Despite rumors, Jake Gyllenhaal confirmed he isn’t taking over the role of Batman from Ben Affleck. In a recent interview with CNA Lifestyle, Gyllenhaal was asked about playing the Caped Crusader and he said, “Wow, that’s a very difficult question. The answer to that is ‘no.’”
Reports of Gyllenhaal being targeted to play the new Batman started last November, but all things related to director Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’ film still remain a mystery. Recently, Reeves said development is going well, which means the film could start filming as soon as next year.
