The Flash Pilot Originally Had an Aquaman Easter Egg
It's not nearly as overkill as, say, Gotham, but The Flash references many heroes from the DC Comics universe, from the mural devoted to the Justice League to name-dropping Green Lantern's Ferris Air. But as it turns out, the pilot originally indulged in one more DC Comics Easter egg, as a deleted scene contains a thinly veiled reference to Aquaman.

Here's the deleted scene, via EW:



In the video, Joe West is admonishing Barry for leaving work to follow thin leads on metahumans. Barry insists that he has a legitimate investigation in mind, and Joe grumbles that he recently left work to look into "a man who could talk to fish." Barry is sufficiently humbled, but he shouldn't be, because he's clearly talking about Aquaman. 

Does this mean that we will see Aquaman show up at some point? Not necessarily, as we haven't even seen Green Lantern yet, and between Wally West, Jay Garrick, and Jesse Quick, season two is already chock-full of new DC superheroes. Plus, they likely deleted this scene for a reason, although it could have simply been because there was a lot of unnecessary exposition about Barry's emotional arc.

The Flash season returns on October 6 at 8pm on The CW.
