The Batman set to cast Jonah Hill, Jeffrey Wright alongside Robert Pattinson
Looks like we have a better idea of what the new take on Gotham City will look like.
The Batman from Matt Reeves is set to focus on the caped crusader in his early days as the legendary detective, with Robert Pattinson taking over the role following the departure of Ben Affleck.
According to Deadline, we can also expect to see Oscar-nominated actor Jonah Hill take on a major role in the film as he is being eyed for a part.
It is unknown if he is playing a villain in the film, but it has been reported that The Batman will feature a plethora of antagonists, including The Penguin and Catwoman.
Could Hill take on the role of The Penguin?
Additionally, it looks more or less a done deal that Westworld star Jeffrey Wright will join the cast as a new Commissioner James Gordon, taking over from J.K. Simmons after a small appearance in Justice League.
The news comes following a report from The Hollywood Reporter that the actor was in negotiations to appear as Gordon.
Wright is due to return as Bernard Lowe in season 3 of Westworld next year, along with reprising his role as Felix Leiter in the next James Bond film No Time to Die.
Taking to Twitter yesterday (September 23), Wright seemingly confirmed his role by replying to a tweet from Reeves with the monocle emoji.
More castings in the film are yet to be announced, but the film is not expected to connect with next month's Joker movie from director Todd Phillips and starring Joaquin Phoenix.
The Batman is released in cinemas on June 25, 2021.
