Jake Gyllenhaal Confirms He Won't Be Replacing Ben Affleck As The New BATMAN

Rumour has it that Ben Affleck won't be donning the cape and cowl in Matt Reeves' The Batman but Jake Gyllenhaal has confirmed in a new interview that he has no plans to take the actor's place as the hero.

The saga of The Batman is long and complicated but as things currently stand, Matt Reeves remains hard at work on the screenplay and Ben Affleck both is and isn't attached to star as the Dark Knight. 

As a result, there have been a lot of rumours about what the future holds in store for the iconic DC Comics superhero and one name which keeps coming up is Jake Gyllenhaal. He'd be a great fit to play Batman and someone fans could get behind as a replacement for Affleck despite the impressive work he delivered in the divisive Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, and Justice League.

However, 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.'" So, there you have it! That's probably not the answer most fans were hoping for but if we all put our conspiracy hats on for a second, it is feasible that he's in talks and lying! 

We'll just have to wait and see but feel free to share your thoughts on this news in the usual place.
