Remember all those Matt Damon jokes when it was announced Ben Affleck was going to play Batman? One may actually come true.

Film Drunk is reporting that Damon may play Aquaman in the Zack Snyder-directed Justice League film, which will be made concurrently with the upcoming Superman/Batman/Wonder Woman film for release in either 2017 or 2018.

Damon would join Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Godot as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, and the yet-to-be-cast Green Lantern and The Flash, the website reported.

Warner Bros. president of worldwide production Greg Silverman told the Wall Street Journal earlier this week: "It will be a further expansion of this universe. 'Superman vs. Batman' will lead into Justice League."

Though Silverman didn't reveal which other DC superheroes will join the fray, its widely speculated that we'll see the Flash, Aquaman and Green Lantern again, though it's unclear if Ryan Reynolds will return as Green Lantern.

Film Drunk reported that Jason Momoa also has been rumored for the Aquaman role. According to TheWrap, Momoa is expected to appear in "Batman vs. Superman" in some unknown capacity.
