Jonah Hill Could Look Like a PENGUIN in The Batman Movie

Matt Reeves ‘ The Batman is moving forward as Bruce Wayne / Batman in the lead at a constant pace with Robert Pattinson. Now casting choices are beginning to come to light to support cast: Jeffrey Wright is playing Commissioner Gordon, and Jonah Hill is playing a villain role in talks. With the rumors circulating now, fan artist BossLogic has placed together some good pieces of artwork that portray what Jonah Hill might look like in The Batman as Penguin:

“Hearing multiple rumours, hope it’s Penguin 😀 @JonahHill” –BossLogic

Best fan Art

This piece is some classic BossLogic artwork, and it certainly makes the case for Hill playing Oswald Cobblepot, aka Penguin. Hill looks like he could definitely bring a mix of humor and creep-factor to the role, along with the obvious connections in physicality. In terms of live-action Penguin performers, he would also be a worthy successor to Danny DeVito’s role in Batman Returns.

New and different version

 

Of course, The Batman isn’t gong to be Batman Returns, so Jonah Hill’s version of Penguin would definitely be something different than what we got from DeVito. To that end, BossLogic has also created a version of Hill as Penguin that would possibly be a better fit for the world of The Batman:

“This one is a little more accurate, @JonahHill Penguin” –BossLogic

Jonah Hill speculated as the villain

Current rumors point to The Batman will adapt the famous story arc “The Long Halloween”, which was written (ironically enough) by Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb in 1996. The story sees Batman in his very early days of crimefighting, embroiled in a truly perplexing case. A serial killer named “Holiday” begins killing members of Gotham’s warring crime families (the Falcones and Maronis) on different holidays each month of the year. The story is famous for being one of the better Batman detective stories; fleshing out the world first introduced in Batman: Year One; pulling together both Batman’s larger criminal rogues gallery (Joker, Scarecrow, Mad Hatter, Poison Ivy, Riddler) and the cop/crooks characters of Gotham (Harvey Dent, Jim Gordon, Carmine Falcone, Sal Maroni). It would be a way for Warner Bros. to introduce a whole new Batman universe, provide a great detective thriller film, and tap into a fan-favorite storyline.
