Interesting? Or just WTF? Deadline is reporting that Colin Farrell has been cast as The Penguin in the upcoming Batman moving starring Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, with Paul Dano as The Riddler and Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman. Earlier reports had both Josh Gad and Jonah Hill in the running for the character (who has previously been played by Danny DeVito and Burgess Meredith).
So, a sexy, brooding Penguin? Possibly, But Colin can definitely bring the quirkiness, we know that. We’ve seen him turn in some powerhouse performances in The Lobster, The Killing of a Sacred Deer, In Bruges, Seven Psychopaths, True Detective, and more. I guess I’m willing to see where this goes.
