The Batman: Here’s What Colin Farrell Wasn’t Allowed to Do on the Sets!

Colin Farrell, who plays a younger version of The Penguin in the film “The Batman,” has revealed that he was not allowed to smoke on filming. According to, the 45-year-old actor plays Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin in Matt Reeves’ new take on the Caped Crusader, but he claims that he was not allowed to light up by film executives because he is playing a younger version of the villain.

Farrell told Jake’s Takes: “I fought valiantly for a cigar, I even said at one stage, ‘Can I have it unlit?’, and they were like no. The Oz that we meet hasn’t embodied the energy of the Penguin that we recognise from the source comics and from previous films, so I’ll see if it goes again.” The ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ star also suggested that The Penguin is a role he would like to keep and play going forward in future movies.

Farrell said: “I’d love to explore it because he’s not an underboss, he’s not a boss, he’s just a soldier of Falcone at this stage. But he has great ambition and dreams of doing big things.” The actor previously revealed that his take was inspired by Fredo Corleone in ‘The Godfather’ as both characters feel as if they are “underestimated”.

He shared: “There’s a touch of John Cazale as Fredo in ‘The Godfather’. He’s a mid-level mobster guy and he’s got a bit of showmanship to him, but you can see that he wants more and that he’s been underestimated. He’s ready to make his move.”

Farrell has suggested that he only features in a handful of scenes during the film, which sees Robert Pattinson make his debut as the iconic superhero.

The star shared: “I’m only it for five or six scenes, so I can’t wait to see the film because it won’t be ruined by my presence. Really, it’s a freebie to me. I’ll get a little bit uncomfortable for the f****** nine minutes I have, and then the rest of it, I cannot wait to see how he (Reeves) brought this world to life.”
