Veteran actor Danny DeVito believes Colin Farrell will do a great job as The Penguin in Matt Reeves' The Batman. DeVito, who played the DC villain against Michael Keaton as Batman in Tim Burton's 1992 film Batman Returns, said it would be "interesting" to see Farrell's take on the character.
"Colin's a great actor... He's a good friend of mine. I've known him for many years and I think he's going to do a great job as The Penguin. It's going to be really interesting to see his take on it," DeVito told ScreenRant.
The Batman will see Robert Pattinson in the lead role as Batman and Andy Serkis as Batman's loyal butler Alfred Pennyworth. Jeffrey Wright will play Commissioner Gordon, Zoe Kravitz will play Catwoman and Paul Dano will play The Riddler.
It had rumored to be a grounded take on the Dark Knight and will feature many of Batman's villains. The Batman will hit the theatres on June 25, 2021.
