Gyllenhaal Says He’s Not Playing Batman


Should we scratch Jake Gyllenhaal off the list of potential “next Batmen?” (“Batmans?”)

According to Gyllenhaal himself, the answer is yes.

Actually, it’s no.

“Wow, that’s a very difficult question,” said Gyllenhaal about possibly playing Batman in the next solo Batman film. “The answer to that question is ‘no’.”  Check out the video below…

I’d say for now, take JG at his world. However — and this may come as a surprise to you all — but actors, filmmakers, studios, etc. lie all the time.

Remember, Ben Affleck said he was for sure directing the next solo Batman film, only to officially say he wasn’t shortly afterward. Furthermore, Jason Momoa said for a hell of a long time that he wasn’t playing Aquaman in BATMAN v SUPERMAN.  I can give you more examples, but y’all get the point I’m sure.

Basically folks, this type of shi — er — stuff happens ALL THE TIME in that business.

Also, Ben Affleck isn’t “officially” out as Batman, though it’s very unlikely that he’ll continue on in the role.  No way that JG says anything other than “no.”
