“I arrived on organize and there was this guy walking around who was being so over self-confident, ” Penry-Jones said. “I had no idea who he was. He was being truly friendly, he was telling all these stories, I was like, ‘Who is this guy? ‘ I thought he might’ve been a supporting actor[ an additional to you and me ]. He continued on talk later, just really friendly, really nice, and I started noticing things about his garb. He had a brace on his leg and these weird scars on his face, and I remembered, ‘This is quite a lot of exertion they’ve gone to for a supporting artist…’ and abruptly I recognise, ‘Wait a minute this person must be playing the Penguin, oh my God that’s Colin Farrell! ‘”
We get a glimpse of Farrell’s Penguin in The Batman’s teaser trailer , and the actor previously discussed how he is excited about his role in the film and how there will be a got a couple of “tasty scenes.”
“I had only started it and I can’t wait to get back, ” Farrell said. “The creation of it, the aesthetic of the specific characteristics, has been fun and I actually am so excited to get back and explore it. And I haven’t get that much to do. I have a certain amount in the film. I am not all over it by any means. But there are a couple of some tasty scenes I have in it and my creation and I can’t wait to get back. Yeah, I totally feel like it is something that I have not had the opportunity to explore before. It feels original and fun. But I am only at the commencement of the travel so I can’t wait to get back and actually get into it.”
