The Batman omits a key part of the penguin costume
Colin Farrell, who plays The Penguin in Matt Reeves’ The Batman, reveals that the film does not include an iconic piece of the villain’s attire.
Colin Farrell, who will play Oswald Cobblepot / The Penguin in The batman, revealed that the upcoming film is removing an iconic piece from the villain’s wardrobe.
“There is no top hat [in The Batman]”Farrell revealed in an interview with Empire alongside his co-stars Paul Dano and Zoë Kravitz, who will also play gallery staples of Batman’s thugs, the Riddler and Catwoman, respectively. “There’s a scene where I have an umbrella in my hand, but it doesn’t have a trigger on the handle. He has a lame walk, so there’s a little waddle in there. But Oz doesn’t. is not yet completely inhabiting the Penguin mythology and is not too fond of the nickname. “
Prior to that, Farrell also revealed how many scenes of the film he would be in. “I’m only there for five or six scenes [as Penguin], so I can’t wait to see the movie because it won’t be spoiled by my presence, “he said.” It’s a gift for me. I’m going to be a little uncomfortable for the fucking nine minutes I have and the rest, I can’t wait to see how [writer/director Matt Reeves] brought this world to life. “
It was confirmed earlier this year that The Penguin will be receiving a spinoff series on HBO Max, which will serve as its origin story, although a deal has yet to be finalized between Farrell and HBO Max. This would be the second spin-off of The batman, as the film would also launch a series focused on the Gotham City Police Department.
Farrell isn’t the only actor in The batman to discuss an important detail of the character design of a Batman villain. In a recent interview, Kravitz explained his own take on Catwoman’s iconic claws. “We shot two months before my 40s and it all stopped, so at that point I started growing my nails because we couldn’t do manicures, and then I had this idea of ‘take it further… so I called Matt and I was like, I have this idea, we should be doing crazy, slutty, scary nails that looked like claws, ”she explained. “No nail polish on them, so they looked more like claws, and we were able to squeeze it in at the last minute.”
As for the film itself, a recent rumor claims that a sequel has been lit. However, The batman Star Robert Pattinson recently opened up about his own plans for his character Bruce Wayne, which will be split into two sequels. “I made a sort of map of where Bruce’s psychology would develop over the course of two more films,” he said. “I would love to do it.”
Directed and co-written by Matt Reeves, The batman opens in theaters on March 4, 2022.
