Actor Danny DeVito has said he wants to portray Penguin, the iconic Batman villain, once again. ForbesSpeaking to , DeVito said that playing Oswald Cobblebot in 1992’s Batman Returns was “one of the highlights of his career” and that he wanted to collaborate with Batman Returns director Tim Burton to reprise the role.
DeVito said, “There’s no way Penguin will ever come back, but it all depends on whether Tim wants to do that. I’d say Penguin has a chance to come back because we’re not dead yet (laughs). We can continue what we’ve done in the past because Batman “It Returns was a really great movie. I’m so grateful for giving me this opportunity, but would I like to visit the series one more time? Why not! It was a really great moment for me.”
Bruce Wayne, played by Robert Pattinson, will encounter a different Penguin in the Batman movie to be released next spring. Colin Farrell will play the character of Penguin in the new movie. About Farrel’s portrayal of Penguin, DeVito said, “I love Colin Farrell. He is one of my favorite actors. I can’t wait!” he said.
