Jason Momoa Accidentally Reveals Ben Affleck Will Return as Batman in ‘Aquaman 2’
Reunited and it feels so good! Jason Momoa spilled the news on his Instagram today (July 29) that his pal Ben Affleck is suiting up as Batman once more for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
“REUNITED bruce and arthur,” Momoa wrote along with two photos of him and Affleck. “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.”
In the last part of his carousel, Momoa included a video from Warner Bros. studio tours and said, “Well, it’s not a f—ing secret anymore, is it? Sorry, children,” waving to the children in front, laughing. “That’s what happens, Warner Bros. when you walk out of your set… and there’s our fans.”
“Well, we tried to keep it a secret,” he said as he walked to a trailer that had “B.A.” posted on the door. “Well, here we go.” We then see Ben sitting on a couch looking as though he was taking a phone call and signaled for Momoa to give him a minute, which he then leaves immediately.
Affleck played Bruce Wayne/Batman in 2016’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice, 2017’s superhero mashup Justice League and also made a cameo in 2016’s Suicide Squad. Details on how big Affleck’s role will be in the Aquaman sequel is still unclear. He’s also set to appear in the upcoming Flash film. TheAquaman film is set to hit theaters on March 17. The rest of the cast includes Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Dolph Lundgren, Nicole Kidman, Randall Park and others.
