War for the Planet of the Apes filmmaker Matt Reeves is directing from his own script, and he’ll produce with his Apes collaborator Dylan Clark. Previous villains in the Batman cinematic canon have included the Joker, the Riddler, the Penguin, Scarecrow, Bane, Poison Ivy, Catwoman and Ra’s al Ghul, among others.
The news comes as Deadline learned Jeffrey Wright is in early talks to take the role of Commissioner James Gordon in the latest Batman installment.
Hill made his feature directorial debut with last year’s A24 movie Mid90s. He was Oscar-nominated for supporting acting roles in Moneyball and The Wolf of Wall Street.
