered:
“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.”
Personally, I’d love to see more interaction between The Flash and Aquaman. The two are so incredibly different, and seeing them having to work together would be a lot of fun. That being said, they have to be careful. Just because one film works doesn’t mean it gives them permission to throw in a bunch of other unnecessary elements (for an example of how that can ruin a film, see Iron Man 2).
But what do you think? Who would you like to see show up in Aquaman 2, assuming the first film does well enough to warrant a sequel? Sound off down below!
