    I wonder if they'll give him a fatsuit or just roll with handsome Penguin.

    Literally any other character would be a better fit

    This and Serkis as Alfred are the only casting choices I just don't get. If anything, it should legit be the other way around. Serkis makes much more sense as Penguin.

    I'm just ... This got me ****ed up fr

    Serkis is tailor-made to play strange, warped characters (that’s a compliment lol), rather than a straitlaced butler/guardian for Bruce. I’m very interested to see how all these picks gel together. It’s going to feel a lot different to previous Bat-flicks.

    Serkis is twelve years older than Farrell. It makes sense that he would be better suited for Alfred.

    Yeah, I get it. It's "outside the box".

    But we've already had this problem of actors that'd be great for one character cast as an entirely different character throughout the ENTIRE DCEU. Just... Can they for once NOT do that, please?

    I mean you could've said the same thing about Gary Oldman when he got cast to play Gordon. It really isn't that weird.

    Something like this maybe? No, mask though. Maybe make him blind in one eye instead of a monocle.

    I really hope they give him a fatsuit and mess his face up.

    Not too sure about a fatsuit. Colin is the kind of actor that would put on the weight. He doesn't need to be too fat, but he definitely needs the beak nose.

    I hope they stick with handsome Penguin. Or at least nothing so extra as a broken bottle jabbed into his eye socket doubling for a monocle like the Arkham games. Always hated that.

    Serkis seems more suited to Penguin than he is to Alfred or Farrell is to Penguin, and if I had to try cast Farrell as any Batman character I’d think maybe Harvey Dent.

    That's the main problem I have with this.

    I ****ING DESPISE Telltale Penguin, and that's, like, the main type I'd see Farrell doing.

    Was not expecting this casting but it is interesting in the least. I love Farrell, he's underrated and a great actor.

    The Killing of a Sacred Deer and The Lobster are good indicators for his take on the Penguin.
