Jonah Hill Could Be Newest Batman Villain, And Fans Are Dying To Know Which One

The actor is reportedly being eyed for the role of a villain in "The Batman," while Jeffrey Wright is in negotiations to play Commissioner Gordon.

Jonah Hill could be joining Robert Pattinson in the cast of the Warner Brothers reboot “The Batman.”

The actor, director and comedian is in talks with producers to play an unspecified villain in the film, according to Variety and Deadline sources.

“Westworld” star Jeffrey Wright has also been in negotiations to play Commissioner Gordon, according to a Hollywood Reporter exclusive.
