While the rest of the world prepares for Joaquin Phoenix's Joker to be unleashed next month, the team behind the next Batman reboot is on the hunt for their own villain. Rumor has it that Jonah Hill is a top candidate to play opposite Robert Pattinson in The Batman (after all these years of naming Batman movies, someone finally just slaps a "the" in front of it). 

Insiders seem to think that Hill would play either The Penguin or The Riddler - the NY Post is all in The Riddler, judging by this Photoshop job - but I feel like those bad guys have had their turn. There are literally DOZENS of Batman villains to choose from, can't we pick one we haven't seen before? The Batman won't be out until June 2021, so we have plenty of time to speculate. Let me know which villain you'd prefer on Twitter!
