    In Matt Reeves‘s ‘The Batman’, The Penguin could not satisfy his nicotine cravings. But this time, Colin Farrell went to extreme lengths to keep his character true to its source.

    In a recent interview with Jake’s Takes, the actor shared that he was determined to get the authentic look for The Penguin. Colin Farrell said, “Big studios make big decisions around such things as the presence of cigarettes in films. I fought valiantly for a cigar.”

    He continued, “At one stage I said, I can have it unlit! Just let me have it unlit. They were like, No. [As if] a bunch of 12-year-olds are going to start smoking Cuban cigars because [the Penguin is smoking cigars in a movie.]”

    The new spin-off series is all set to release this fall when the new gangster will terrorize Gotham City.
