Gotham City will have to wait until COVID-19 is completely under control. However, that doesn’t mean Colin Farrell is ditching his fitness routine.
Colin Farrell Jogs Shirtless In LA
Conventionally, The Penguin has been one of the Caped Crusader’s more rotund villain. So it is going to be very compelling to see Colin Farrell’s version of the classic DC character when The Batman resumes its production. On Monday (May 4), Colin jogged through the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles. The 43-year-old actor looked amazing while exercising. Even though he opted to go shirtless on this run, he ensured that he wore his protective face mask! He donned his Adidas track pants and headband. He lead by example to show how to stay fit during this time of social distancing while staying safe and respectful of others.
Do you think a more buff version of Oswald Cobblept (the Penguin) take on Robert Pattinson’s Batman in The Batman? Or do you think Colin is doing cardio to help him bear with the weight of his character’s costume? The Phone Booth actor was supposedly seen gaining some pounds at the beginning of the year. Although that may be true, actor Rob McClure let the cat (or in this case, penguin) out of the bag about how Colin’s role will go big on the makeup and prosthetic.
Rob McClure On The Batman
Rob McClure said on Stars in the House that they’ve done an amazing job. It is a streamed series that Seth Rudetsky and James Wesley host. McClure underwent a fitting for prosthetic for the role of Mrs. Doubtfire on Broadway. McClure talked about the time when he went to get the process done. He walked in and the people there were like, ‘Oh, hang on, we just have to clear off this table.’ They were building the Penguin prosthetic for Colin Farrell in the new Batman movie. Seeing that, McClure said that he was like, ‘Oh, I’m in the right place.’
Rob didn’t disclose what Colin’s costume actually involved. Maybe an expanded gut or even flippers? Dany DeVito, famous for playing The Penguin in 1992’s Batman Returns, wore a nose-lip-and-brow prosthetic to fully capture the character’s bird-like features.
Colin Farrell Loves The Script!
The character’s look seemed still up in the air (which is funny, since penguins can’t fly) at 2020’s start. Colin said that he is still in the process of talking to Matt Reeves, the director and script writer. Colin said that Matt wrote a really beautiful, dark, moving script, really gorgeous while talking about the project on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in January. He said that it’s all very “hush-hush”, but it’s a really beautiful script, and Matt is passionate about it. So, they’re still in the process of finishing the designing of the aesthetic of the character.
