Jason Momoa, the Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom star, teases the possibility of both Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton’s appearance in the sequel.
Jason Momoa recently shot additional footage for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, but what got DC fans off guard was the fact that Ben Affleck suited up as Bruce Wayne once more for the reshoots, sparking much speculation as to whether or not he will replace Michael Keaton as Batman in the DCEU.
Before Warner Bros. Discovery canceled Batgirl, it looked as if Michael Keaton would take over as the principal Caped Crusader of the DC Extended Universe after the release of Andy Muschietti’s superhero movie would feature Ezra Miller as the Scarlet Speedster. According to reports, Keaton was slated to star opposite Jason Momoa in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, but with Ben Affleck involved, some are questioning whether Warner Bros. is canceling Keaton’s future plans.
Jason Momoa suggested the involvement of Batman in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom during the opening of his third and last season for the AppleTV+ series See. In fact, he tells AP Entertainment that he may have hinted at the arrival of both Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton:
The release date for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom has been postponed one more until December 2023. Does this suggest that Michael Keaton will only make a single cameo in the Ezra Miller movie because it comes out after The Flash and Ben Affleck wants to play Bruce Wayne again? Or may this imply that as a result of Barry Allen’s Multiverse disruption, he might end himself stuck in the DC Extended Universe? It appears that the answer won’t be available until the following year. In any case, Jason Momoa is obviously thrilled to work with Affleck once more.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom postponed the premiere until March 17, 2023.
