On a scale of 1 to 10, how likely is it that Josh Gad is going to play the penguin in a "Batman" movie?
Could Josh Gad be joining the DC movie universe as The Penguin? With the release of the phenomenal Wonder Woman, the DC films are currently *booming*. Now attention is turning to the rest of the films on the DC slate, including Justice League, The Flash, Aquaman, and Batman — to see if they can reach the high bar Wonder Woman just set.
With Josh Gad on board, it looks like the standalone Batman film *could* potentially live up to Wonder Woman‘s legacy — but his casting hasn’t been officially announced yet. The Beauty and the Beast actor — who is EVERYWHERE right now — keeps dropping some not so subtle hints about his involvement in the DC film on Twitter.
Just a few weeks ago, Gad posted a photo of The Penguin, the notorious Batman villain on Twitter, with no caption.
While the tweet had fans *shook* (naturally), Gad never addressed it, so after a while, we just chalked it up to a simple fan post. However, yesterday things took a little bit of a turn. Gad tweeted another photo involving the DC character. The actor posed with DC Films heads Jon Berg and Geoff Johns at the DC Comic Headquarters and held up a comic book featuring The Penguin.
