It has been known for a little while now that Colin Farrell (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) will be playing The Penguin in Matt Reeves’ The Batman. However, when the first teaser was revealed fans had a hard time believing it was actually him.

The fact that this is indeed Colin Farrell in The Batman teaser is just stunning.
