    In ‘The Flash‘ both Michael Keaton’s Batman and Ben Affleck’s variant were supposed to meet. However, the movie is facing a delay due to the lead Ezra Miller. ‘Aquaman 2’ was set to release after ‘The Flash’ with Michael Keaton playing the role of Batman in the movie. Now due to the delay in the release date of ‘The Flash,’ DC has decided to completely chuck Keaton’s cameo appearance. So the question is who will play Batman then?

    According to insider KC Walsh, Ben Affleck will be playing Batman in the upcoming Jason Momoa movie. The insider said that the recent news of Ben Affleck joining the Aquaman sequel is the result of the studio “replacing the Michael Keaton scenes” that were once in the movie “with Affleck”. He also said, “Looks like they are replacing the Keaton scenes with Affleck, remember #AquamanAndTheLostKingdom was originally supposed to come out after The Flash and [test] audiences were confused by his inclusion.”
