Jake Gyllenhaal is NOT Captain Marvel

“I’ll be sure to let the studio, producers, and director know,” says Shazam! screenwriter John August. “But the thing is, he’s not considering. I can pretty much assure you he’s never heard of the project. And we’ve never discussed him. We’ve never seriously discussed anyone.”

August claims that casting has never come up during the “several months of meetings” leading to the project.

“Casting has come up exactly zero times. There’s no casting list. If there were a list, Gyllenhaal’s name would probably be on it, but trust me: there is no list. There’s no start date, no release date, no movie whatsoever. There’s just a script to be written. Which I should probably get back to.”
