Jonah Hill is walking away from Warner Bros. and "The Batman." Hill was currently in negotiations to play a villain in the upcoming DC film. Hill's involvement was first reported last month by Variety, leading to rumors that Hill would either play The Penguin or The Riddler. Hill is best known for his comedic work, but over the years he has strengthened his dramatic chops, making it possible that he plays a villain.

Robert Pattinson was tapped to play the Caped Crusader in "The Batman," who has drawn criticism from fans. Pattinson has become known for his work in the "Twilight," franchise. Similarly to Hill, Pattinson has added to his resume and strengthened his dramatic chops. For now, Pattinson and Hill will not have the opportunity to meet each other in Gotham City.

Jonah Hill's exit remains a mystery

Hill's exit was first confirmed by Deadline.

It's still a mystery why he left, but the Hollywood Reporter has said it was a disagreement over pay. Hill seems to have wanted more than what Warner Bros. wants to pay him.

Along with Pattinson, "The Batman" has cast Jeffrey Wright and Zoe Kravitz [VIDEO]. Jonah Hill would have been an intriguing addition to the film. As many have learned thanks to the Sony/Disney deal, no deal is completely dead. Some could end up being revived and the deal could be eventually reached, bringing Hill back to the film.
