New "Dumbo" character posters make it clear that Michael Keaton is every inch the villain in the live-action Tim Burton remake of the Disney classic.
We're getting a kind of Max Shreck/Lucius Malfoy vibe from Keaton's platinum hair. And the ascot... well, we can't help but think they're suspicious since Hugh Grant's delightfully vain actor villain in "Paddington 2" rarely went anywhere without one.
Now as for good guy Colin Farrell's neckwear, that's more of a cowboy kerchief, right?
Here's the official character breakdown:
• Holt Farrier (Farrell), a former circus star charged with caring for an elephant who can fly
• Max Medici (Danny DeVito), the owner of a struggling circus who hopes Dumbo will bring in the crowds
• V.A. Vandevere (Keaton), an entrepreneur who sets his sights on Medici’s circus and its flying elephant
• Colette Marchant (Eva Green), an accomplished aerialist who’s cast to fly alongside Dumbo in a state-of-the-art amusement park called Dreamland.
"Dumbo" opens March 29.
