Wright is circling the role of Commissioner James Gordon, one of the Dark Knight’s most trusted allies in Gotham City. In the 1989 version of the film directed by Tim Burton, Gordon was played by Pat Hingle. In Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight films — which brought a certain gravitas and real-world solemnity to the pop-colored comic book franchise — Gordon was played by Gary Oldman.
Jonah Hill, per Collider, is in talks to play The Riddler. He has previously been played in live-action by Frank Gorshin and John Astin in the 1960s “Batman” television series, Jim Carrey in the 1995 film “Batman Forever,” and Cory Michael Smith in the series “Gotham.”
