Wonder Woman and the Flash

The two characters that Jason Momoa said he would want to see in a sequel to Aquaman are Wonder Woman and the Flash, according to Screen Rant. We have to agree that these two members of the Justice League would make an excellent addition to a sequel. At the same time, it would help tie in the larger DCEU in a way that could be organic.

We loved the way Aquaman played off of Wonder Woman and the Flash in Justice League. In fact, these three characters were the highlight of the movie and made it clear that there was some hope for the extended universe. And now that we have seen Aquaman’s solo adventure, we think bringing in some of the other heavy hitters makes sense.

According to Jason Momoa during his interview with Collider, there is no way that the Flash could just make a cameo appearance. Instead, he would need a bigger role. And there was no way he could just choose one person, which is why he also mentioned Wonder Woman, and as someone with a unique history of her own, she would likely fit right in to a story about the King of Atlantis.

Superman and/or Green Lantern

Two other members of the Justice League we would not mind seeing appear in an Aquaman sequel are Superman or the Green Lantern. While the Green Lantern has yet to make a return to the big screen (we don’t talk about that one time with Ryan Reynolds), it could be a great way to reintroduce this character to a new audience.

And when it comes to Superman, we love the idea of seeing these two heroes work together again. In Justice League, they didn’t really have enough time to truly connect and get to know each other, so having the Man of Steel pop up in a sequel could be their chance to prove they have a connection that matters.

If you are wondering why I paired these two characters together as one option, it stems from their origins. Both Green Lantern and Superman are both protectors with origins not of this Earth. And while there are human Green Lanterns, many of them are aliens sworn to protect the galaxy, while Superman has sworn to protect the people of Earth.
