Jonah Hill is officially out of Matt Reeves' The Batman
Hill was considering playing one of two villains, the Riddler or the Penguin, but Warner Bros and the actor could not come to terms on a deal
Jonah Hill is no longer in talks to play the antagonist in The Batman. The actor, who was in contention for the role last month, is no longer eyeing a role in Matt Reeves and Warner Bros' film.
Sources said, at the time, that Hill was considering playing one of two villains — the Riddler or the Penguin. However, Warner Bros and the actor could not come to terms on a deal.
Meanwhile, Robert Pattinson is set to star in the latest take on the Dark Knight, with Zoe Kravitz playing Catwoman and Jeffrey Wright on board as Batman ally Commissioner Gordon.
The Batman has a release date of June 25, 2021.
