Despite the actor's enthusiasm, it is unknown who actually dons the penguin's iconic cylinder for the part. The report states that Reeves did not emerge from the Penguin in the upcoming Birds of Prey (and the fanciful emancipation of Harley Quinn) due to be released in February 2020.
This rumor is in line with earlier that called the penguin as a very possible choice for the movie's main antagonist. Last May Variety 's Justin Kroll reported he had "played the penguin in the highly anticipated film" perhaps the main villain.
Last month, rumors swirled that Warner Bros. had Jonah Hill in mind for the role, and Birds of Prey star Margot Robbie followed Hill on social media. Also Nick Frost and Andy Serkis were rumored as possible choices.
In addition to the speculation, Gad once again picked up Twitter to annoy the role, either as an indication that he had been cast as a penguin, or just to play him
