‘Aquaman’ Sequel Director Addresses Batman Cameo Rumors

After Jason Mamoa’s cameo in ‘The Flash’ as his Justice League counterpart Aquaman alongside three versions of Batman, speculation ran amuck that the Dark Knight would also appear in the sequel ‘Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom.’ Largely seen as the finale to the original DCEU film franchise, it is not a leap in logic that other characters will appear in ‘Aquaman 2.’

Director James Wan discusses the rumor in an interview with Entertainment Weekly where he played coy about the possibility of various Batman actors making appearances.

“The tricky thing early on was not knowing whether Aquaman would come out first or come out after [The Flash],” Wan said. “So, we just had to be prepared. At the end of the day, the best thing I would say about this movie is that it is not connected in any way to any of those films. That’s the bottom line.”

“That’s a ‘no comment,’ right now,” ‘The Conjuring’ director added. “You’re going to have to wait for the movie to come out.”

Asked about reshoots happening around the movie, Wan downplayed it, explaining them as actor scheduling conflicts that affected the filming.

“We have big actors in this movie, and everyone’s schedule is really hard,” Wan acknowledged. “So, we had to break up our shooting schedule into sections. We’ll shoot a bit here now, because this actor’s available, and then we’ll do another shoot now, because this guy’s available. People are like, ‘Oh, they’re doing a whole bunch of different shoots!’ No. If we actually combined them all together, it’s actually not that many number of days at all.”

Besides Mamoa, the film also stars Patrick Wilson, Amber Heard, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Dolph Lundgren, Randall Park, Temuera Morrison, and Nicole Kidman reprising their roles from the first film.

The film is set to premiere on December 20, 2023.
