The upcoming Matt Reeves directed The Batman movie is extremely highly anticipated. We know Robert Pattinson is set to play the titular role but there’s been no news on who will be playing the villain alongside him – until now.
It’s been reported that Jonah Hill is in talks to play the villain in the upcoming blockbuster. The star is said to have entered negotiations with Warner Bros.
Sources have said that he is likely to play the Riddler if he does indeed join the film. Previously, fans speculated that Hill could play Penguin.
It’s also been rumored that Westworld‘s Jeffrey Wright will be playing Commissioner Gorden in the film.
Fans seem excited about both potential castings, which is a lot better than poor Pattinson had to deal with when it was announced he’d be Batman. The Twilight star received a ton of backlash following the news he’d be playing the role but he later admitted he expected it to be “a lot worse”. He was more upset that the news leaked early.
“To be honest, it was less vitriolic than I was expecting. It’s much more fun when you’re an underdog,” said Pattinson. “When that thing leaked, I was f****ng furious. Everyone was so upset.”
With all these rumors swirling around, all there is to do is wait for Reeves to confirm his choices.
