It's not out until Friday. I'm not telling you who it is, so cut it out and give Penguin his week for discussion.

Additional Information: The Penguin's alias first came from a childhood taunt, leveled by bullies who teased him because of his grotesque appearance and love of birds. Though hating the nickname, Cobblepot found this alias made him more known in the criminal underworld. In keeping with his family's tradition of wealth, the Penguin lives a life of crime, yet executes it with his class and style, including buying the now infamous Iceberg Lounge; guests who have included Bruce Wayne and even The Joker. Unlike most of Batman's rogue gallery, the Penguin is completely sane, making him certainly a unique opponent for the Dark Knight.

Role in A3: Humiliated by Bruce Wayne, Batman and Two Face after the events of Arkham City, the Penguin will certainly want revenge on all three. The gang war between him and the ex DA may be more fierce than ever with one of their opponents dead, and this will surely mean more work for Batman. Penguin may also have some valuable information for Batman, meaning a trip back to the possibly now run-down Iceberg Lounge.

Essential Reading: No Mans Land Vol. 2 (I'm pretty sure it's issue 2), Detective Comics #58, Brightest Day, Penguin: Pain and Prejudice 

On a personal note, I really do hope he returns. He was definetly one of my favourite characters in AC and I'd love to see him again ib the sequel.

You are all rating Pinguin's chances to be in to high I think.
He had a great role in AC, I think he should leave the spot for unseen characters, and there are other unused mob bosses. Using him again would be over using him.

Joker, Harley and Ivy all had big roles in AA, but they still reappeared. I hope Penguin does too, but I'm a huge fan of Rocksteady's Penguin, so I'm a bit biased :-P

For the Joker this is different, he is batman's iconic ennemy.
He can afford a come back...at least he could before he died...

Well...Penguin is pretty iconic too. And he seems to be Joker's arch enemy in the Arkhamverse, so he looks like quite a big character.
A lot of villains reappeared already, I think they should bring some of the big ones back again.

I really can't wait to see Penguin in Batman: Arkham Origins!

Nor can I...wonder if he'll still be cockney! I loved how some reviewers thought he was doing an Australian accent. That definitely wasn't!
I'm crazy enough to take on Batman, but the IRS?! No thank you!

He also doesn't have a bottle in his eye in Origins.

I would take that to mean that Zsasz won't be making an appearance in the game this time around.

I hadn't noticed that...maybe his character will be slightly different this time around...
