Tommy Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy) worried those closest to him throughout the fifth series of Peaky Blinders after growing close to Sir Oswald Mosley (Sam Clafin). However, Tommy’s sneaky plot to take the political figure down was finally exposed in an explosive finale that saw the Shelby brother betrayed. But, now Oswald knows he can no longer trust Tommy, will he call upon close friend Adolf Hitler for revenge?

The fifth series of the BBC drama saw the arrival of Oswald and the notorious Blackshirts. 

Tommy appeared to befriend the politician before plotting to assassinate him in the finale. 

In 1936, Hitler was a guest of honour at Oswald’s wedding with his second wife Diana Mitford. 

Could Oswald’s relationship with Hitler be explored when Peaky Blinders returns?

Twitter account Netflix Diaries teased: “Rowan Atkinson (Mr.Bean) is rumoured to be playing Adolf Hitler in Peaky Blinders.”

The account shared the post alongside two photos of Rowan in 2016 drama Maigret.

Netflix fans were thrilled at the suggestion and shared their thoughts on the actor joining the show. 

One said: “This could be the biggest casting coup of our time – Rowan Atkinson is mighty underrated.

“People can’t seem to see beyond Mr Bean, Johnny English and Black Adder.”

“Mate this would be class. From the most lovable man to the most evil and stranger character. What a goosebump,” another shared. 

Someone else tweeted: “The fact that everyone seems to think he’s just Mr bean goes to show how little people know about the ridiculous talent this man has. He would be brilliant in this role.”

Peaky Blinders bosses have since shut down the rumours and told they were false.

However, another actor could be set to take on the role of Hitler and seek revenge for the failed assignation attempt. 

In the season five finale, Tommy tasked Barney Thomas (Cosmo Jarvis) with killing Oswald.

The Shelby brother made sure the Blackshirts rally would be disrupted to cause chaos and confusion. 

On Alfie Solomons’ (Tom Hardy) orders, violence broke out at the rally but Barney was unable to carry out the plan.

Both Barney and Aberama Gold (Aidan Gillen) were killed while Tommy and Oswald escaped unharmed. 

Aberama had been biding his time to avenge his son’s death but an unknown assailant got to him first. 

It was clear Tommy had been betrayed by someone close to him as Oswald had discovered the rally was a trap. 

Realising the Shelby brother will continue to be a problem, will Oswald enlist Hitler for help?

Peaky Blinders season 1-5 are available to stream on Netflix now.
