Josh Gad teases further involvement with DC Movies… and a certain villain

June 4th, 2017 by Marc Comments

So you may recall a few weeks ago Frozen and Beauty and the Beast star Josh Gad seemed to hint that he may be connected to the role of The Penguin/Oswald Cobblepot in an unknown DC Cinematic entry (here).

Then, the actor denied there was anything to it other than a bit of fun and there was nothing happening (here).

Well, now he’s at it again on Twitter with an image of himself with DC Films co-head and President/CCO of DC Entertainment Geoff Johns. Oh, and he’s holding an issue of The Batman Adventures featuring, you guessed it, Penguin!

Now, we know there’s nothing official here and that it could be more shenanigans from Gad but we reckon there’s something going on and, with Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie set to begin filming soon and the rumour being it’ll feature many of the Batman’s Rogues Gallery, it might only be a matter of time before we see the actor officially announced somewhere in the cast.

Or maybe not.. who knows?

But we’re getting used to the idea of him in the role.

What about you?

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….
