Ben Affleck will return as Batman/Bruce Wayne in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, according to Jason Momoa. In Justice League (2021), Affleck played Batman, and he will appear alongside Michael Keaton in The Flash.
In Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, Ben Affleck will return to his role as Batman due to scheduling conflicts that called for a change in plans.Both The Flash and Aquaman 2 will now debut in 2023 instead of this year as originally planned.
The merging of Warner Bros. Discovery and Ezra Miller’s and Amber Heard’s challenging performances are most likely to blame for the delay. On March 17, 2023, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will make its debut, three months before The Flash.
Test audiences were perplexed when Michael Keaton made a brief appearance in Aquaman 2 because he was supposed to be in The Flash.
As a result, Ben Affleck came back. The report has been confirmed by Grace Randolph and KC Walsh, although caution is advised. Ben Affleck’s stern, powerful Batman has no plans for the DCEU, especially now that the Snyder Verse has been dropped.
Robert Pattinson will play a younger Batman in the television series The Batman. Michael Keaton will portray an elderly Batman in the canonical DC universe.
The Flash will undoubtedly serve as a prelude to Ben Affleck’s comeback and exit in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
