For the moment, it is Ben Affleck who puts the coat, and the cloak, of Batman in the Extended Universe DC. However, the actor never seemed to be 100% invested in this role. In recent months, statements about the upcoming film dedicated to the masked avenger seem to indicate a new actor… But who? Jake Gyllenhaal?
