The first image designs that were planned for Penguin in The Batman were inspired by Scarface, as shown by designer Glyn Dillon
The Batman marked its difference from other productions of the Dark Knight in the cinema by presenting a dark detective story, and with it the main villains, Riddler and Penguin presented some costume design changes in relation to their outfits in the comics.

Costume designer Glyn Dillon, who was part of the production team for The Batman, shared the concept art he’s done on Batman’s enemies, the Penguin and the Riddler.
Although the characterization of Oswald Cobblepott, played by Colin Farrell, was that of an elegant businessman, Dillon’s first ideas sought to present Penguin with a white suit, resembling Tony Montana, Al Pacino’s character in Scarface.
Matt Reeves and his production team chose to give Farrel a look inspired by John Cazale’s character Fredo in The Goodfather II.
The Batman will star Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne / Batman, Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle / Catwoman, Paul Dano as Edward Nashton / The Riddler, Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot / The Penguin, and John Turturro as crime boss Carmine Falcone.
Jeffrey Wright will also star as Police Commissioner James Gordon, while Andy Serkis will play Alfred Pennyworth.
The Batman is now available through digital video stores and the HBO Max digital platform.
