Jensen Ackles Responds To Batman Rumours
When asked by an audience member “What can you tell us about this rumour spreading online that you’re on a top 3 list to play Batman?” Ackles responded:
“I don’t know. I mean could I do it? Sure. Would I wanna do it? Yes. (…) Right now nobody’s talking about anything. I think it’s – everybody knows that there is a [WGA] strike going on in the entertainment industry and until that gets solved, nobody is having conversations about anything.
People are having conversations in-house but those are not – those aren’t necassarily conversations that are being talked about outside – so would I entertain the idea of playing my favourite superhero of all time – nah I’m good, seems like a lot of work.
You gotta put on a whole batsuit and be a superhero [audience member shouts ‘oh, you’d like it’] … I’d love it. Sign me up.”Jensen Ackles
Currently, there has been no official announcement as to who may be in the running to star as the next live-action Batman for the DCU.
The Brave and the Bold is expected to release sometime in 2025.
