Last month, Frozen and Beauty & the Beast star Josh Gad got everyone very curious when he shared a cryptic tweet with just an image of the famous Batman baddie Penguin, suggesting that maybe he is being eyed to play that role in the DC Extended Universe. Gad made things a lot more interesting today as he shared an image with DC Films co-heads Geoff Johns and Jon Berg while holding a Batman comic with the Penguin on it.

Despite Gad’s “nothing to see here” comment in the tweet, something is definitely going on here. Oswald Cobblepot a.k.a the Penguin can currently be seen on FOX’s Batman prequel series Gotham, which has been renewed for a fourth season, with Robin Lord Taylor portraying the iconic Batman rogue.
Matt Reeves’ The Batman, starring Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Joe Manganiello as Slade Wilson/Deathstroke, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner James Gordon and Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, has yet to be given a release date.
