Aquaman's Place in the DCEU
In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, producer Charles Roven explained how Aquaman will fit into DC's larger story: "While each movie stands alone, they're all part of one long arc of storytelling." He clarified the timeline while chatting with Cinema Blend, saying that Aquaman isn't a Justice League prequel the way Wonder Woman is. Instead, it will take place after the events of the ensemble film, which came out in 2017. "Aquaman will make reference [to Justice League]," he revealed. "There will be some reference of something that preceded Aquaman that will be in Aquaman. I believe that is the intention."
