Aquaman could be related to Wonder Woman

There could be a family connection in the upcoming Justice League.

Uproxx has been taking a look at an Aquaman Easter egg that turns up in Wonder Woman when Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen) is telling Diana (Gal Gadot) about the creation of Themyscira.

As the storybook comes to life, we see the gods stand on the top of Mount Olympus, and in Poseidon’s hand is the trident that now belongs to Aquaman (or is it a quinquedent?).

In the comics, the Trident of Neptune is handed by Poseidon to the rightful ruler of Atlantis, so if he’s passed it to Aquaman at some point, that suggests he could be the child of Queen Atlanna of Atlantis and Poseidon.

If this is true, it would make him the cousin of Wonder Woman, which is the kind of family reunion we’d love to attend.

There could be another family reunion in Justice League too as it was revealed last week that Diana’s aunt, Antiope (Robin Wright), would be back in the epic team-up movie despite her death in Wonder Woman.

“And [Robin and I] got to do more in Justice League as well. As sisters as well. Kind of badass as well. We can’t say much, but…” Nielsen explained.

We’ll have to wait until Justice League is released on November 17 to find out how they bring Antiope back from the dead.

Wonder Woman is in cinemas now.
