Batman fans first compare views of Colin Farrell’s Penguin to Val Kilmer

Saturday was an epic day for fans with DC FanDome offering new trailers, looks and other information on some of DC’s most eagerly awaited movies and projects such as Wonder Woman 1984, The Suicide Squad, en Justice League by Zack Snyder. However, the most exciting offer was finally saved with the reveal of the first trailer for Matt Reeves’ The Batman. The trailer gave fans some of their first and best looks at Robert Pattinson as the titular hero, Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle, and Jeffrey Wright as Jim Gordon. There was even a look at what turned out to be Oswald Cobblepot’s Colin Farrell’s Oswald Cobblepot – but some fans think it’s quite a different actor, none other than former Batman himself Val Kilmer.

On Twitter, fans can not help but notice that the suspect Farrell Penguin has a strong resemblance to Kilmer, who mainly played Batman / Bruce Wayne in Joel Schumacher’s 1995 Batman forever. Well, it’s important to note that no one is suggesting that Kilmer appear in it The Batman – Many fans actually hold out the hope that it will be announced that Kilmer will have an appearance in Ezra Miller’s The Flash instead of teaming up with Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck who both reprise their roles as the Dark Knight. Instead, they simply point out that equality is a kind of impediment and that we must admit, we cannot escape it. As for the trailer, you can check it out yourself in the video above.

You can see for yourself how people think the actor assumes everyone that Farrell’s Penguin looks a lot like Kilmer. Some even joked that the film could have saved money on prosthetics by simply casting Kilmer in the role, while others simply did a double recording. So, read on and be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments.

The Batman is currently set to hit theaters on October 1, 2021.

That’s not Kilmer.
