The news cycle for the last 24 hours at San Diego Comic-Con has been dominated by whether or not Ben Affleck is going to step away from his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman. No one anticipates that story being resolved anytime soon but it appears DC might just have a strategy to quell all this Affleck/Batman hysteria. Check out what Jason Momoa posted last night on social media.
For starters, Momoa seems to let slip that we will be seeing some form of a teaser trailer for Aquaman. The part that sticks out to me is where he talks about knowing something big. Also, take note of the photo he used when posting this to Instagram. Could we be getting some sort of casting announcement? Think about Marvel did last year as SDCC. The announcement of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel was easily one of the biggest stories to come out of last years Comic-Con. What better way to take everyone’s mind off of the Affleck/Batman story than to make some sort of big casting announcement.
What do you think the announcement will be? Personally, it would be shocking if we didn’t find out today who was playing Green Lantern. It would give the fans something to go crazy about and take the spotlight off of the whole Batman controversy.
