The Penguin rumoured for lead villain in THE BATMAN or BIRDS OF PREY



The Penguin

A new rumour courtesy of Justin Kroll (Variety) has given us an idea of just who might be the villain in The Batman.

Kroll sent out the following tweet last night which points to Warner Bros. having The Penguin at the top of the list of villains to feature in the movie. As always these rumours should be taken with a pinch of salt.

Kroll is, however, a very credibly source when it comes to DC Films rumours:

In a subsequent tweet Kroll revealed that WB is so keen on Penguin that they have a back-up plan. Should Matt Reeves take his script in a different direction the villain could well turn up in Birds of Prey!

Either way it seems The Penguin will be returning to the big screen. The character last appeared on the silver screen in Batman Return where he was played by Danny DeVito. Of course Oswald Cobblepot also appears on the small screen each week in Gotham where he is played by Robin Lord Taylor.
