Jonah Hill No Longer In Talks To Join The Cast Of THE BATMAN; Seth Rogen Wanted For Penguin

A few weeks back, we found out that Jonah Hill (Wolf of Wall Street) was circling a villainous role in Matt Reeves' The Batman, but now several outlets are reporting that the actor is no longer in talks...

Multiple outlets are reporting that Jonah Hill has ceased negotiations with Warner Bros. for an undisclosed role in The Batman.

No specific reason was given, but THR's Borys Kit did note that "Warners and the actor were too far apart on a deal," which suggests the studio simply didn't want to meet his price.

Hill was said to be circling a villainous role in the movie, but we're not sure if it was The Riddler or The Penguin. Apparently, WB wanted him for the latter, but Hill was more drawn to Edward Nygma. Deadline has heard that there is now interest in Hill's pal Seth Rogen for Oswald Cobbelpot, but no offer has been made. 

We found out earlier in the week that Zoe Kravitz had been cast as Catwoman. She'll join Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman and Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon.

The Batman is set to hit theaters on June 25, 2021.
