Robert Pattinson’s The Batman might have found his first co-star.
Sources tell Variety that Jonah Hill is in talks to join Pattinson in Matt Reeves’ The Batman. Insiders also say Jeffrey Wright is in talks to play Commissioner Gordon.
According to sources, producers had long wanted Hill for the project, but casting decisions were put on hold until the role of Batman was filled. The deal hasn’t closed and sources say it could still fall apart, but both sides are engaging on Hill joining. As for who Hill is playing, that’s still being worked out as well, but sources say he’s being eyed for a villain role.
Warner Bros. and Hill and Wright’s reps could not be reached for comment.
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.
