Ben Affleck’s role as Batman has been a bit of a chaotic one. He first played the role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before opting to step away from the role. This, however, has not stopped the actor from reprising the role in other DC Universe films.
Despite Ben Affleck saying that he was done, it was revealed in 2020 that the actor would be reprising his role as Batman for Ezra Miller’s troubled film, The Flash. Later on, he confirmed that this would be his final role as the Caped Crusader. However, it appears that he will be involved in at least one more DC Universe project before he hangs up the cape and cowl for good.
In a recent post, Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom star Jason Momoa shared a picture of himself and Ben Affleck on the set of the upcoming film. A studio tour accidentally stumbled across the fact that the Batman star was on the set for the upcoming film, with Jason Momoa’s post and Instagram story all but saying that he was there to play the role of the iconic character.
