Recently it was announced that Affleck would be playing the Caped Crusader in Aquaman 2. And fans couldn’t be any happier. However, it also made them wish to see Ben with Henry again. A fan even made a compilation of interviews that Ben and Henry did for their 2016 comic book movie, captioning it “Petition to bring back Henry Cavill & Ben Affleck together again.”
