Move Over Ben Affleck, Nick Jonas Wants To Be The Next Batman

Nick Jonas has sent a bat signal into the night sky – or rather, into the comments section on Instagram.

The 26-year-old singer and actor made it known publicly that he is ready to take on one of the most iconic superhero roles of all time: Batman.

On January 30, Deadline reported that actor Ben Affleck would not be reprising his role as the caped crusader in 2021’s The Batman.



Director Matt Reeves reportedly wants a younger version Batman/Bruce Wayne to star in a trilogy of films around the character.

Eagle-eyed fans noticed that Jonas had left an Instagram comment on Hypebeast’s photo of the Dark Knight, which asked who followers thought should play the character next.

“First name Nick. Last name Jonas,” the singer suggested.

Warner Bros. has set the film for a June 25, 2021 release.




Affleck has portrayed Batman since 2016; prior to that, Christian Bale took on the role.
