Cape Town - Despite rumors, Jake Gyllenhaal says he isn’t taking over the role of Batman from Ben Affleck. 

When asked about playing the Caped Crusader in a recent interview with CNA Lifestyle, Gyllenhaal said, "Wow, that’s a very difficult question. The answer to that is 'no.'"


Reports of Gyllenhaal being targeted to play the new Batman started last November, but all things related to director Matt Reeves' The Batman film still remain a mystery. 

Recently, Reeves said development for the movie is going well, which means that it could possibly start shooting next year.
