The Batman should have a well-known antagonist of comics books!
Decidedly, the DCEU is not ready to stop! While Margot Robbie will soon begin filming Birds Of Prey, centered on Harley Quinn , Warner Bros. Studios. are already working on a bat-based solo movie: The Batman . If we still know little about the plot or even the cast, a Forbes reporter , Mark Hughes, mentioned that Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin, will be one of the many villains that will appear in the film . He did not specify if he would be the main antagonist or just a villain determined to put a few sticks in the wheels of the Batmobile.It will not be the first time that the super-villain appears on the big screen, since the actor Burgess Meredith took the role in the 1966 film Batman , while we all remember the performance of Danny DeVito in Batman Returns , released in 1992.

Since 2014, the character has even made its nest on the small screen, since Robin Lord Taylor plays the Penguin in the series Gotham , alongside Ben McKenzie! So far, no actor would have been approached to take the role in the next film made in DC, but the comedian Josh Gad does not hide his desire to interpret it , and never deprive himself of his fans . Could he win the casting with perseverance? Possible! Seeing him play The Fool in Beauty and the Beast , we do not doubt his ability to get into the skin of one of the most famous naughty comics books. As for Ben Affleck, it is not certain that he will resume his role as Bruce Wayne, on the other hand, Matt Reeves is already confirmed as a director and plans to develop an even darker plot than previous films. All in all, the shooting should not begin before the end of 2019, for an exit in 2021.
