Jonah Hill, who was reportedly in talks to join Matt Reeves' The Batman as a member of the Caped Crusader's rogues gallery, is apparently no longer attached to the project.
According to Deadline, "talks broke down, which happens on big pics like these." However, the outlet also reports that other candidates are already being considered to fill his spot.
Hill's name first became associated with the film in September, when it was reported that he was being eyed for a villainous role. Some reports suggested it was for The Penguin while others said it was for The Riddler. Nevertheless, shortly after those initial reports, it was implied that the actor was holding out over pay issues, as he wanted $10 million -- more than double what Bruce Wayne/Batman star Robert Pattinson was supposedly making.
The Batman is directed by Matt Reeves, who will also produce alongside Dylan Clark. Casting is still underway, with the film scheduled to be released on June 25, 2021.
