Jonah Hill is no longer a part of The Batman cast

Jonah Hill is no longer a part of The Batman cast”

Looks like Jonah Hill is no longer joining Gotham's rogues gallery.

It was never confirmed which of the Caped Crusader's many nemeses Hill might have played, but it was rumored that he might have been up for the Riddler or Penguin.

He was reported to be in talks to star as either the Penguin or the Riddler in The Batman movie.

No specific story details for The Batman have been revealed to the public yet other than it will have a noir tone and highlight the eponymous protagonist's detective skills, which hasn't been done that often in previous movies. Still, if Warner Bros. executives had their sights set on Hill for either of the two iconic DC Comics villains, then it stands to reason that the studio will probably go with someone like Hill: a comedic actor by nature who has proven capable of bringing nuanced, always-delightful performances to more dramatic fare. Although that being said, he already has some superhero movie experience under his belt as the voice of Green Lantern in the LEGO Movie franchise. It's now unknown as to why Hill backed out in the end, but The Hollywood Reporter's Borys Kit implied that it may have something to do with payment, reiterating WB's determination not to see a repeat of Batman '89, where star Jack Nicholson walked away with a hefty paycheque.

The news comes after Zoe Kravitz was recently tapped to play Selina Kyle, also known as Catwoman, in the Matt Reeves-directed movie that also stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader.

Considering that Hill seemed like a smart choice to play either of those villains, it will be interesting to see who Warner Bros turns to now to fill the roles of these two villains.
