Warner Bros. is still trying to find someone to suit up in their next Batman movie. After the box office disappointment with Justice League, rumors began to pop up that Ben Affleck was not going to return in the next Batman solo film.
One name that Warner Bros. wanted for the role was Jack Gyllenhaal but it seems that the star has other plans.
During an interview CNA Lifestyle, Gyllenhaal was asked directly if he would be the next Cape Crusader.
“Wow, that’s a very difficult question,” he says, with a little laugh. “The answer to that question is no.”
The early reports about the film have Batman will be facing off against Deathstroke (Joe Manganiello) in the next Batman movie. Rumors also have the movie set in Arkham during a prison break out of all of Batman’s greatest villains.
Warner Bros. still hasn’t set a release date for The Batman.
