Deadline reports that Jonah Hill (Wolf of Wall Street, War Dogs, Superbad) in talks to play a villain in The Batman.
We are hearing that two-time Oscar nominee Jonah Hill is in talks to play a villain in the upcoming Warner Bros. reboot of Batman which stars Robert Pattinson as the caped crusader. Deals aren’t signed yet, but that’s what we are hearing at this minute.
They fall short from mentioning what villain he could be playing but some iconic villains rumored/reported to be part of the rogues gallery include The Riddler, Catwoman, Two-Face, The Penguin, and others.
It remains to be seen which one of those Jonah could be playing but Catwoman seems like a stretch.
Hill would be joining Robert Pattinson (Bruce Wayne/Batman) and Jeffrey Wright (Jim Gordon) in the film written/directed by Matt Reeves.
Warner Bros. has set the film’s release date for June 25th, 2021.
