Audiences could hardly believe Colin’s transformation for his role as The Penguin in the upcoming DC Comics feature The Batman. Colin portrays the iconic comic book character, also known as Oswald Cobblepot, for the Matt Reeves-helmed film, slated for a 2022 release due to production halts amid the global COVID-19 pandemic. Among his cast members, Colin is joined by Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/ Batman, Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle/ Catwoman, Paul Dano as Edward Nashton/ The Riddler and more.Upon seeing the trailer for the first time, fans couldn’t get over Colin’s look as The Batman villain. The actor was weighted down with prosthetics, wearing a dark trench coat and suit, and more. Once photos from the set of the film circulated, perspective audiences got an even closer look at all of the physical alterations the actor went through to capture The Penguin’s look.
When it comes to Colin’s current hairstyle, however, the actor might be prepping for a film role currently in pre-production. Colin will reunite with his In Bruges director Martin McDonagh for an untitled project. The film will also see Colin back together with his In Bruges co-star, Brendan Gleeson.
