The Batman: Jonah Hill No Longer in Talks to Join Matt Reeves Film

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.

In any case, casting appears to be well underway, with Zoe Kravitz joining the film as the next incarnation of Selina Kyle/Catwoman and Jeffrey Wright in talks to play Commissioner James Gordon.
