The world of comic book fandom went gaga when it was announced the Academy Award nominee, Jonah Hill was in talks to board Matt Reeves’ THE BATMAN in an undisclosed villain role. The rumor mill began to circulate like crazy as to which member of the caped crusaders Rogue’s Gallery he would be portraying. The top two being The Riddler or The Penguin.
Well not all of that anticipation has to be quenched as it is being reported by Deadline that Hill is no longer in talks to join the film in any capacity. This is sad but hopefully Hill’s next role will still be one that has audiences clamoring.
