THE BATMAN: Did BEAUTY AND THE BEAST Star Josh Gad Just Tease A Role As The Penguin?

THE BATMAN: Did BEAUTY AND THE BEAST Star Josh Gad Just Tease A Role As The Penguin?

Frozen's Josh Gad is done interrogating Daisy Ridley about Star Wars: The Last Jedi and has now taken to social media to possibly drop a hint that he'll be showing up in The Batman!

Social media is buzzing this morning after Beauty and the Beast star Josh Gad shared a photo of The Penguin with his followers. As a result, speculation is running rampant that the actor could have been cast as the villain in The Batman. It would make sense for more of the Caped Crusader's rogues to show up, and while Gad seems a bit young for the role, that could be easily changed with prosthetics.

This would certainly be a pretty inventive bit of casting on the part of The Batman director Matt Reeves, but you'd think this image would herald an announcement of some sort. It's possible Gad may have met for the role...or that he just so happens to be a pretty big fan of the comic book character. 

There are, of course, any number of reasons why Gad might have shared this photos, but it's still fun to speculate! The actor does follow Geoff Johns and Nightwing director Chris McKay, so perhaps we'll actually see the villain show up in that movie. We're obviously just going to have to wait and see. 

How would you feel about Gad playing The Penguin in the DC Films Universe? Sound off below.
