Danny Devito, who played The Penguin in 1992’s Batman Returns, thinks Colin Farrell will do a great job playing the villain in upcoming film, The Batman.
Colin’s role in the movie was rumored last month, with Deadline reporting he was “in negotiations” for the gig. In a new interview with ScreenRant.com, Danny was asked what he thought about the potential casting – and had nothing but good things to say about the Irishman.
“I mean, Colin’s a great actor. We just worked together in Dumbo,” he smiled. “He’s a good friend of mine; known him for many years. I think he’s gonna do (a) great job as Penguin. It’s gonna be really interesting to see his take on it.”
Robert Pattinson is set to lead the cast as the new Caped Crusader, with Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as The Riddler, and Jeffrey Wright as Police Commissioner Jim Gordon.
The Batman is expected to be released in June, 2021.
