Aquaman director James Wan says his film will not feature any crossover with other Justice League characters.
“I wanted to keep the story to the world of Aquaman and not have to worry about what other characters are doing in their films and how that would affect us. I just thought the simplest way was to keep it clean — keep it simple and let it be an Aquaman story," Wan told Entertainment Weekly.
Wan previously told EW that Aquaman is set in the DC film Universe, but the story is its own self-contatined entity.
“I told them I understand and respect that it’s part of a bigger universe but at the end of the day I have to tell the story I want to tell, and I want to develop the character as well. It was something the studio was respectful about,” Wan previously explained. "In my movie he starts off one way and becomes very different by the end. It’s a classic hero’s journey. I equate our story to The Sword and the Stone, it’s a very Arthurian story about a journey to becoming king.”
Aquaman is due out in theaters December 21.
