With Matt Reeves’ Batman film looking to start shooting in a few months, they have been busy casting the the characters of the film. First we learned that Twilight alumni, Robert Pattinson would be our new lead playing the role of Bruce Wayne aka Batman. Next up it was announced that Jeffrey Wright was in talks to take on the role of commissioner Gordon. This week some of the roles of the villains got filled in as well. On Monday it was announced that Zoe Kravitz is going to play Selina Kyle aka Catwoman and that Paul Dano has been cast as Edward Nygma aka the Riddler.
One name that had been attached to the film was Jonah Hill, who we recently learned has left negotiations to join the film. According to Deadline, Hill prefered to play the role of the Riddler, while Reeves preferred that he took on the role of Oswalt Cobblepot aka the Penguin. With the role of the Riddler filled, they are also reporting that they are still searching of the right actor to play the Penguin.
So far the casting looks pretty good and I think that the film is better off without Hill. I look forward to seeing more characters from Batman’s world get cast and what other villains if any get cast. One of the most important roles that I curious about is who will play Alfred Pennyworth in the film. Who do you think should play the Penguin or any other Batman character in your opinion? Let us know in the comment section below!
Currently Warner Bros. Pictures is set to release The Batman on June 25th, 2021.
