Exclusive: We hear that the two-time Oscar nominee is no longer in talks to play the villain in Warner Bros. reboot of The Batman
starring Robert Pattinson
. Essentially talks broke down, which happens on big pics like these. We originally broke the news that Jonah Hill
was in talks to play a villain in the movie, either Riddler or Penguin. We understand Warners is circling around new candidates already for one of those roles in the Matt Reeves
-directed DC movie.
We heard that there was interest from the production in Seth Rogen
for the role of the Penguin
, however, but I hear no offers or talks occurred.
The current cast in addition to Pattinson includes Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman and Jeffrey Wright
as Commissioner Gordon.
The Batman is set for release on June 25, 2021.Mattson Tomlin
and Reeves co-wrote the script for The Batman
. Dylan Clark and Reeves produce. Michael E. Uslan
