At some point in time, Jonah Hill was being tapped to portray “The Riddler” in Matt Reeve’s film The Batman. As Variety has learned, the actor has passed on the chance. No reason has been given, though some rumblings are coming through about creative differences. Whatever the case, Hill is out and the search for a nemesis continues.
This development follows the news that Zoe Kravitz will be playing Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman), which was announced earlier this week. She’ll be starring alongside Edward Cullen himself, Robert Pattinson, when the film does materialize in 2021. With no one else in waiting, WB is now back to the grind to find the proper foil to the caped crusader.
