Ben Affleck to return as the Batman in Jason Momoa’s Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom

Jason Momoa’s Aquaman was a massive box office success when it came out back in 2018 and fans were fairly impressed with the DCEU movie. The sequel has had a lot of positive and negative attention on it since it was announced and now it is confirmed that Ben Affleck will reprise his role as Batman in the movie. 

Batfleck as Affleck’s Batman is known among the fans, is a version of The Caped Crusader that fans have enjoyed seeing on screen. The news, which was kept as a secret, came to light after some people on the Warner Bros. tour walked onto the actors. Momoa later took to Instagram to announce the news with the fans and also shared a few photos with Affleck and a fun video he took with the unsuspecting members of the tour. 

“REUNITED bruce and arthur. love u and miss u Ben WB studio tours just explored the backlot alright. busted on set all great things coming AQUAMAN 2 all my aloha j,” Momoa wrote on the Instagram post. 

Affleck is already confirmed to appear in DCEU’s The Flash starring Ezra Miller, which will also see Michael Keaton don the cape and cowl once again, playing an alternate version of The Dark Knight. The actor has previously played Batman in 1989's Batman and 1992's Batman Returns. 

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom has director James Wan returning to helm the sequel, which also stars Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Temuera Morrison, and Nicole Kidman. There is still no clarity about Heard’s role in the sequel, following the backlash after her public trial against Johnny Depp. 

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is currently scheduled to hit theatres on March 17, 2023.
