The third season of Gotham will see Paul Reubens reprising his role as the father of Oswald Cobblepot, the Penguin. Reubens first played the role back in Tim Burton‘s Batman Returns in 1992. Will he still have the name Tucker Cobblepot, or will Gotham take liberties with the name, and more importantly, what will he look like? While we don’t know about the name, we can at least clear up any lingering doubts about how the character will look in Gotham.
That’s Ruebens in Batman Returns above and here’s the tweet giving us the first look at his new look in Gotham.

That is interesting.. the look, and how the two resemble each other to a certain extent. The scenes between Reubens and Robin Lord Taylor should be fascinating, the loss of his mother affected him greatly, throw in any lingering feelings about how his father left the family and you’ve got a great mixture for two very talented actors to work with.
The Penguin has a lot of work to do, getting his criminal empire back on track, will his father support him in that endeavor or hinder him?
