Josh Gad expressed an interest in playing The Penguin almost from the moment Warner Bros. announced that Matt Reeves had signed on to direct The Batman. But there are additional actors out there who’ve also made it known that they’d like to take on the role of the famous Batman villain.

According to Variety's Justin Kroll, fans will see Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin, on the big screen sooner than they may have expected. The correspondent added that the character could show up in either The Batman or the upcoming Birds of Prey.

Kroll tweeted that according to his sources, Warner Bros. intends to include the villain in a film ASAP. If that’s accurate, we can assume that Cobblepot will be The Batman’s main antagonist, although earlier outlines for the reboot cited Deathstroke as the film’s villain.
