Yesterday a rumor surfaced that Matt Reeves, the director behind the next Batman movie, has had a meeting with Jake Gyllenhaal about the actor replacing Ben Affleck as the DCEU's Dark Knight. Now, an old video has resurfaced in light of said rumor, which sees Gyllenhaal discuss his potential take on the character.
During an appearance on The Howard Stern Show in July 2015, Gyllenhaal was questioned on his approach to the Batman voice should he ever play the character. The actor provided a humorous take on the iconic character and his trademark movie catchphrase, and while he isn't exactly serious about how he would sound, he does provide a little insight into how he sees the character working.
Gyllenhaal auditioned for the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman when casting began for Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins, but ultimately lost out to Christian Bale. His sister Maggie Gyllenhaal later appeared in its sequel, The Dark Knight.
In theaters now, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Raymond Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Amber Heard as Mera and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
