Ben Affleck, Jake Gyllenhaal … We tell you everything.

In 2005 actor Jake Gyllenhaal auditioned for the role of Batman in Batman Beginsby Christopher Nolan. It was finally Christian Bale who won. Could he have a second chance and finally wear the cloak, currently on the shoulders of Ben Affleck?

The rumor

Of course this is only rumor, but an interesting rumor all considered! It was revealed by John Campea, a movie journalist, formerly of the great online magazine Collider, in a video on his YouTube channel, to see here .

What does Campea say? All this starts from the film that Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, The Planet of the Apes: Confrontation and Supremacy) must realize, a Batman all that is more Batman, independent, standalone, for 2019.

Let’s note in passing that the idea that Ben Affleck is no longer Batman is discussed openly in the United States. For Campea it’s a sure thing, and it’s a decision that was made a long time ago, at the beginning of the year. But of course this is also a rumor. So there are two rumors: Ben Affleck leaves, and Jake Gyllenhaal becomes Batman.

Campea says, “I spoke to two people, who revealed to me who Reeves wishes for his Batman.” He says he had a few months ago the revelation of the person # 1 that Ben Affleck left Batman. When person # 2, “an influential Hollywood personality” gave him the name of Jake Gyllenhaal, he went back to # 1: “I told him” that’s the name, “and he told me yes “.

Two Batmen

Jake Gyllenhaal is talented, Ben Affleck too. He was challenged in Batman long before he was seen on the screen, and he stood firm.

He played a darker Bruce Wayne, less assured, with unprecedented humility. His first rejection from many fans was undoubtedly due to the challenge of going after Christian Bale and  Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy . The collective sinking of Daredevil  did not help. Jake Gyllenhaal on his side could be a more balanced Batman, a bit like Michael Keaton.

Ben Affleck is a bit struggling right now. Batman, his passages on the set against the Weinstein scandal … And if he finally decided to be still the justice of Gotham City?
