With the Gotham pilot approaching, a show that will feature a young Oswald Cobblepot (The Penguin) as a low-level gang henchman, it is an appropriate time to take a look at previous incarnation of the famous Batman villain.

These images show the concept artwork behind what might be the Penguin most famous on-screen outing - being played by Danny DeVito in 1992's Batman Returns.

The sketches show a sinister and deformed Penguin wearing expensive coats and leaning on a walking stick, as well as actual penguins dressed up in rocket-packs, strapped with machine guns and wearing monocles. All these images were part of a recently auctioned collection.

So what do you think of the pictures? Do you think that Gotham's Oswald Cobblepot will look similar? How do you image a young Penguin would look? Write in with all your ideas below the line.
