According to numerous sources, Jonah Hill is set to play opposite Robert Pattinson’s caped crusader, in director Matt Reeve’s 2020 Warner Bros. tentpole The Batman.
Rumors suggest he’s being eyed as the antagonist, either The Riddler or more The Penguin.
The Batman has spent a bit longer than anticipated in development, but once a successor to Ben Affleck as found in Pattinson it seems to be moving at high velocity.
Pre-production on the Warner Bros.-DC Comics movie is expected to start this summer. No official production start date has been set, although insiders tell Variety that filming could start in late 2019 or early 2020.
