Many reports have stated that Micheal Keaton was originally supposed to appear in Aquaman 2 instead of Ben Affleck. But now after Jason Momoa shared the infamous picture on his Instagram account, fans have been left confused but elated.

Michael Keaton appeared as Batman in the Tim Burton movies back in 1989 and 1992. Recently he was set to take on the role again after over 30 years in The Flash movie. He is supposed to play a key role in the movie and also explains how he appears in the current DCEU timeline.

The decision on including Ben Affleck as Batman rather than Micheal Keaton may have been wiser, as Affleck is the more familiar face for the Caped Crusader to the current generation than Micheal Keaton.

However, if Keaton’s Batman appears in Aquaman 2, it won’t be the first time in DCEU that a character has been included in the movie without any context. Previously Aquaman, Flash, and Cyborg made similar appearances in Dawn of Justice.

Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom is set to hit the theatres on March 17, 2023.
