Jonah Hill (21 Jump Street) is in talks to play a mystery villain in DC superhero film The Batman.
Matt Reeves (War For The Planet Of The Apes) is directing from his own script, and he’ll produce with his Apes collaborator Dylan Clark. Robert Pattinson will star as Bruce Wayne/Batman in this latest reboot of the iconic vigilante. Jeffrey Wright is also said to be in talks to play Commissioner Gordon.
Hill was Oscar-nominated for supporting acting roles in Moneyball and The Wolf of Wall Street. Hill’s global box office credits have amassed $5.8 billion with such pics as the How to Train Your Dragon franchise, The Lego Movie pics and the 21 and 22 Jump Street pics.
The Batman is set for release on June 25, 2021.
