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.
