August denies Gyllenhall gab
John August sets the record straight on his blog: Jake Gyllenhall is not considering the lead role in the Captain Marvel project which August has been tapped to write. He continues, "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.
"After several months of meetings, 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." Aww no, baseless internet speculation is tons more fun than doing actual work! On to the next trumped-up rumor, then: Emma Watson — in or out?
