The Batman is currently in post-production, and while we wait for it to release in 2022, Colin Farrell is giving us some info on just how Oswald Cobblepot we’ll see.
Anytime a film has known multiple villains there is a fear that all of them will feel rushed, or spend too much time jockeying for position. In a new interview with Joshua Horowitz, it sounds as though Colin Farrell’s Oswald Cobblepot will be used fairly judiciously.
“Obviously, COVID began to grip the world while we were shooting and I left London in March and we were stood down for four or five months and then we went back. And then obviously Robert [Pattinson] got sick and that was like, “f****** Batman has COVID. “Batman has COVID.”
No, it’s just like cracking her on. So, but we finished it after I think they were probably from first turnover to last cut was probably 12 or 14 months the shoot and he’s cutting together now. I haven’t heard sight nor sound of ’em. I don’t know what he’s up to. But I know he’s deep into it and I’m only in it for five or six scenes so I can’t wait to see the film because it won’t be won’t be ruined by my presence.
Yeah, totally. Like really it’s a freebie for me. I’ll get a little bit uncomfortable for the f****** nine minutes I have and then the rest of it. I cannot wait to see how he brought this world to life because the setts were extraordinary. The production design extraordinary. And then his use of music and sound will be extraordinary. As you said the cast from you know all them Roberts is always Yeah, extraordinary cast.
Please note the strong language in the video.
On #happysadconfused, Colin Farrell revealed he’s in 5 or 6 scenes in THE BATMAN and reflected on the shoot, “Fuckin’ Batman has covid?!”

With Riddler (Paul Dano), Catwoman (Zoe Kravitz), and more in the film, it’ll be interesting to see how much time each of them gets.
The Batman is scheduled to hit theaters on March 4, 2022.
