Yesterday it was revealed by former Collider host John Campea, that if his sources are correct. Current Bruce Wayne and Batman actor Ben Affleck will be exiting Warner Bros.' DC Cinematic Universe following the release of Justice League this weekend.
While talking about the topic yesterday on his showed he teased that he's also been told by his industry sources that Matt Reeves is already in talks with a huge big name movie star to take Affleck's place in his so Batman trilogy he is currently working on.
While Campea held back on his movie podcast show yesterday. He has now revealed via his John Campea Show who director Matt Reeves will replace Ben Affleck with if all goes according to the writer and director's plan.
That is none other than Nightcrawler and Stronger actor Jake Gyllenhaal! A surprising choice of course, but a perfect one upon letting idea sink in. Gyllenhaal has for years been circling a big-screen superhero type role and never jump at one. Could Batman be the perfect fit? We certainly think so.
During his show, John Campea also goes on to talk about how Gyllenhaal's age is perfect for the role as well, especially of Matt Reeves is going to set his Batman trilogy prior to the events of Batman V. Superman, Suicide Squad, and Justice League.
I personally love the choice and consider Jake Gyllenhaal one the great actors of this generation and have always though he would have made a great Joker following Heath Ledgers untimely death. But hey! Batman works too! The guy is an A-lister for a reason.
Do you guys think Jake Gyllenhaal will be a great Bruce Wayne and Batman? We certainly do! Wow! We're so excited for this to happen.
