For the Matt Reeves solo “The Batman” film at the moment. Word is that Ben Affleck will no longer be donning the cape and cowl in the DCEU after and many began to believe that his replacement would be that of Jake Gyllenhaal. Well now that rumor has been seemingly shot down as well.
In the video below (around the 1:30) mark, Gyllenhaal confirms that he won’t be taking on the role of the Caped Crusader. Laughing, he says, “Wow, that’s a very difficult question. The answer to that question is ‘no.'” Whelp, there’s the response. As much as many did not want to hear. But then again this could all be smoke and mirrors and he could be just stringing the fans along until the official announcement is made, who actually knows?
We’ll just have to wait and find out but feel free to share your thoughts below and let us know what you think
