According to Yahoo! News and The Independent, "Jason Momoa has revealed that the forthcoming Aquaman sequel filmed scenes with a multitude of Batman actors.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is set to premiere in movie theaters toward the end of 2023.

Various reports have suggested that "Michael Keaton is set to reprise the role of Bruce Wayne, aka Batman, which he last inhabited back in 1992’s Batman Returns," revealed journalist Louis Chilton of The Independent. "Keaton also filmed scenes for the forthcoming DC Comics adaptation, The Flash."

In his conversation with The Wrap, Momoa confirmed that Aquaman 2 had included multiple Batman actors during production, though he declined to say exactly who. “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,” he teased.

"The former Game of Thrones star previously shared a picture with Ben Affleck on the set of Aquaman 2," wrote Chilton, "...suggesting that Affleck would be returning as the iteration of Bruce Wayne seen in Batman vs Superman and Justice League."

In the interview, Momoa also addressed his future with DC Comics, "amid speculation," said Chilton, that he might not play Aquaman again. “Aquaman’s not going anywhere so it’s alright,” he relayed. "Everything’s gonna be good, we’re still here and then I might be dipping into some other things too.”

DC Studios is presently experiencing what Chilton termed "a radical creative upheaval," following The Suicide Squad director James Gunn and producer Peter Safran's installations as co-chairpersons and CEOs.

"Among the changes announced by Gunn and Safran was the departure of Henry Cavill as Superman, a decision which prompted mixed reactions from the franchise’s fans," Chilton concluded. "It has been speculated that Momoa may be cast as the DC character Lobo in a forthcoming project, creating uncertainty around his future as Aquaman."
