RUMOR: Warner Bros. Eyeing GODLESS Actor Jack O’Connell For A Role In THE BATMAN

Another day, another rumor relating to Matt Reeves' upcoming take on The Batman. This time Jack O’Connell (Godless, Starred Up) is the actor said to be in line to possibly replace Ben Affleck in the role.

While we all not-so patiently wait on official word from Warner Bros. relating to Ben Affleck's status as The Dark Knight and which actor could potentially replace him in the cape 'n cowl, a new rumor points to British actor Jack O’Connell (Starred Up, Godless, The Cradle) possibly being in line to suit-up as The Batman.

According to That Hashtag Show, the studio has expressed interest in the 29-year-old for a role in Matt Reeves' film, though they're not certain it's actually for Bruce Wayne/Batman. Indeed, the site cautions that they haven't been able to substantiate the rumor - though O'Connell's name was also mentioned in connection with the project by ROTF recently.

Another rumor doing the rounds this week suggested that Ben Affleck is actually interested in reprising the role now that he's out of rehab and back in shape, so it's always possible that O'Connell is up for a completely different character. Dick Grayson, perhaps?

Anyway, none of this should be given too much attention for the time being, but assuming, for now, that there is something to it, be sure to share your thoughts on Jack O'Connell as The Batman with us in the comments.
