Although I'm too lazy to look it up I am pretty sure I remember Jake Gyllenhaal saying something in a recent interview about how he's glad he didn't end up playing any of the superhero roles he almost played (he was supposedly really close to taking over Spider-man from Tobey Maguire at one point) but perhaps he might be convinced otherwise for a certain caped crusader...
"Ben Affleck out, Jake Gyllenhaal in? That’s the latest allegation from John Campea, who claims the current Caped Crusader will be relieved of his crimefighting duties soon after the launch of Justice League. His successor? Jake Gyllenhaal, who has allegedly been shortlisted to headline The Batman – and, by effect, a whole new trilogy – under the stewardship of Matt Reeves."
It really is just a rumor and it seems to come from a single source at that, but Matt Reeves is a good director, and anything that takes work away from Ben Affleck I am down for. That said... a whole new Batman trilogy? Jesus Christ I am tired. Anyway what do you guys think of the Gyllen-bat?
