Jonah Hill is apparently in talks to play a villain in Warner Bros.’ upcoming The Batman reboot. That’s according to an exclusive by Deadline, who report that the Mid90s director could be joining Robert Pattinson as part of the cast. Hill hasn’t signed a deal just yet, though.
The Batman will be directed by Matt Reeves (War for the Planet of the Apes), who also wrote the movie’s script. Pattinson will star as Batman. Deadline also reports that Jeffrey Wright (Westworld) is in early talks to take the role of Commissioner James Gordon.
If Hill does become the villain, he will be joining the likes of Heath Ledger, Jack Nicholson, Danny DeVito, Tom Hardy, and Cillian Murphy, all of whom were once cast as Batman villains.
The Batman is set to be released on June 25, 2021.
