Robert Pattinson ‘s transition from Twilight heartbeat until the next Batman was not smooth. But fans, initially outraged by his casting, forgot about the actor’s many transformations over the years. In the same way, co-star Colin Farrell disappears in the role of “The Penguin”. In fact, Farrell’s makeup is so convincing to another actor on the set The Batman failed to recognize him.
Screenwriter-director Matt Reeves has assembled an epic cast
Although some fans doubted Pattinson’s ability to slip the lead, The Batman constantly wins over skeptics with his supporting cast. In addition to Farrell’s The Penguin, director Matt Reeves stars Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, and Paul Dano as The Fortune Teller.
From the first trailer, it looks like Dano will be the main villain in The Batman. However, fans still have something to discover about the film. In the footage published so far, Jeffrey Wright’s commissioner Jim Gordon is perhaps the most prominent. That makes sense, given that DC has already announced a series of HBO Max backstories focused on Gotham police.

Even one of Colin Farrell’s colleagues did not recognize him as a Penguin
Still, Farrell’s interpretation of Penguin is certainly one of the elements that fans are most curious about. Previously, the actor has undergone intense makeup for such films Terrible bosses and The lobster. But the first glance at his “Penguin” led fans to persuade actor Richard Kind to join The Batman. Even Wright admitted that he could not recognize Farrell.
“I’ve worked with this makeup artist before and it’s just amazing,” Wright told The Jess Cagle Show on SiriusXM recently. “Colin lasted one day, and I walked past him [laughs] I was like, “Okay, dude, what’s going on?” Where’s Colin? Are we going to shoot? This is quite remarkable. “
