Hollywood heartthrob unrecognisable as the Penguin while filming big budget Batman spin-off – can you guess who it is? | The Sun

HE'S been a Hollywood heartthrob for decades now, but that's not the case in these pictures that emerged from the set of a big budget Batman spin-off.

The actor transformed into the Penguin as he took to New York City to shoot scenes for the namesake Max series.

Colin Farrell, 47, sported a dramatically different look while wearing a fatuit beneath a white shirt and black trousers with braces.

With heavy prosthetics, make-up and receding hairline wig required to play the role, Colin looked worlds away from his suave self.

He was pictured with an unidentified actor for one scene while surrounded by TV crews.

His character Oswald Cobblepot gained the creepy nickname for his bird-like appearance.

Details for the plotline have not yet been released but it is believed to centre on Gotham City being in chaos.

While a premiere date is yet to be set, a disturbing trailer was released earlier this year.

It begins by panning out to the Gotham skyscape, with Colin's character heard saying: "This is one of those moments you’ve got to ask yourself, what kind of life do I want?

"The world ain’t built for guys like us."

After scooting into a building away from the rain, it appears all may not be straightforward for The Penguin.

He is seen being bundled by a gang and threatened by a knife.

Yet that doesn't stop The Penguin eerily hailing himself "the new Kingpin of Gotham" in a chilling comment as the trailer wraps.

Back in 2020, fans had the same complaint about the Phone Booth star as he again transformed into the baddie.

Usually chiselled actor Colin looked plumper around the middle and was potentially wearing a 'fat suit' as he carried a large umbrella.

He looked terrifying as he walked alongside Robert Pattinson who was playing the lead role of Bruce Wayne/Batman.

At the time, one fan spluttered on Twitter: "The craziest thing about The Batman trailer is that this is Colin Farrell."

Colin joins a long list of illustrious actors to take on the role of Penguin including Danny DeVito in the 1992 film, Batman Returns.
