Ryan Gosling is Hollywood’s “It” man right now. The Blade Runner 2049 star is currently one of the most sought after actors in the business. The star is on a press tour to promote his new film First Man, in which he portrays astronaut Neil Armstrong.
When speaking to Variety about his new movie, Gosling was asked if he would consider playing the Caped Crusader.

Could Gosling Don The Cowl?
The question left the star stammering, before deflecting the quesiton towards his director. This isn’t the first time that Gosling’s been asked, or rumoured to be starring in a superhero production. British publication The Sun, had claimed that Gosling was in contention for Mysterio before the role was offered to, and accepted by Jake Gyllenhaal.
Gosling definitely has the suave personality to portray Bruce Wayne, but I haven’t really seen him in a role that underlines Batman’s grit. The upcoming Matt Reeves directed, The Batman, is rumoured to be centred on a younger Dark Knight. With Ben Affleck reprising the role still up for debate, the rumour mill has started churning.
If Affleck doesn’t return, who would you like to see play the younger Batman?
