Justice League stars Ray Fisher and Ben Affleck reunited in a new photo. Though it's hardly proof that the two actors are getting the band back together, so to speak, it's exciting for fan to see the DC heroes side-by-side again.
Warner Bros.' Justice League was meant to be one of many additions to the DCEU, but mediocre reviews and an underwhelming box office negatively affected these chances. As a result, its shot at a sequel is still up in the air, and Warner Bros. is reassessing its creative approach with future DC adaptations - namely with upcoming movies like Shazam!, Batgirl, and Green Lantern Corps. Now, regardless of whether or not these actors will officially return to any DC adaptations in the future, Ray Fisher and Ben Affleck still managed to reunite.
On his official Twitter account, Fisher shared an image of himself and Affleck at Celebrity Fan Fest in San Antonio, Texas. The actors were invited to the event along with Jason Momoa, who was busy promoting the upcoming release of James Wan's Aquaman. However, given their conflicting schedules, he wasn't able to meet up with his other Justice League co-stars. Still, his unavailability didn't prevent Fisher and Affleck from enjoying the convention on their own, even taking a photo together with their arms around each other. Fisher's caption for the photo mentions that the two were casually "catching up," while also doubling as an invitation for local fans to visit them at the convention.
As it so happens, this isn't the first bit of recent news revolving around cast and crew members associated with Justice League meeting up. Fisher's reunion with Affleck follows his recent run-in with Zack Snyder, which the director shared on his official Vero account. And, while these two scenarios hardly suggest that the Justice League team is staging some early prepping for a sequel, Fisher has still been vocal about his enthusiasm towards the DC cinematic universe - even going on record to say that he would love for Snyder to direct a Cyborg standalone film.
Unfortunately, the likelihood of Justice League 2 happening (or, at the very least, being directed by Snyder) is slim. Not only is Snyder no longer involved with the DCEU - apart from his producing credits on Aquaman and Wonder Woman 1984 - Warner Bros. is stepping away from Snyder's initial plans for the franchise. That said, this doesn't mean that Fisher and/or Affleck are out of the picture completely. Affleck is technically still attached to play the Caped Crusader in Matt Reeves' The Batman, so a comeback is possible. Whether said comeback applies to Fisher as much as it applies to Affleck, however, remains to be seen.
