According to him, Warner Bros., the studio that oversees the feature film, did not allow the character to smoke cigarettes in the scenes in which he appeared – not even one that was out. According to the executives, the Penguin of the new narrative has not yet incorporated all the energy of the classic villain and, for that reason, does not need to smoke.
“I fought valiantly for a cigarette, and I even said, at one point, ‘Can I have one out?’ And they said no,” Farrell commented. “The Oz we know hasn’t yet incorporated all the Penguin energy we know from the original comics and previous films, so we’ll see what happens next. I’d love to explore that, because he’s not a sub-boss, he’s not a boss, he’s just a soldier at this point. But he has big ambitions to do big things.”
Since HBO Max has already announced a spin-off series of the character, it is likely that the actor will be able to explore other sides of the character in the production: “HBO will give me the green light for this”, he adds.
Remembering that ‘Batman’ premieres on March 3 and will last for 176 minutes (2 hours and 56 minutes), making it the longest movie of the character.
Until then, the longest was ‘Batman: The Dark Knight Rises’, with 2 hours and 45 minutes, followed by ‘Batman: The Dark Knight’ and ‘Batman vs. Superman’, both at 2 hours and 32 minutes.

In an interview, Reeves commented that the film will be different from the previous films and will not present itself as a traditional origin story, as we have seen in the past. As he explained, the film will make references to its origins, showing a much more emotional and complex perspective.
“I felt like we saw a lot of the character’s origin stories. It feels like things go further and further in this fantasy, and I thought ‘well, one place we haven’t been is grounding it the way the Year One comics do, getting right into a young Batman, not being an origin tale. , but referring to his origins and shaking him to the core. You can make your story very practical, but I also thought it could be the most emotional Batman movie ever made.”
In addition to Robert Pattinson in the lead role, the cast includes Andy Serkis (Alfred), Farrell, Zoë Kravitz (Catwoman), Jeffrey Wright (Commissioner Gordon), John Turturro (Carmine Falcone), Peter Skarsgaard, Jayme Lawson, Gil Perez -Abraham, and brothers Max and Charlie Carver.
