According to a new report, Colin Farrell is in talks to join Matt Reeves’ The Batman as The Penguin.

Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. is in negotiations with Colin Farrell (Dumbo, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) to take on the role of The Penguin. There is no indication how deep into negotiations the parties are, but this would round out the three of the best-known villains said to appear in the film. He would join with Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman and Paul Dano as The Riddler. This would leave the rumored appearances by Firefly, Mad Hatter, and Two-Face left to be filled.

It would appear activity is ramping up on The Batman with rumors hitting just before this that Andy Serkis is in talks to play Alfred. With Jeffrey Wright finally being confirmed as Commissioner Gordon, it looks like all the pieces are falling together. Now we just wait for some confirmation.

The Batman is scheduled to hit theaters on June 25, 2021.
