Colin Farrell has revealed that he will only be part of the upcoming DC Comics transformation, The Batman, for “five or six scenes”.
The In Bruges star used heavy prostheses to fundamentally change his appearance to play Oswald Cobblepot, AKA The Penguin.
The penguin is one of the basic adversaries of Batman, played by Robert Pattinson in the film.
Regarding the web taping of Happy Sad Confused, Farrell said, “I’m only in for five or six scenes so I can’t wait to see the movie as my essence doesn’t destroy it.
“Really, it’s a gift for me. I get a little embarrassed for the damn nine minutes I have and after that I can’t see the rest of the way [director Matt Reeves] rejuvenated this world given the fact that the sets were unusual, the creation plan [was] extraordinary, his use of music and sound will be phenomenal and as you said the cast of each of them, Robert and Zoë [Kravitz] zu – without a doubt an unparalleled line-up.
He later suggested that he had “five or six scenes or seven scenes” in the film, which also stars Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, Peter Skarsgaard, Andy Serkis and John Turturro.
“As I said, I only had five or six scenes or seven scenes, and I wasn’t accurate – I was in the early stages to take a look at what I believed I could do or contribute to some misfortune,” said he.
About his actual change, he said, “When I saw what Mike [Marino, cosmetics artist] did the whole person sounded good to me. I swear to god I saw what he did and I just said, “Okay, okay.” And I was really happy about it. Besides being a good presentation in case anyone at any point finds out what I’m doing in Batman, I’m happy to take 49% of the credit. “
