The Batman: Jonah Hill Holding Out Over Pay, Character Issues

This is already reeking of disaster…oh DC…. REC
On Monday, it was reported that Jonah Hill was in talks for a villainous role in Matt Reeves’ upcoming DC film, The Batman, and it didn’t take long for reports about which character the actor was in consideration for to start swirling. Some believed the star would play the Penguin, while another report suggested it was the the Riddler.Apparently, the reason we haven’t gotten any official confirmation on which character he may play is because Jonah Hill is holding out. According to Variety Film‘s Justin Kroll, negotiations are still underway for Hill to join Reeves’ film, with the actor’s salary and the identity of the villainous character he would play as the two main sticking points.

“He’s had the offer for over a month,” Kroll reports, “and besides money being a bargaining point (at one point heard he wanted 10 which is wild since Rob isn’t making half that) but also which character he would play, whether its the Riddler or Penguin.”

Starring Robert Pattinson, The Batman is directed by Matt Reeves, who will also produce alongside Dylan Clark. While casting is still underway, the film is scheduled to be released on June 25, 2021.
