Nick Jonas Wants to Be Your New Batman

Nick Jonas on Kingdom

Singer/actor Nick Jonas is ready to heed the call of the Bat-Signal, in the wake of recent news that Ben Affleck won't return as the Dark Knight for Matt Reeves' upcoming film.

Responding to an Instagram post by Hypebeast on the issue of which actor should succeed Affleck in the role, the former Disney Channel star wrote, “First name Nick. Last name Jonas.”

Jonas isn't the first former teen icon to reportedly long to play Batman. Jack O’Connell, who portrayed resident bad boy Cook on Skins, was rumored to be next in line to play Bruce Wayne in Reeves’ movie. Most other contenders for the role are established, older actors with a strong background in drama and theater, and have won (or been nominated for) a major award.

The 26-year-old Jonas has established acting credits beyond Camp Rock, of course, starring as the closeted up-and-coming fighter on DirecTV's Kingdom, and playing fraternity member Boone Clemens on Fox's Scream Queens.

It's rumored that Reeves is eyeing a younger actor to play Bruce Wayne in his film, currently titled The Batman, which will be told from the Dark Knight's point of view, and play up the vigilante's reputation as the world's greatest detective.

Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman opens June 25, 2021.
