According to new rumours online, the two characters will be seen very briefly in the movie, setting up the Justice League and standalone adventures.
Heroic Hollywood are reporting that Batman will stumble upon footage of the two heroes in the movie: “In the movie, there is a scene where Batman breaks deep into Lexcorp/Cadmus and manages to hack into the Lexcorp computers. Batman brings up surveillance footage on the monitors which shows… Ezra Miller’s The Flash is a blur that stops a robbery [and] Jason Momoa’s Aquaman is held prisoner in a containment chamber where we see his hand slap against the glass.”
This has led to speculation that Aquaman’s imprisonment may tie into the Suicide Squad movie somehow.
We reckon this makes sense as last June we reported on a scene that was rumoured filmed of The Flash stopping a robbery in a shop (here).
Hopefully this will also put to rest some of the complaints that there’s too many characters in this movie, as this is a clever way to introduce other Justice League characters..
