Colin Farrell wants to star in a sequel to “Batman” | movies

Colin Farrell would like to star in a Batman sequel.

The 46-year-old actor played mobster Oswald “Oz” Cobblepot, aka The Penguin, opposite Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, and while he’ll begin work on a standalone HBO Max series about his character next year, he’d also like to make a big comeback screen in the main saga because he had such a good time filming the first movie.

Asked if he would be willing to join Robert and director Matt Reeves in the sequel, he told Entertainment Tonight: “Oh my God, are you kidding me?! It’s so much fun, you’ve got to be kidding me [with] me? I’ve been around the block, man. It was a light sport, I mean… it was a joy.

“You know, Matt is doing his bitch, hovering over the keyboard and just plotting out the story because he’s so meticulous.

“He’s so obsessed with what he does, but it’s over [HBO Max’s] Penguin [series] too. I mean, he’s not going to direct, but he understands the structure of scripts and who’s going to direct them. And yes, it’s exciting.”

Colin insisted that he couldn’t have made Penguin what he is without the incredible work of make-up artist and prosthetics designer Michael Marino.

He said: “I was hidden under Mike Marino’s work. Mike Marino is such a genius – what he did, what he created. [Oz]. I really can’t. It’s 50-50, maybe 49-51 in his favor.”

In April, Matt teased that he was working on a DC blockbuster.

He said: “Thank you all for your overwhelming support of Batman. We couldn’t have gotten this far without the faith and enthusiasm of all your teams around the world.

“I’m so excited to be back in this world for the next chapter.”
