The Penguin rumored to be the villain in ‘The Batman’

We haven’t heard much about The Batman since director Matt Reeves said he finished the story and was beginning the script late last year. But today, we have an exciting update… a possible villain!

According to Variety reporter Justin Kroll, The Penguin could be the villain in The Batman. He adds that if for whatever reason Reeves makes a change while working on the script, The Penguin could appear as the villain in Margot Robbie’s Birds of Prey instead.

The last time we saw The Penguin as a villain in a Batman movie was in 1992’s Batman Returns, played by Danny DeVito (pictured above).

Kroll is a reliable source but even he is saying to take this news with a grain of salt, so treat it as a rumor for now. Would you like for The Penguin to be the villain in The Batman? Or do you think he’s a better fit for Birds of Prey instead? Let me know in the comments below.
