An unrecognizable face
It should be noted that during the filming of The Batman at the beginning of the year, a series of photographs had been leaked from the set where Colin Farrell appeared with extra kilos and with platinum hair. A look that attracted attention, but was practically a hoax for everyone.
Danny DeVito recently spoke to Collider to show his excitement about Colin Farrell's upcoming performance as The Penguin: “I haven't spoken to him since (Dumbo), but I'm looking forward to the opportunity. I think whatever happens, (Farrell) will be great because he's a great actor. All you have to worry about is Oswald Cobblepot showing up at your house. “
The Batman has a premiere scheduled for the October 1, 2021.
