BATMAN star Colin Farrell appears to have decided to hand over his badge as a certified Hollywood hunk.
The 44-year-old actor looked utterly unrecognizable as razor-nosed villain The Penguin in a new trailer for The Batman movie.
In fact, some fans couldn’t believe he was the star of In Bruges and Total Recall under all the makeup he wore.
He plays crime lord Oswald “The Penguin” Cobblepot, who earned the creepy nickname for his birdlike appearance.
Colin put on weight to play the part and got covered in prosthetics and makeup.
The actor stars alongside Robert Pattison as Batman – aka Bruce Wayne – while Zoe Kravitz is Catwoman and Andy Serk is the superhero’s loyal butler, Alfred.
As one fan put it on Twitter, “The craziest thing about the Batman trailer is it’s Colin Farrell. ”
Another asked, “Is Twitter bothering me or is it really Colin Farrell as Penguin in the Batman trailer?” If so, is this one of the best transformational makeup I’ve ever seen? ”
A third sighed, “Tbh a little disappointed that we didn’t have Colin Farrell as a hot penguin.” ”
A trailer for The Batman was released today to give fans a first look at the film directed by Matt Reeves.

Colin’s penguin is only shown for a moment, standing fleetingly in the rain as the camera bulbs light up his face.
The trailer also featured the first look at the iconic Batmobile, which was seen shooting bright blue flames from behind.
The film is only finished a quarter after production ceases for the coronavirus pandemic and is set to resume filming in September with a release date of 2021.
