Ah, but the business of show is notoriously fickle, and it turns out that Jonah Hill is no longer in contention for any roles in The Batman.

Why exactly Hill is passing the role is now unknown.

After the release of Todd Phillips' Joker, which starred Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck, fans are mighty excited for Matt Reeves' directorial, The Batman, which will see Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader.

He was reported to be in talks to star as either the Penguin or the Riddler in The Batman movie.

Beal has started every game for the Wizards over the last two seasons and leads the league in total minutes over the last three. And Beal can't be traded until after this coming season, at the earliest.

It was recently confirmed that Zoe Kravitz will be essaying the role of Catwoman in The Batman.

Pattinson also added that he took the part because he loves Matt Reeves and because Batman is "a dope character" whose "morality is a little bit off" because he's "not the golden boy, unlike nearly every other comic-book character".

Dano will be replacing Jonah Hill as the infamous villain after Hill walked away from the project when talks broke down between the actor and Warner Bros.

Hill is a two-time Oscar nominee for Moneyball and The Wolf of Wall Street, and he most recently appeared with Matthew McConaughey in Beach Bum. Matt Reeves is directing the new take on the World's Greatest Detective, and production is expected to begin in January in London, before hitting theaters June 25, 2021.

"Why exactly Hill is passing is now unknown, and insiders tell Variety that when the news was initially reported, it was very early in the negotiations and that a deal was far from closing".
