Jake Gyllenhaal: I'm "Batman"

After Warners postponed their stand-alone "The Batman" feature, a fresh screenplay was rewritten by director Matt Reeves ("Dawn of The Planet of The Apes"), who said if Ben Affleck drops out, actor Jake Gyllenhaal ("Nightcrawler") will be the next 'Caped Crusader':

In writer/director Dan Gilroy's "Nightcrawler" (2014), Gyllenhaal stars as 'Lou Bloom'...

...a petty thief , who becomes a freelance news stringer, video-recording and sometimes staging violent events late at night in Los Angeles, selling gruesome footage to a ratings-driven local television news station.

The common theme of the film is the symbiotic relationship between unethical 'fake news' journalism...

...and consumer demand.
