Jake Gyllenhaal On Possibly Playing A Superhero In The Future
When asked if he's "over the superhero thing" after previously being linked to the roles of Batman and Spider-Man, Source Code actor Jake Gyllenhaal isn't in a hurry to play a comic book hero right now, but doesn't entirely rule it out.
Speaking with Short List, End Of Watch actor Jake Gyllenhaal is asked the popular question: Is he interested in playing a superhero role at some point in the future? He was previously rumored to replace Tobey Maguire in Spider-Man 2, and was linked to the role of Batman before Christian Bale played the character in Batman Begins. When asked if he's still interested in portraying a superhero, Gyllenhaal doesn't sound entirely opposed to the idea, but isn't in a hurry to do so.
"At a certain point you realize there's always someone more interesting, talented and ready to do a role than you are - and you won't get every role you go for. All I want right now is to hone my skills and become a better actor, not dream about wearing a cape. But you never know."
Since previously being connected to two of the biggest superhero roles of all time, Gyllenhaal has been frequently fan-cast as various comic book movie roles by fans. The actor is no stranger to the action genre, having starred in films such as Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time, Source Code, and the aforementioned End Of Watch (which is in theaters now).
