Interview: Colin Farrell & John Turturro Talk About The Penguin And Falcone In ‘The Batman’
I recently had the honor of interviewing Colin Farrell and John Turturro, the actors behind two of Gotham’s worst: Oz Cobblepot/The Penguin and Carmine Falcone, respectively. the pair spoke about their chemistry and how their characters rule over Gotham City.
Neither Farrell nor Turturro are new to franchises. In fact, Farrell has even played a villain in a superhero movie before as Bullseye in Daredevil (2003). Both Turturro and Farrell talk about how their roles differ from past ones and what drove them to work on a franchise project.

The Batman Official Synopsis
When a killer targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the World’s Greatest Detective on an investigation into the underworld, where he encounters such characters as Selina Kyle (Zoë Kravitz), Oz a.k.a. The Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro) and Edward Nashton/a.k.a. The Riddler (Paul Dano). As the evidence begins to lead closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City.
More than a year of stalking the streets as the Batman (Robert Pattinson), striking fear into the hearts of criminals, has led Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies—Alfred (Andy Serkis), Lt. James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright)—amongst the city’s corrupt network of officials and high-profile figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole embodiment of vengeance amongst his fellow citizens.
