If you had a hard time spotting Colin Farrell in The Batman teaser, don’t worry, so did we.
The teaser for The Batman starring Robert Pattinson dropped over the weekend during DC FanDome. Whilst Pattinson and Catwoman actress Zoë Kravitz look extremely sexy in their costumes, Farrell is completely unrecognisable.
Debates as to whether the Irish actor was indeed The Penguin became a hot topic on Twitter until It got confirmed.
Many fans were left in disbelief. Some fans noted that the actor resembled Richard Kind and named Farrell’s transformation as one of the best makeup transformations they’ve seen thus far.
Speaking on his role as The Penguin, the 44-year old actor said: “The creation of it, the aesthetic of the character, has been fun and I really am so excited to get back and explore it.”
Unfortunately, Farrell claims that there won’t be as many scenes of him as The Penguin as one might hope.
“I haven’t got that much to do. I have a certain amount in the film. I am not all over it by any means. But there are a couple of some tasty scenes I have in it and my creation and I can’t wait to get back.” said Farrell.

Don’t judge a book by its cover, for behind all this makeup, is a geek just like you. To simply put it, superheroes, Star Wars, Harry Potter and all things gore and creepy makes this girly girl swoon.
