AQUAMAN Won't Crossover With Other JUSTICE LEAGUE Characters ... Yet

But Aquaman, which takes place following the events of Justice League, would seem ripe for connections to the broader DC Extended Universe. Now, he explains why.

While Arthur Curry/Aquaman (Jason Momoa) made his big screen debut in last year's Justice League, the character's super-cohorts will not be showing up in his standalone film this winter, said director James Wan.

"I just thought the simplest way was to keep it clean - keep it simple and let it be an Aquaman story".

Wan previously told EW that Aquaman is set in the DC film Universe, but the story is its own self-contatined entity. It's a classic hero's journey. In what's probably a TOTAL COINCIDENCE, the outliers - Man of Steel and Wonder Woman - are the only movies with a Rotten Tomatoes score above 50 percent.

Wrong Tommy Fleetwood gets paid over US$150000 for Open Championship
Here's how Thorner thinks the mistake took place: his friend Tommy Fleetwood played briefly on the European PGA Tour. I wouldn't even know if I'd been paid or not because I don't really look.

Director Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman avoided any expectations for such cameos by setting its story in the World War II era; the sequel, Wonder Woman 1984, is similarly set in the 1980s. It was a stark contrast to the crossover-brandishing 2016 effort, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which found itself fielding a disjointed plot that was in service to planting universe-building crossover seeds, resulting in weird motivations for Ben Affleck's debuting Batman and a debut for Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman that felt tacked-on.

Aquaman also stars Amber Heard (Justice League, Magic Mike XXL) as Mera, a fierce warrior and Aquaman's ally throughout his journey; Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe (Platoon, Spider-Man 2) as Vulko, council to the Atlantean throne; Patrick Wilson (The Conjuring films, Watchmen) as Orm/Ocean Master, the present King of Atlantis; Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables films) as Nereus, King of the Atlantean tribe Xebel; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Baywatch, The Get Down) as the vengeful Black Manta; and Oscar victor Nicole Kidman (The Hours, Lion) as Arthur's mom, Atlanna.

Aquaman is due out in theaters December 21.
