Deadline has reached out to Warner Bros for more details on Affleck’s bat return.
He recently played Bruce Wayne/Batman in the 2017 superhero mashup Justice League (and in Zack Snyder’s Director’s Cut from last year) and in 2016 suicide squad. The double Oscar winner played the dual role in 2016 Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and its resumption is planned for next year The flash. Momoa played Aquaman in batman versus superman and Justice League.
It’s unclear just how important Affleck’s role will be in the upcoming Aquaman pic, which is set to hit theaters on March 17. Momoa is back as the waterlogged title hero, aka Arthur Curry, and James Wan is returning as director. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is written by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick. Plot details remain overwhelmed, but Amber Heard is back for more, alongside Patrick Wilson, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Dolph Lundgren, Nicole Kidman, Randall Park and more.
