In a recent interview, Jake Gyllenhaal was asked if he was going to be the next Batman, to which he replied, “Wow. That’s a very difficult question. The answer to that question is no.” The actor has been rumoured to have met with The Batman director, Matt Reeves, about replacing Ben Affleck in the upcoming solo movie.
Following the poorly received Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad and Justice League, Affleck dropped out of directing the upcoming Batman solo film and most recently said that he would only return to the role is if the script was good.
Matt Reeves recently took to social media to ensure fans that things were progressing well and that he is very excited about the film. It has also been suggested that filming will begin sometime this year for a 2019 or 2020 release date.
