“I’ve had to make adjustments along the way”James Wan accepted. “The DCU has gone through many different iterations, and one of the most challenging things about this movie was keeping track of what was going on.”
“Fortunately, the Aquaman universe is far removed from the rest of the world.

However, Warners decided to cancel several films and series in production with the arrival of David Zaslav, including the Batgirl film for HBO. So Keaton’s scene was re-shot, but this time with Ben Affleck’s Batman and since Crisis on Infinite Earths was scrapped, the scene in question would not even be in the film.
