Following the poor reviews and box office takings of Justice League, rumours have sprouted that Affleck has had enough of Batman.
While he’s supposed to be appearing in the upcoming Flashpoint movie with Ezra Miller, his future in the franchise is still undetermined.
To add to this, Matt Reeves is helming a Batman solo movie and sources say that he has his eye on Gyllenhaal for the Caped Crusader over Affleck.
Now an insider has spoken out to Revenge of the Fans, claiming it’s all but a done deal with Gyllenhaal, as soon as Affleck decides to hang up his cape.
The source said: “Gyllenhaal is probably Batman. Affleck is not out of it yet.
“That’s the thing, he still has a contract. But the studio is sour on him.
“If Ben rolls, Jake is in. Kind of a weird web. These guys both know they control each other’s destiny.”
Speaking with The Q&A with Jeff Goldsmith, Reeves said of the script: “I am outlining. I have the story worked out, and I am outlining.”
A release date for the Batman solo movie is currently unknown.
