Regarding Gad, he's one of those guys that's like.....fanboys assume he's a one note actor that does goofball shtick in his roles, which he does, but he's actually a pretty good actor overall if you really watch the stuff he's in. Hell, he kinda sounds like Robin Lord Taylor vocally.

I can totally see Gad as Oswald, the only problem is I've never seen him do dramatic, but if he can pull it off I'd love to see it.

As far as I know Penguin has only ever had an accent in the Arkham games.

Correct. Penguin has no accent. For some reason the Arkham games made him cockney.

The movie was godawful, but he genuinely cracked me up at the end.

Not sure I'd be keen on a Penguin so much younger than Batman.

Love the idea of Penguin in live action again but I don't like this unless he's playing a younger Cobblepot in a flashback, say 10 years prior to Justice League when the bat family were roaming around.

Reeves cited early 80s as his "coming of age" time period when talking about Let Me In so it's probably later than the 60s.

And this quote:

And he is a tortured soul who is grappling with his past and trying to find a way to be in a world that has a lot that’s wrong with it and trying to find a way to reconcile all of that.

“That is a really powerful character, in the same way that Caesar is such a powerful character.”
Doesn't sound like the 60s cheese to me.

70's would be my guess, considering Reeves' age.
