Colin Farrell in talks to play Penguin in ‘The Batman’



Warner Bros. is negotiating with Colin Farrell to play the Penguin in the Matt Reeves-directed “The Batman.” If the deal closes, he will round out the trio of villains going against Rob Pattinson’s caped crusader, with Paul Dano as the Riddler and Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman.

The Irish-born actor has turned in an array of performances in very different films that include “Dumbo,” “Widows,” “Roman J. Israel Esq.,” “The Lobster” and “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” and has dialed up the intensity in a superhero villain role before when he menaced Ben Affleck’s “Daredevil” character in the showy role of Bullseye, years ago.

The Penguin was played by Danny DeVito in Tim Burton’s “Batman Returns” in 1992.

Farrell is repped by CAA
