“The Batman” director Matt Reeves has confirmed that actor Colin Farrell will be starring in the film as “The Penguin.”
The director tweeted a gif of Farrell from the film “In Bruges” with the caption “Wait — is that you, #Oz?” (Oz is the shortened form of the DC character’s given name, Oswald Cobblepot.) Reeves had tweeted similar gifs for the other actors who have joined the project.
Reports of Farrell’s casting started circulating in November last year.
He joins a cast that includes Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon, and Peter Sarsgaard in a mystery role.
“The Batman” is already in production and is scheduled to hit the theaters on June 25, 2021.
