Arthur Curry And Bruce Wayne Are Working Together Again, And Jason Momoa Reveals That Justice League costar Ben Affleck will appear in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
Momoa revealed the news on Instagram on Thursday, after fans of a Warner Bros. bus tour apparently got wind that Affleck was there filming with him.
Affleck previously announced his retirement as Batman in 2019 and has been open about the personal and professional struggles that have come with the role. So it came as a surprise two years ago when it became known that Affleck was again suitable for The flashthe Ezra Miller movie starring June 23, 2023, which will also star Michael Keaton as Batman.
This was believed to be Affleck’s last time in the role, but now he’s set to return sooner with Lost Kingdom arrival March 17, 2023.
Affleck played Batman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, suicide squad and Justice League. At some point he would direct and star the batter before stepping back.
“I showed someone the Batman script,” Affleck told The New York Times in 2020. “They said, ‘I think the script is good. I also think you’re drinking yourself to death if you’re going through what you’ve just been through.’”
the batter eventually went on to star Robert Pattinson and was directed by Matt Reeves. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdomcomes from filmmaker James Wan, meanwhile.
