DC’s upcoming Batman movie – The Batman has all the fans riled up. The fans are eagerly waiting to decipher who will be playing the character of the villains of the film. Earlier it was speculated that Josh Gad would be playing the role of Penguin in Matt Reeves’ The Batman.
The Batman already has gone through a transformation after it was initially announced. Ben Affleck was first appointed to star and direct the film, but after he stepped back from the role, Matt Reeves was announced as the director. Last month, Robert Pattinson was chosen to be the Caped Crusader for this run of Batman. There were rumors of more than one villain in this Batman movie which our hero will have to battle against in the film. At the moment, The Penguin and Catwoman are in the rumors to be the villains of the film.
Gad, at many instances teased of him being the Penguin which gave rise to fan arts of Gad being the Penguin. After a long time, Gad responded to a fan on twitter and told that he was not playing the part of penguin in the movie. Check the tweet below –
Ok, seeing as I keep getting this question…as much as I have LOVED torturing you all with teasing you about the Penguin, I feel like it’s time to tell you…I’m NOT actually playing this character. But I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the fan art and the love. 😂😘 https://t.co/fsasvbRTqN pic.twitter.com/igwnT2NNPw

The only thing which we know for sure is Robert Pattinson is our new Batman. Other than this there is not much information available, and with Josh denying anything to do with Penguin’s character leaves fans with one less info about their hero’s movie. But Josh isn’t entirely responsible for this, back in 2017 when he shared fan art of him being the Penguin, he mentioned that he was “Just having some fun.” After that, the rumors escalated with each fan art Josh shared.
