Lots of news coming out of New York Comic Con this weekend, but one bit of news has some Gotham fans and Batman fans alike kind of happy. It was announced that Paul Reubens aka Pee-Wee will be playing the Penguin’s father once again.
Robin Lord Taylor revealed during the show’s panel at New York Comic Con.
“He will be showing up very soon,” Taylor teased, before letting his fan enthusiasm out. “Pee-Wee Herman is playing my dad! What the hell? Oh my god!”
Fittingly, Reubens has already played the role of the Batman villain’s father before — he appeared as Tucker Cobblepot in 1992’s Batman Returns. There, you can see Pee-Wee with the iconic monocle Penguin look minus the chubbiness.
