Did Frozen star Josh Gad just hint that he is set to play Penguin in a DC movie?

Yes, it’s a slow news morning, ok?

Josh Gad, best known as Olaf in Frozen, has posted an image of The Penguin on his Twitter and it has everyone talking… could he be hinting he’s in talks to play the character in an upcoming DC Movie?

Gad is in the spotlight at the minute for his fun turn as LeFou in Beauty and the Beast and, to be honest, my first reaction was ‘what?! Gad couldn’t play that role!’.


The more I think about it, the more I think he could. There is something sinister to Gad in some of his performances (seriously, the guy has a chilling smile) and the more we think about it, the more we reckon he could be a great choice.

Birds of Prey? Batgirl? Suicide Squad 2? Nightwing? The Batman? Where will se see him if this happens?

Let us know your thoughts…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
