Here’s What Josh Gad Looks Like As The Penguin For Matt Reeves’ The Batman

Josh Gad The Penguin The Batman Matt Reeves Robert Pattinson The Batman

Fans think Josh Gad would be perfect as The Penguin in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and impressive new fan art proves it.

Batman hasn’t starred in a solo movie on the big screen since 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises, the final chapter of director Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy. Ben Affleck debuted a new big-screen Dark Knight in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a role that he reprised in 2016’s Suicide Squad and 2017’s Justice League. Ben Affleck has since left the role and although a new Caped Crusader has yet to be cast in the Matt Reeves-directed Batman movie, fans seem pretty sure that Josh Gad would be the perfect actor for The Penguin.

The Penguin is one of Batman’s most iconic villain, who has had many different interpretations over the years. The Penguin has appeared on the big screen only once, played by Danny DeVito in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns. Many fans have since expressed their desire to see actor Josh Gad play The Penguin and thanks to incredible fan art from William Gray via Instagram, fans can get a glimpse at what Josh Gad could look like as The Penguin for the highly-anticipated Matt Reeves film. Check out the awesome artwork in the post below.

Josh Gad has shown throughout his career that he can play both very goofy and very serious characters, which is one of many reasons fans want to see the actor in Matt Reeves’ Batman film. The official cast of villains for the film has yet to be revealed but the film has been given an official release date of June 25th, 2021.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding Matt Reeves’ upcoming Batman movie as soon as more information becomes available. Do you think Josh Gad would be great as The Penguin? If you’re not a fan of Josh Gad, then who do you think would be the perfect live-action version of The Penguin? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

The latest DC Extended Universe film is Shazam!, which hits theaters in just a few short weeks. Check out the full synopsis for the film:

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).

Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans, and Djimon Hounsou. Shazam! will be released in theaters on April 5, 2019.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’

Previous1 of 7Next

Batman Ben Affleck Matt ReevesBen Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.

Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.

Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.

In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.

Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender X-Men

Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.

Ben Barnes

The Punisher Ben Barnes Billy Russo Jigsaw Marvel

Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.

Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling Blade Runner 2049

I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.

Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm Mad Men

Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.

Armie Hammer

Armie Hammer The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.

Richard Madden

Richard Madden Bodyguard

Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
