“You just don’t know what’s going on”: Jason Momoa is Clueless Why Aquaman 2 Has Multiple Batmen

“Did they confuse it with The Batman?”: Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Gets Oscar Nomination Prediction as Marvel Believes Sequel Will Repeat History

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is coming to theatres this Christmas. Although the movie has been delayed a few times, the excitement for it is off the charts. Actor Jason Momoa is all set to reprise his role as the half-human and half-Atlantean. The upcoming sequel also received some criticism as the returning cast includes Amber Heard after fans called for her boycott.

However, the silver lining is the fact that the beloved superhero, Batman, will be seen in the film alongside Jason Momoa’s Aquaman. While Ben Affleck is the Batman most likely to show up in the final cut of the film, Jason Momoa’s recent comments might prove to be a ray of hope for fans of Michael Keaton’s Batman.

Back in July 2022, Jason Momoa shared a photo with Ben Affleck where the two posed happily for the camera. The photo was accompanied by a caption that stated that Bruce and Arthur had “REUNITED” and that great things were coming in Aquaman 2. The lead actor also stated that Affleck’s return was “just hugs and kisses.”

However, Momoa talked to The Wrap at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival about the Batman cameo in Aquaman 2 and the confusion surrounding the film just got increased by a notch. According to Momoa, he has no idea what the end product of the sequel is going to look like as well as which Batman shows up.

I shot with a couple different Batmans, but you just don’t know what’s going on and we’ll see what the end product is.”

The See actor’s coy reply has sparked suspicion that there could be either Affleck or Michael Keaton (or both?) who will be donning the Batman cape again. This comes after Momoa talked to AP Entertainment last year about having multiple Batmen in the movie.

Well, I can’t tell you anything about the reunion. [Affleck] may or may not be in [Aquaman 2] and there could be more or less, or even more Batmans in it. Who knows? You can only know a little bit.”

With just a little under a year left for the film’s release, the uncertainties just seem to be taking the fans’ excitement to an all-new level.  Whatever the fate of Batman is in Aquaman 2, Keaton’s Batman is all set to reprise his role in The Flash which will be released on June 23, 2023. Who knows, maybe this movie could clear things up a bit for the Aquaman sequel.

On a lighter note, one fan-favorite character is definitely returning to the screens – the drumming octopus. Momoa stated that while the octopus is returning, his scene is one of the funniest in the entire film. We can’t wait to see what the sequel will turn out to be like!

In the same interview, Momoa talked about how excited he was for his future in the DC Universe stating that he is feeling really good about it. There were rumors that Aquaman would be gone for good after The Lost Kingdom. However, Momoa seemingly put an end to those speculations. He also hints towards playing other characters.

[I’m feeling] really f**king good. Aquaman’s not going anywhere so it’s alright. Everything’s gonna be good, we’re still here and then I might be dipping into some other things too.”

The “other things” could possibly include the much-rumored Lobo project. Momoa’s reassurance does come at a much-needed time when fans are absolutely unsure about what’s going on at the DCU. Guess we’ll just have to trust his words for now.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will be released on December 25, 2023.
