This transformation is part of the 44-year-old actor’s role as Oswald Cobblepot, who has come to be known as The Penguin, one of Batman’s enemies.

The character of Penguin appeared in the movie Batman Returns which premiered in 1992. At that time, senior actor Danny DeVito got the role.

A while back, Danny DeVito opened up about Colin’s involvement as The Penguin in the movie The Batman. “His performance will be extraordinary because he’s a great actor,” the 75-year-old actor told Collider.

For Colin Farrell himself, being able to be a part of The Batman movie is a very exciting opportunity.

The Irish actor admitted that the part of this film was not too much. However, he’s still proud to be tasked with staring in The Penguin. “There were some nasty scenes that I did and I can’t wait to do them again,” said the actor, who is believed to have been dating Angelina Jolie.
