RUMOR: The Batman To Feature Younger Bruce Wayne
According to Mario-Francisco Robles, Matt Reeves is looking to cast somebody younger as the role of Batman. According to Robles, Matt Reeves met with other actors including Jake Gyllenhaal for the role. One of those actors being Jack Huston. As of recent Huston no longer seems to be in the running. Gyllenhaal is over at the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Reeves has apparently changed the setting of his script. Gyllenhaal apparently signed on to star in Spider-Man: Far From Home because Reeves script changed to a way younger Batman.
Early drafts for The Batman apparently featured a Batman that was just younger than the Ben Affleck’s Batman. This would explain why both Huston and Gyllenhaal were met with about the role with them being around the same age. Huston is 35 and Gyllenhaal is 37. The rumor now is that The Batman will feature a younger Batman who is in his mid 20’s. Robles has apparently heard that insiders have been comparing it to Batman Year One.
