Josh Gad has sent Twitterverse into a frenzy just with one tweet.
The “Beauty And The Beast” star raised speculations when he tweeted a photo of The Penguin 2 days ago (Wednesday, 3rd May). Because maybe, just maybe, Gad might be playing the fictional supervillain in the upcoming Batman movie?

Of course, Gad could have tweeted the panel out of fun or just to watch the reactions. Or he could just have been a big fan of the character.
However, what fueled speculations was the fact that “The Batman” producers Jon Berg and Geoff Johns recently followed Gad. Before Joe Manganiello was confirmed as Deathstroke, the exact thing happened too.
There has been no official announcement, but fans are surely hoping for him to take on the role. People are already responding to his tweet with congratulatory and celebratory messages. Some extremely talented fans have also taken it upon themselves to share fan arts of how Gad would look like in full The Penguin costume.

We have to say, we totally see it happening 😉
The upcoming DC movie was revealed to be titled “The Batman” by Batman (Ben Affleck) himself. Aside from acting in the movie, Affleck will also be co-writing the script. There’s no official release date yet, but filming will definitely start this year.
