Here's Who Matt Reeves Reportedly Wants To Replace Ben Affleck As THE BATMAN In His Trilogy

Ben Affleck has made it clear that he's ready to hang up the cape and cowl as the DC Film Universe's Batman and now a new report claims to reveal who director Matt Reeves is eyeing as the new Bruce Wayne.

Earlier today, we heard that The Batman director Matt Reeves is mulling over finding a new actor to take on the role of the Dark Knight in his trilogy, no great surprise considering the fact Ben Affleck seems ready to walk away from the character. Well, in the video below, John Campea now claims that the War for the Planet of the Apes helmer has set his sights on A-Lister Jake Gyllenhaal (Stronger). 

Apparently, two ideas are being considered for the trilogy; one would see it set apart from the DC Films Universe (which probably means we can forget about seeing more of J.K. Simmons' Jim Gordon) and the other would be set before the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Jake and Ben aren't dead ringers for one another but given the near ten year age gap, it could actually work really well!

It seems we'll just have to wait and see but this is a very interesting and exciting casting addition and one which would definitely soften the blow of Affleck's seemingly inevitable departure. What do you guys think? As always, be sure to share your thoughts with us in the comments section below.
