We learned just minutes ago that Andy Serkis is in talks to play Alfred Pennyworth in Matt Reeves‘ The Batman, and now Deadline is reporting that Colin Farrell is also in talks for a juicy villain role.
To be more precise, Farrell is in talks to play the Penguin.
The character, whose real name is Oswald Chesterfield Cobblepot, was of course famously portrayed on the big screen by Danny DeVito in Batman Returns in 1992.
The Penguin first appeared in December 1941 and was created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger.
The Batman hits theaters on June 25, 2021.
