Josh Gad has once again confirmed that he will not play The Penguin in Matt Reeves’ upcoming film The Batman starring Robert Pattinson.
After teasing his possible involvement and jokingly campaigning for the role in Matt Reeves’ The Batman for quite some time, Josh Gad killed all hope that he could be the next actor to take on the role of Iconic Batman villain The Penguin earlier this summer. While he may have only been joking around, Josh Gad emerged as a fan-favorite pick for Oswald Cobblepot, spawning countless pieces of fan art from fans who wanted to see the actor cast as the next Penguin opposite Robert Pattinson’s Caped Crusader.
Speaking with MTV News, Josh Gad poured more salt in the wound when he was asked about the Penguin and why he felt it was time to end the charade back in June:
“I felt like I was just taking it to a point that it just went too far. I’ve had so much fun with it, but it was just something where I was like, ‘I should really put this to bed. Everyday, I started getting asked questions about it. And I’m like, ‘As far as I know, I am not the Penguin. I need to put this all to bed then.'”
So what do you think? Are you disappointed Josh Gad won’t be playing The Penguin opposite Robert Pattinson? Are there any other comic book villains you would like to see Josh Gad play? Are you excited to see Robert Pattinson in The Batman? Let us know in the comments below!
While Josh Gad definitely won’t be appearing as the Penguin in Matt Reeves’ The Batman, the highly-anticipated superhero film is expected to feature a rogues gallery of villains including The Penguin and Catwoman opposite Robert Pattinson.
Plot details for Matt Reeves’ The Batman are still under wraps. Previous rumors once pointed to an earlier version of the script featuring Ben Affleck bookending the film as his current Batman while the film introduced a younger version of the Dark Knight. But with Ben Affleck officially retired from the role, Robert Pattinson has officially replaced the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League actor in the role.
While details are slim, Matt Reeves has confirmed that his film featuring Robert Pattinson is not based on Frank Miller’s Year One comic and will emphasize Batman as the world’s greatest detective more than previous films have in the past. Filming is expected to begin early next year.
Last month, Greig Fraser joined The Batman as its new cinematographer. His previous work includes Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Lion, and Zero Dark Thirty. He also shot the 2010 remake of Let Me In, which was written and directed by Matt Reeves.
The Batman opens in theaters on June 25, 2021. Stay tuned for the latest news on Josh Gad, Robert Pattinson, The Batman and the future of the DC Extended Universe.
