Fans have been left stunned after seeing Colin Farrell’s shocking Penguin transformation for the upcoming Batman movie.
After seeing the trailer, people can’t believe it’s him…
Ever since the movie was announced, fans have been eagerly awaiting The Batman trailer to drop.
And this week, their prayers were finally answered.
But the brand new trailer has ramped up excitement like never before.
Colin Farrell’s portrayal of one of the franchise’s most iconic roles – supervillain, Penguin.
Fans had to do a double-take to realize that it was Farrell in the first place.
And fans quickly took to social media to express their disbelief.
The acclaimed Irish actor first got inspired to be on the big screen after watching Steven Spielberg’s E.T.
The star is now best known for appearing in films, such as Tigerland, The Recruit, and Minority Report.
As well as working alongside some of the best directors and co-stars in the business.
The actor is starring in The Batman – Matt Reeves’ take on the popular superhero franchise.
Seeing Farrell star alongside the likes of Zoe Kravitz, Robert Pattinson, and Paul Dano.
“The whole prospect is really exciting,” he said. “I’m ecstatic to be part of that universe. There are certain words that are part of my internal lexicon, and those words are Gotham City, Penguin, Joker, Batman, Bruce Wayne, Harvey Dent… all of those things.”
But, rest assured, it has been reported that the movie will begin filming again in early September.
The trailer for the movie finally dropped – and we got to see Farrell in full Penguin attire.
He looks totally unrecognizable.
On Monday, Mike Marino, the make-up artist on The Batman, confirmed that Farrell did appear in the trailer.
He shared a picture of the transformation to his Instagram page using the hashtags: “#colinfarrell”, “#batman” and “sfx.”
Reactions have been strong, to say the least.
How different does he look?
The Batman is scheduled to hit theaters on October 1, 2021.
