Jake Gyllenhaal Set to be Become New Batman If Ben Affleck Leaves
Hollywood hunk Jake Gyllenhaal is set to become the new Batman if Justice League star Ben Affleck leaves the role behind, according to a source.
“Gyllenhaal is probably Batman. Affleck is not out of it yet,” claimed the source. “That’s the thing, he still has a contract. But the studio is sour on him. If Ben rolls, Jake is in.”
Since the horrible reviews and box office takings of ‘Justice League’, rumour has it that Affleck has had enough of Batman. While he’s slated to appear in the upcoming ‘Flashpoint’ film, his future in the franchise is still undetermined.
In addition, director Matt Reeves is helming a Batman solo movie and sources say that he has his eye on Gyllenhaal for the Caped Crusader over Affleck.
Jake’s 37. Ben’s 45.
