The world of comic book fandom went gaga when it was announced the Academy Award nominee, Jonah Hill was in talks to board Matt Reeves’ THE BATMAN in an undisclosed villain role. The rumor mill began to circulate like crazy as to which member of the caped crusaders Rogue’s Gallery he would be portraying. The top two being The Riddler or The Penguin.
Well not all of that anticipation has to be quenched as it is being reported by Deadline that Hill is no longer in talks to join the film in any capacity. This is sad but hopefully Hill’s next role will still be one that has audiences clamoring.
The 3rd season of the Legends of Tomorrow is beefing up their new cast and this announcement is proof of that.
According to Deadline, Tala Ashe (American Odyssey, Smash, Law and Order) has been casted as “Zari Adrianna Tomaz/Isis” and of course she will not be using that name (Isis). She will portray a very different incarnation of the character that was first introduced in DC Comics as Black Adam’s wife. Here, Tomaz will be a Muslim-American woman from the year 2030, who becomes “grey hat hacktivist” in an attempt to combat “humanity’s fear, prejudice, and mistreatment of the planet.”
The Arrowverse has not shied away from any of the current social or political issues that have been going on and this here will more than likely be no different.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will return to The CW Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET this fall.
