Jake Gyllenhaal confirms he won’t be starring in THE BATMAN


The will-he-won’t-he of Ben Affleck and The Batman continues. Whilst we won’t know for sure if he is starring in the film until it is ready to start filming we do know one thing. Jake Gyllenhaal won’t be taking over from him. At least not for now.

The actor has been “strongly rumoured” for some time to be taking over the cowl. But in an interview with CNA Lifestyle (via BatmanNews.com) the actor is asked outright whether he is involved with Batman. His response?

“Wow, that’s a very difficult question. The answer to that question is ‘no.'”

Seems pretty cut and dry to us!
