Daredevil actor Vincent D’Onofrio has denied rumors that he’s playing a character in The Batman.
In spite of being a popular fan pick for the role of Harvey Bullock (the sour ally to James Gordon on the Gotham City Police Department), and recently reaching out to Matt Reeves on Twitter, Vincent D’Onofrio has denied that he has any involvement with The Batman. Vincent D’Onofrio is best-known for his role as Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin on Daredevil, a series that was cancelled last year.
Vincent D’Onofrio explained himself in response to a speculatory article. Check out what the Daredevil actor had to say below:

While it would be great to see Vincent D’Onofrio take part in a superhero movie after Daredevil concluded, it seems like The Batman is not the project for him. It’s possible that he can’t officially say anything and he’s just denying his involvement in the movie, but that seems unlikely, as it would only raise questions about why he hinted at anything in the first place.
We know that The Batman will center around a younger Bruce Wayne and feature a Rogues’ Gallery of villains that reportedly includes Catwoman and The Penguin. Director Matt Reeves has also confirmed that it will not be directly based on Frank Miller’s Year One comic and will make use of Batman’s detective skills to a greater extent than previous DC Comics movies. It is expected to be the first chapter in a new movie trilogy with Robert Pattinson as Batman.
Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman is set to star Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, with Jeffrey Wright in negotiations to play Commisioner James “Jim” Gordon, and Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle / Catwoman. Jonah Hill is also in discussions for what appears to be a supervillain role, but has not yet been confirmed to be a part of the cast.
The Batman will be released in theaters on June 25, 2021.
New ‘Titans’ Photos Show Off Aqualad And The Original Team

"Aqualad" will explore the dynamic among Dick Grayson/Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Donna Troy/Wonder Girl (Conor Leslie), Hank Hall/Hawk (Alan Ritchson), Dawn Granger/Dove (Minka Kelly) and Garth/Aqualad (Drew Van Acker) and how four years prior, their tight-knit family dynamic developed only to have their personal feelings bleed more into their work only to be exacerbated by the arrival of a new villain.
These new images give fans a new look at Drew Van Acker as Aqualad as well as a couple of new looks at the original team united together for action. In particular, we get our best look at how the Aqualad suit translates onscreen in live-action form.

In Season 2, following the aftermath of their encounter with Trigon, Dick reforms the Titans. Under his supervision in their new home at Titans Tower, Rachel, Gar and Jason Todd train together to hone their hero abilities and work together as a team. They are joined by Hank Hall and Dawn Granger aka Hawk and Dove and Donna Troy aka Wonder Girl. Although these original Titans attempt to transition into a regular life, when old enemies resurface everyone must come together to take care of unfinished business. And as this family of old and new Titans – including Conner Kent and Rose Wilson – learn to co-exist, the arrival of Deathstroke brings to light the sins of the old Titans which threaten to tear this new Titans family apart once more.
The series stars Brenton Thwaites as Robin/Nightwing, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, and Ryan Potter as Beast Boy. Newcomers for its sophomore outing include Joshua Orpin and Esai Morales playing Superboy and Deathstroke, respectively, while Chella Man and Chelsea Zhang have also joined the cast as Deathstroke’s children Jericho and Ravager. Natalie Gumede has signed on to play Mercy Graves and Game of Thrones star Iain Glen is on board as Bruce Wayne.
