“Batman”: Danny DeVito gives Colin Farrell his seal of approval as a penguin

During an interview with Forbes, Danny DeVito commented on Penguin’s upcoming appearance in the film, now played by Colin Farrell in director Matt Reeves’ “Batman”.

DeVito played the villain in “Batman: The Return” (1992), and many fans believe that no other actor can outdo the star’s performance and look in the Tim Burton feature film.

Still, DeVito said he’s eager to see how Farrell performs on paper and even gave him his seal of approval.

“I love Colin Farrell. He’s one of my favorite actors. And even! I can’t wait to see you as the new Penguin! I’ve watched some of his movies and he has my approval, Penguin is in good hands.

In the same interview, DeVito said he would love to return to play him in new Batman movies … even though his version of the villain has passed away.

“I feel that the return of my version of Penguin is not out of the question. He will come back someday, but it depends on the [diretor] Tim [Burton], it depends on whether or not he wants to do it. I would say that could be a card up our sleeve because we’re not dead yet (laughs). We could do a continuation of what we had in the past because it was a really brilliant movie. They gave me this opportunity and I am very grateful and would love to take over this role. Why not? It was a really good time for me. “

He continued:

“There is a little Oswald Cobblepot in me. And there is also Danny. I’m not a closed book, I’m pretty much an open book when it comes to remaking this iconic character.

Now that “The Flash” will bring the DC Comics multiverse to the big screen, it would be a great possibility to save the penguin from DeVito.

Meanwhile, it’s worth remembering that ‘Batman’ premieres on March 4, 2022.

Check out the full synopsis and follow CinePOP on YouTube:

“Two years of patrolling the streets like Batman (Robert Pattinson), instilling fear in the hearts of criminals, took Bruce Wayne to the shadow of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies – Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis) and Lieutenant James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) – among the city’s corrupt network of officers and key figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole embodiment of vengeance among his dear citizens. “

When an assassin attacks Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the world’s greatest sleuth on an investigation into the criminal world, where he meets characters like Selina Kyle / Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot / Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro) and Edward Nashton / Riddler (Paul Dano). As the evidence begins to get personal and the scale of the author’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and do justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham.

In an interview, Reeves commented that the feature film will be different from previous films and won’t come across as a traditional origin story like we’ve seen in the past. As he explained, the film will reference its origins, showing a much more emotional and complex perspective.

“I felt like we had seen a lot of origin stories for the character. It seems like things are going deeper and deeper into that fantasy, and I was like, ‘Well, a place where we didn’t go found it the way the first year comics do, stepping right into a young Batman, not being an origin tale, but by referring to its origins and shaking it up to the point. heart. You can make your story really practical, but I also thought this might be the most touching Batman movie ever made. ”

In addition to Pattinson in the lead role, the cast includes Andy Serkis (Alfred), Zoe Kravitz (Catwoman), Jeffrey Wright (Commissioner Gordon), John Turturro (Carmine Falcone), Peter Skarsgaard, Jayme Lawson, Gil Perez-Abraham and brothers Max and Charlie Carver.
