While we were (That's a lot of "w"'s) lead to believe 'The Flash' film would be an origin story for the hero after his introduction in '[Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice](tag:711870)' and 'Justice League: Part One', that seems to not be the case.
Producer Charles Rover spoke to The Wall Street Journal and revealed both 'Aquaman' and 'The Flash' will continue the stories of the characters from where they left off in 'Justice League':
“While each movie stands alone, they’re all part of one long arc of storytelling,”
WSJ also revealed details about screenwriter Chris Terrio's commitment to the storytelling:
"He studied red- and blueshifts in electromagnetic physics to think about the Flash, investigated deep sea biology in the Mariana trench to create the world of Aquaman, and read the Greek historian Diodorus of Sicily’s account of the war between Amazon and Atlantis to better understand Wonder Woman."
Chris Terrio said of his work:
“If you told me the most rigorous dramaturgical and intellectual product of my life would be superhero movies, I would have said you were crazy,”
Does this rev up your excitement for DC's cinematic future or would you have preferred origin stories in these two heroes' individual films?
