Colin Farrell Teases 'The Penguin' Series


Colin Farrell, who was marvelous as The Penguin in The Batman, is speaking out on his return to the character for the small screen.

“The only thing I had an idea was that I wasn’t nearly getting to explore the character as much as I wanted to,” Farrell said on the red carpet. “Because there was all this extraordinary work done by [makeup artists] Mike Marino and Mike Fontaine and his team, and I just thought it was the tip of the iceberg, pardon the pun, that we were getting to do the six or seven scenes that we did in the film. I was grateful for them, but I wanted more.”

He went on to discuss returning for a series...

Farrell said he then “had a bit of a thought about it” and talked to producer Dylan Clark, who was also keen on the idea. But what really made him want to do “The Penguin” spinoff was the work of makeup artists Marino and Fontaine, who were responsible for Farrell’s shocking transformation into the supervillain.

“Honest to god, any thought I had about an extended series was to do with Mike Marino’s work. I just knew there was so much to do with it — age it up, age it down,” Farrell continued. “He’s just such a genius, Mike, so it was his work that was the inspiration, really.”

Farrell also revealed he went to Starbucks in full Penguin disguise while filming The Batman.
