A new rumor has gone online indicating that “Godless” and “Unbroken” star Jack O’Connell is being considered for a key role in the upcoming Matt Reeves-directed noir-driven “The Batman” at Warner Bros. Pictures.
Usually reliable outlet That Hashtag Show reports that the studio has expressed interest in the 29-year-old for a specific role in the film, and they aren’t certain if it’s Bruce Wayne/Batman or something else. This marks the second time O’Connell’s name has been linked to the film in a report. In both cases nothing has been substantiated as yet.
It also follows on the heels of tabloid reports that indicate that with Ben Affleck now out of rehab and doing well, he’s reportedly interested in reprising his Batman role for the film. Both Kit Harington and Jon Hamm’s names have also been linked to the project in recent months, but no casting has been confirmed and the film still hasn’t set official production dates.
