CelebNMovies247.com is awaiting confirmation if indeed that Colin Farrell and Warner Bros. will come to an agreement and he will officially be playing the Penguin.
The Irish-born actor has turned in an array of performances in very different films that include Dumbo, Widows, Roman J. Israel Esq, The Lobster and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and has dialed up the intensity in a superhero villain role before when he menaced Ben Affleck’s Daredevil character in the showy role of Bullseye, years ago.

For weeks, rumors about a Penguin casting have been circulating online. Many thought it was Jonah Hill, then Seth Rogan, but the names keep changing each week.
In September, it was reported that Jeffry Wright was in talks to play Commissioner James Gordon, which has since been confirmed by Reeves. In October, it was announced that Zoe Kravitz had been cast as Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman. Then, just days later, we learned that Paul Dano would play Edward Nashton/The Riddler. Andy Serkis is also in talks to play Bruce’s loyal butler, Alfred Pennyworth.
The Penguin was played by Danny DeVito in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns in 1992.
The Batman starring Robert Pattinson, is directed by Matt Reeves, who will also produce alongside Dylan Clark. While casting is still underway, the film is scheduled to be released on June 25, 2021.
