Matt Reeves Confirms Colin Farrell Cast as Penguin

It that you, Colin Farrell?

Batman filmmaker Matt Reeves took to social media on Monday to officially announce that Farrell was cast as Oswald Cobblepot, better known as Penguin, in the forthcoming superhero movie.

Reeves captioned a gif image of Farrell with: “Wait — is that you, #Oz?” with Oz being a nickname for Oswald, the Penguin’s given name.

The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, in addition to Paul Dano as the Riddler, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon, and Peter Sarsgaard in a still unconfirmed role. 

It was first rumored in November that Farrell could be set to star as the umbrella-wielding, suit-wearing antagonist after it was confirmed that Jonah Hill exited the project. 

The Batman debuts on June 25th, 2021.
