Fantastic Beasts star Colin Farrell transforms into The Penguin for Robert Patttinson’s The Batman in a new concept design for the highly-anticipated DC Comics movie.
Colin Farrell’s road to joining The Batman was something of a long one. Originally, Frozen star Josh Gad was said to be up for the role of Oswald Cobblepot in the upcoming movie. While talks never happened, it did not stop the actor from having fun with the rumor on social media and frequently commenting on the movie’s casting choices.
Later on, Jonah Hill was rumored to be up for the part after it was reported that he was in talks for Robert Pattinson’s The Batman. After Jonah Hill dropped out, Colin Farrell was reported to be in talks for the coveted role. Eventually, The Batman helmer Matt Reeves took to his personal Twitter account to confirm that Collin Farell has officially been cast as The Penguin, following in the footsteps of Danny DeVito.
Since Colin Farrell was cast as The Penguin in Robert Pattinson’s The Batman, artists have taken to the internet to give their rendition of the actor as the owner of the Iceberg Lounge. Most recently, Instagram user spdrmnkyxxiii shared an impressive concept design of what he thinks Colin Farrell could look like as The Penguin on the big screen. You can check out the artwork below.

Full plot details on Robert Pattinson’s The Batman are being kept under lock and key, but we know that the film will revolve around a younger version of Bruce Wayne and feature a Rogues’ Gallery of villains that includes Catwoman, The Penguin, and The Riddler. The Matt Reeves film will follow the Dark Knight during his early years as Gotham City’s protector and will make use of the hero’s detective skills to a greater extent than previous DC films. It is expected to be the first chapter in a new Batman trilogy with Robert Pattinson.
Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the Dark Knight, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.
The Batman is currently set to hit theaters on June 25, 2021.
