Once you get past the Batman v Superman part of Zack Snyder’s title, you realize that there has to be some Justice League in Dawn of Justice. And while we have heard bits and pieces about Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa) in the run up to next year’s release, we didn’t exactly know how other members of the Justice League would fit in. Until now.
This story will contain spoilers for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so if you don’t want to read details, please click over to one of our other stories!
Heroic Hollywood has a scoop for how Jason Momoa’s Aquaman and Ezra Miller’s The Flash will be featured in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. These might not be the ONLY scenes featuring the heroes, but from what that site was able to deduce, these scenes will be included. They say that Batman (Ben Affleck) will infiltrate Lexcorp at some point in the movie, and will analyze surveillance footage on monitors. He will see The Flash as "a blur that stops a robbery." As for Momoa’s Aquaman, Batman will see the hero "held prisoner in a containment chamber, where we see his hand slap against the glass."
Could this be all that we see of these heroes? That’s entirely possible. The site goes on to speculate that Aquaman being held in a containment chamber could allude to actions that will be followed up on in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. We had heard that Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) might have Aquaman’s trident in a trophy room at her headquarters, which would be an obvious indicator that she has Aquaman imprisoned. Maybe all we get out of Jason Momoa in Dawn of Justice is this quick tease, setting up his solo movie in 2018.
As for The Flash, the wording of this scoop leads me to believe that we won’t actually see Ezra Miller in character, which explains why we haven’t yet seen a still of the hero the way that we have seen Aquaman and Wonder Woman in official imagery. It’s starting to sound like there will only be a speedy blur, and fans will nod their heads and say, "Yep. Flash." Then they’ll sit back and wait for the reported The Flash movie, also in 2018.
Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has to juggle a lot of plates when it hits theaters on March 25, 2016. It has to pit Kal-El against Bruce Wayne, while possibly dealing with Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg), Doomsday, and a slew of supporting characters. There probably won’t be a ton of room for The Flash and Aquaman in the finished product, so this scoop makes sense.
