It is no secret that the DCEU has been under what many can consider to be a major overhaul. They are trying to get on track under new president of DC films Walter Hamada. This includes the upcoming James Wan directed, Aquaman starring Jason Momoa, the David Samberg helmed, SHAZAM starring Zachary Levi as well as the sequel to the blockbuster Wonder Woman directed by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot.
Included in this are many films that have been announced and have yet to go into production, some for some time now. One of those being the solo caped crusader film, The Batman directed by Matt Reeves. Now many are wondering with is going on with this project, will Ben Affleck stay on as the Dark Knight and also who will be the main villain. Now originally it was set to be the mercenary known as Deathstroke, played by Joe Manganiello but that has been since cancelled. But now according to a series of tweets by Variety reporter Justin Kroll we may know who the main baddie will be.
Now it would seem almost obvious that the correct route would be to have the Penguin in the Birds of Prey film but for those who remember Danny Devito’s performance in Batman Returns, a darker and expanded route with the character than it could work. Let us know your thoughts on this. Do you want the Penguin, would you rather had Deathstroke or do you want another villain?
