One of the many DC films that are set to be released this year is Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, the sequel to the 2018 hit Aquaman, which is scheduled at the end of the year. The most interesting part about its release date is that it will be the first DCEU film to be released after The Flash which will venture into the multiverse and potentially change the course of the franchise. There are fans who have been wondering if the upcoming sequel will be affected by the Flash's multiversal adventure. Now, it looks like we have the answer.

Speaking with Collider, Patrick Wilson, who plays Orm, discussed how the upcoming sequel has found its way to fit into the DCEU multiverse even with its own "niche."

"So you take those things that you think people responded to, even if it was, "Oh my God, can you believe they did that?" Yeah, we did that. Now we're going to do more of that. I think we found our niche," Wilson said. "I think DC has found their way to understand where each movie can fit, even in a multiverse, which is so overused now, as a term. Clearly the movie went beyond a fanboy demographic, because it made whatever; billion dollars, right? So that affords you a freedom of, "You know what? Let's keep it fun. Let's make it fun."

While Wilson didn't specifically say that the events of The Flash will be affecting the events that we will see in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, he indicated that the film will still be holding on its own even if it's part of the DCEU multiverse.

The details regarding the upcoming sequel are still scarce so it's hard to speculate right now on what we might see in the film. However, based on Wilson's statements, it looks like it will still be an individual adventure and it won't have any vast connection to the rest of the DCEU regardless if The Flash will change the course of the franchise. Of course, we won't be knowing the definitive answers until we see both films later this year. Even without The Flash factor, it is already exciting to find out what they have in store for the sequel.
