Batman‘s Deleted Aquaman Movie Cameo
Concept artist Ed Natividad shared never-before-seen art from 2018’s Aquaman, revealing a deleted cameo from Ben Affleck’s Batman.
This art shows Batman operating his massive Knightcrawler vehicle in the streets as chaos ensues around him, showing how the Justice League would have played a role in Jason Momoa’s first solo film.
In early versions of the Aquaman script, Patrick Wilson’s Ocean Master actually finds resistance from the Justice League when he works to unite the aquatic kingdoms in his battle against the surface world.
Will Batman Return in Aquaman 2?
Keaton was first rumored to be in the film with The Flash expanding into the multiverse, but in August 2022, Momoa revealed that Affleck had worked on the film and was set for a role in the underwater sequel.
Unfortunately, dreams of appearances by either of them were crushed more recently as Aquaman 2 director James Wan firmly stated that this sequel "is not connected in any way" to other films from the DCEU.
And with this sequel being the final entry in this era of the DC Universe, only time will tell when the Caped Crusader will make his way back into the spotlight.
