  • Colin Farrell is unrecognisable in photos from the set of The Batman.
  • The Irish actor who plays the Penguin was filming scenes with Robert Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz and John Turturro.
  • The movie is scheduled to be released in March 2022.

You'll have to look twice at these pictures of Colin Farrell on the set of The Batman.

Filming for the movie resumed this week after Robert tested positive for coronavirus in September.

The Irish actor who plays Oswald "Oz" Cobblepot/Penguin in the upcoming film is unrecognisable while filming what looks to be a funeral scene in Liverpool.

Wearing facial prosthetics, heavy make-up, and a thinning wig, the 44-year-old looked every bit the part of the villainous character.

Last week Warner Bros announced that the film directed by Matt Reeves had been pushed back to 4 March 2022.

According to an official synopsis, the film will centre on Batman's second year of fighting crime. It will explore corruption within Gotham City, how it ties to family and his encounter with the Riddler, played by Paul Dano.

During a panel interview at DC, Matt said his version of the film is inspired by classic noirs and that we will meet a very human and flawed Bruce Wayne.
