Answer Aquaman’s bat signal? As Jason Momoa starts filming his upcoming Aquaman: The Lost Kingdom movie, he has fans theorizing about which fellow DC Universe heroes could lend a hand.
“REUNITED Bruce” [Wayne] and Arthur [Curry],” the Game of Thrones alum, 42, captioned Thursday, July 28, Instagram snap with ben Affleck, referring to their DC characters. “I love you and miss you, Ben.”
In the behind-the-scenes photo, the two men posed for the camera on set. While Momoa was clearly not in costume as the underwater hero, the 49-year-old argo director donned a tight-fitting dark suit that resembled his earlier outfits as the illustrious Bruce Wayne.
“WB studio tours just got a good look at the backlot,” Momoa added in his social media post. “Caught on set, all the great things are coming” AQUAMAN 2 all my aloha j.”
While neither Momoa nor the Massachusetts native have publicly confirmed Affleck’s involvement in the upcoming sequel, Dune actor teased that he was back at work.
“I’m back on set [but] I can’t tell you what I’m doing,” Momoa said in an Instagram Story video from Thursday, as he toured his trailer. “It’s top secret.”
He added: “All I can say is thank you to one of my favorite manufacturing companies for having me and looking after the environment [by eliminating bottles with single-use plastic] because I can’t say much more. But good things are happening.”
Despite Momoa trying to be inconspicuous on set, Momoa soon ran into fans on a Warner Bros. lottery tour. ‘Well, it’s no longer a king’s secret, is it? That’s what happens, Warner Bros., when you leave your set and there are our fans,” he added via Story footage. “Well, we tried to keep it a secret.”
The Hawaii native — who shares Lola, 15, and Nakoa-Wolf, 13, with an estranged woman Lisa Bonet — further sparked speculation about Affleck’s reunion after he walked into a trailer labeled “BA”. At a glance, fans could see the Good Will Hunting actor – who married Jennifer Lopez earlier this month – sitting on a couch in a fitted suit.
“I am lost. Oops sorry BA, I’ve never worked here before,” Momoa captioned his clip after barging into the trailer unannounced.
The sweet girl star — which has since been linked to Eiza Gonzalez amid his divorce from the 54-year-old Cosby show alum – first played Arthur Curry / Aquaman in the 2018 film of the same name. He reprized his superhero cloak in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League and Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
Affleck, for his part, took over the role of the Caped Crusader in 2016 Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before returning for five DCEU films, including: Zack Snyder’s Justice League to collaborate.
“It was real Justice League that was the low point for me,” the Tender Bar star told The Los Angeles Times in an interview earlier this year about his “terrible” time on set. “That was a bad experience due to a combination of things: my own life, my divorce [from Jennifer Garner]be gone too much, the competing agendas and then [director] Zack’s Personal Tragedy [after his daughter died by suicide in 2017] and the re-recording. It was just the worst experience. It was horrible.”
Next Justice League, Affleck also stopped directing the batterin which Matt Reeves took over later. Robert Pattinson ultimately suited as the masked hero in the 2021 film.
“I looked at it and thought: I’m not going to be happy about this. The person doing this should love it.” Affleck recalled during the January interview with the Los Angeles-based newspaper. “You’re supposed to always want these things, and I probably would have loved to do it when I was 32 or something. But it was the point where I started to realize it wasn’t worth it. It’s just a great benefit of refocusing and refocusing your priorities that I felt more comfortable when it was more about the experience.”
