We just got a surprise first look at the much-anticipated “The Batman” from some set photos that were leaked from the streets of London. The set pictures show a few curious details, including what appears to be Colin Farrell dressed up as the iconic Batman supervillain Oswald Cobblepot, AKA The Penguin. 

The biggest takeaway from this first look at Farrell’s Penguin is the notably different style in this portrayal of the villain. Typically Cobblepot is a short, well-dressed, portly-man with a monocle and an umbrella. While Farrell is clearly drawing some inspiration from the comic book character, as he’s seen holding his go-to umbrella, he is also sporting a unique bleached white hairstyle and a buttoned-down, all-black peacoat and clad -- a look somewhat similar to his appearance as Percival Graves in “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”

While the photos are blurry, the ominous-looking figure very much looks like Farrell. 

The Matt Reeves-directed "Batman" film features Robert Pattinson as the titular Dark Knight and Farrell as the famed mobster and supervillain. Alongside these two, we’ll see Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle AKA Catwoman, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Jim Gordon, Paul Dano as Edward Nash AKA The Riddler, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Gotham’s most dangerous mob man. 

None of these characters were spotted on set, though. However, Screen Rant reports that people are theorizing that the mysterious figure on the motorcycle could be Pattinson as an undercover Bruce Wayne.

This Batman movie will supposedly focus on a more gritty and grounded detective tale, rather than the fantasy epic that was DCEU’s most recent “Justice League.” The look and portrayal of this incarnation of Penguin is going to reflect that, with an attitude and style that shows off Cobblepot’s wealth and psychopathic behavior, rather than the eccentric supervillain he’s typically written as. We’ll see something similar with Dano’s rendition of The Riddler as well when the movie premieres June 25, 2021.
