There have been so many different rumours going around about the state of the DC Extended Universe and what Warner Bros. and DC are going to need to do in order to bring their comic book movies up to the very high standard set by the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There are already a number of new DC comic book movies lined up for the course of the next few years but it is going to be interesting to see what actually happens with them.
One of the upcoming new movies that has been receiving a lot of attention for the past few weeks and months, is the planned The Batman movie, which is going to be directed by Matt Reeves, with Ben Affleck expected to reprise the role of Bruce Wayne aka Batman. However, there have been a lot of rumours to suggest that Ben wants to walk away from the role, with the fans calling for a new actor to take over as the Caped Crusader.
One of the actors who has been getting a lot of support from the fans, who would love to see him replacing Ben Affleck in the role of Batman, is the hugely talented Jake Gyllenhaal. Not only have the fans been calling for Jake to take on the role of Batman but they have also been creating some of their own fan art, which shows what the actor could look like in the iconic role.
While we think some of these pictures do look awesome, we have to admit that, for the time being, it does look like Ben Affleck will be returning as Bruce Wayne aka Batman for at least one more movie, so we could still have to wait for quite some time before we get to see Jake Gyllenhaal as Batman, if that ever happens at all.
