It’s been a couple months since we first heard whispers of Colin Farrell possibly playing Oswald Chesterfield Cobblepot, a.k.a. The Penguin, in the upcoming Batman reboot. And now it’s been confirmed by director Matt Reeves himself.

Farrell joins an already impressive cast, including Robert Pattinson as Batman, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as The Riddler, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, John Turturro as mob boss Carmine Falcone and Jeffrey Wright as Jim Gordon. Peter Sarsgaard is also headed to Gotham, and although his role has not yet been revealed, rumour has it he could be playing Harvey Dent, the district attorney who eventually becomes Two-Face.

Reeves took to Twitter to share a gif of Farrell that features his In Bruges character shrugging, along with the caption, “Wait — is that you, #Oz?” The director has slowly been unveiling his cast on Twitter, using sweet little gifs paying homage to the actors, and Colin is the latest to get the social media treatment.

Argh, just let us know who Peter will be playing already!

Turturro is perfect for the head of the Gotham City mob, no? In Batman lore, it’s a gang war orchestrated by The Penguin that forces Falcone into retirement from a life of crime.

Looks like Alfred will have a lot of running around to do for Bruce.

At this point in time, Gordon will likely still be a detective. The commissioner gig comes later. Whatever the case, bring it, Jeffrey.

The Riddler has always been a little awkward, but Dano looks slick as hell here.

Hi, Zoe.

And helllloooo, R-Patz.

The Batman kicked off production this month in the U.K., and it sounds like filming is underway based on a recent tweet from Wright.

The latest adventure of the Caped Crusader is scheduled to hit theatres on June 25, 2021.
