When reports of the pair’s hangout began to flood the internet, many who remembered the early 2000s joked that 2021 might be the new 2003. With Y2K fashion making a comeback and the flood of nostalgic movie reboots, this relationship could become new again too. The memes posted as a result of the J.Lo-Ben Affleck news ranged from hilarious to hoping there’s a Jersey Girl sequel in the works.
While the universe might be signaling the return of the 2000s, fashion and Hollywood couples aren’t the only things coming back for seconds. Ben is reportedly reprising his role as Batman in the 2022 film The Flash for the last time. The Flash is currently filming in London, but Ben has not been spotted on set yet, despite reportedly being the emotional heart of the film. Maybe this delay will give him more time to hang out with J.Lo?
Fans are excited at the thought of this epic Hollywood reunion, but so far, reports of anything more than friendship have been unconfirmed. Let’s hope that if the pair do decide to give their relationship a second try, they let everyone know so we can help them celebrate the occasion!
Catch Ben Affleck on the big screen in The Flash, arriving Nov. 4, 2022.
