The Batman star Colin Farrell recently revealed that his Penguin doesn’t have “much to do” in the upcoming movie.
One of the most anticipated movies currently on pause due to the coronavirus pandemic is The Batman, the brand new take on the Caped Crusader from Matt Reeves. The coronavirus has caused numerous productions, including The Batman, to go on pause so that the film’s cast and crew members can maintain social distancing. One of the film’s many high profile actors is Colin Farrell, who is currently in isolation, doing his part to flatten the curve. In a recent interview with GMA, Farrell briefly discussed his role as The Penguin and let it slip that he doesn’t have a whole lot to do in the film. Here’s what he had to say:
“And I haven’t got that much to do. I have a certain amount in the film. I am not all over it by any means. But there are a couple of some tasty scenes I have in it and my creation and I can’t wait to get back.”
The Batman is chock-full of villains including Colin Farrell’s Penguin, Paul Dano’s Riddler, John Turturro’s Carmine Falcone and Zoë Kravitz’s Catwoman. It’s intriguing for Farrell to suggest that he doesn’t have much to do in the film considering he’s one of the Dark Knight’s most iconic foes. Of course, we don’t really know who the “main” villain in the film is but it’s safe to say that it might not be The Penguin. With so many villains in the film, it’s easy to imagine their evil exploits being a group effort. We have about a year and a half until we see The Batman, so we’ll have no choice but to speculate how prominent Farrell is in The Batman.
