Jonah Hill won't face Robert Pattinson in Matt Reeves' The Batman.
We previously reported that Jonah Hill is in talks to play a popular villain in the new Batman movie. Well, turns out that that won't happen as the actor dropped out of the film.
Borys Kit of The Hollywood Reporter revealed on Twitter that "Warner and the actor were too far apart on a deal" so negotiations broke down.
True: Jonah Hill is no longer in talks for THE BATMAN. Warners and the actor were too far apart on a deal.

Hill was in talks to play one of two popular Batman villains - either The Riddler or The Penguin. He would have gone head-to-head with Robert Pattinson's Bruce Wayne.
Yesterday, it was announced that Zoë Kravitz will take on the role of Selina Kyle aka Catwoman in the new Batman adaptation directed by Matt Reeves.
