To be fair, I have a feeling it's going to be quite a while before we ever see another Justice League movie again. And if Reeves and Warner Bros are able to get Gyllenhaal onboard for the Batman trilogy, that's going to put a ton of pressure on the studio to make sure they grab a winner to direct JL2 and what-not.

But yeah, if Gyllenhaal goes for it, it'll probably be because of the acclaim that Reeves has garnered over the past few years.

Woah, easy there! It is just a rumor so far, but it's one that I heard about myself a week ago without any relation to Campea. I took it with a massive grain of salt then, but I've seen more and more evidence pointing towards this being what folks around the biz are all hearing. Other people I've seen online heard the same rumor in advance before Campea came out and said it.

My guess is that the big trades are waiting to come out and officially confirm it because JL is just now coming out in theaters and the studio wants to wait to confirm that Affleck is leaving until after the box office stuff is out of the way.

Well I hope it is indeed true.

How in the hell are people jumping on this like it's already a thing?

I'd be over the moon if Gyllenhaal was cast. I've wanted him since Prisoners, but let's hold off here. I'll start believing it when someone other than Screenrant or John Campea report it.

Yeah, these kind of sources jump the gun or get things wrong all the time, it's best to wait until a more official source says something.

Man, with names like Gyllenhaal and Gosling being thrown around, I’ll probably smash my iPhone if I’m checking my news feed and I see that some lackluster choice like Hammer ends up getting the part.

I'd take hammer over either honestly. Jake is great, but I don't see him filling Batflecks shoes physically, and that's what has set his Batman apart. Not to mention he's been great as bruce Wayne as well. Gtfo with Gosling man come on.

I think Jake would be fine filling out the suit.

If Gyllenhaal or Gosling were involved, I'd actually be excited to see Batman again. It's been a while.

I'm not sure Gosling would be up for a multi-picture contract, but I can see both being attracted to the project since Matt Reeves is involved.

It's going to be interesting if Jake nabs it. Ever since Goyer picked him out as a close alternative to Bale, I've always wondered how he'd have approached it. And whether he may have given a better performance despite not looking as accurate to the books.

It's arguably a much better time for him as his talents have only grown exponentially ever since 2003. A post-Nightcrawler/Prisoners Gyllenhaal? Sign me up.

Gosling does not fit the role of Bruce Wayne or Batman. I don't get the fascination with him for the role.

Both Gyllenhaal and Bale were great choices due to their sheer commitment to the craft. Gyllenhaal has improved so much over the years -- one of the best in Hollywood.

Based on what? Physical appearance? He's proven to be a very compelling dramatic actor, especially in his more stoic performances in Drive, Blade Runner 2049 and The Place Beyond the Pines.

So let's say they recast - is it business as usual or will they explain the difference or is it separate continuity?

I have a feeling WW, Flash, Superman are characters they can milk some more and happy with the cast - so what do they do?

The thing is, neither Gosling nor Gyllenhaall need this role. Their careers are doing great on their own and entering a shaky DCU is something that they just don't need to ruin that. Unless Reeves has an incredible take where there are guarantees.

Affleck didn't need the role either. It's always a gamble.

To be fair, Gyllenhaal's new movie Stronger underperformed badly at the BO a couple months back. He doesn't necessarily need it, but headlining a billion-dollar franchise is good exposure for him.
