On today’s show, we talk the final marketing push of Wonder Woman, where James Wan’s Aquaman could fit in the DCEU timeline, and DC TV news for Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow.
Wonder Woman news

EP Charles Roven believes Aquaman will take place after Justice League – CinemaBlend
- “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.”
- “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.”
- Still likely to be flashbacks/earlier scenes
