Penguin Rumoured To Be The Villain In ‘The Batman’



Its been a while since we’ve heard any news on The Batman. But a new rumour has surfaced that will no doubt excite fans.

According to Variety’s Justin Kroll, The Penguin is currently the name being tossed around as the villain in Matt Reeves Batman film. Kroll does mention to ‘take with a grain of salt‘. If Reeves decides¬†against using the character, Kroll notes Warner Bros. may use The Penguin in the Margot Robbie’s Birds of Pray film.

“Take this with a grain of salt as things are constantly changing in the DCEU but I’m hearing the Penguin is possibly the choice to play the main villain in THE BATMAN. Sources add even if Reeves decide to go another route the studio could then make him the main villain in BOP”

“Reeves is still working on the script, so that could always change but of the multiple BIRDS OF PREY scripts submitted, one does have the Penguin as the main heavy. Either way, it seems WB wants this character cast in the universe sooner rather then later.”

It sounds like Warner Bros. is interested in bringing the Penguin back to the big screen, the last time we saw the character was in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns.

Actor Josh Gad (Frozen, Beauty and the Beast) has voiced his interest in playing the Penguin for a while now. Check BossLogic’s take on Gad as the Penguin below:
