Jason Momoa dropped a photo on Thursday which has sort of confirmed that Ben Affleck is gearing up to return as Batman to the DCEU in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. The photo has gone viral.
“REUNITED Bruce and Arthur,” Momoa wrote on Instagram yesterday, along with a photo of him and Affleck. “Love you and miss you, Ben. WB studio tours just explored the backlot alright. busted on set all great things coming AQUAMAN 2 all my aloha j.”
For those not in the know, Affleck most recently played Bruce Wayne/Batman in 2017’s superhero mashup Justice League and in 2016’s Suicide Squad.
The 2016 film 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice starred the two-time Oscar winner in a dual role. He will reprise the role in The Flash as well which debuts in cinemas next year.
Momoa played Aquaman in Batman v Superman and Justice League. The 42-year-old actor previously teased on his Instagram Story that he’s “back on set” and “can’t tell you what I’m doing” as it’s “top secret,” while promoting his Mananalu Water’s reusable aluminium bottles, which were made available in his trailer.
“All I can say is, thank you to one of my favorite production companies for having me and taking care of the environment, because I can’t say much more,” Momoa said. “But good things are happening.”
Though there is no word yet on how big Affleck’s role is going be in Aquaman 2, fans are really excited about the possibility of his return.
“I can’t explain how happy it makes me! Ben Affleck, please know how much you are LOVED as BATMAN !!!!! @BenAffleck I can’t wait to see you in Aquaman 2!!!! Hopefully for more as well!!!!,” said one fan.
“Ben Affleck is gonna be in AQUAMAN 2 as Bruce Wayne once again? Music to my ears,” wrote another.
“Ben Affleck being back as Batman once again proves he loves the role. The news is awesome about Aquaman 2, but an announcement with Ray Fisher reprising his role as Cyborg in The Flash would be even bigger to me,” wrote the third one.
