Danny DeVito thinks he’s ‘better’ Penguin than Colin Farrell | Partner Content: Arts, Films and TV

Danny DeVito thinks he was a “better” Penguin than Colin Farrell.

The 77-year-old actor portrayed the iconic villain – aka mobster Oswald ‘Oz’ Cobblepot – in 1992’s ‘Batman Returns’ opposite Michael Keaton as the Caped Crusader, while the ‘In Bruges’ star played the role in ‘The Batman’, opposite Robert Pattinson in the lead role.

While Danny thinks Colin is “great”, he thinks he did a better job with the character.

During a polygraph test for Vanity Fair magazine, Danny’s daughter, Lucy, showed him a picture of Colin and asked, “And that penguin?”

He replied, “Oh, Colin? I love Colin. He’s a great guy. My Penguin was better.

“Was it the truth?

After the person taking the test confirmed, “You’re telling the truth,” Danny added, “It certainly was. In my opinion. That’s my opinion. A good man, though. Colin is a good guy. .”

The “Twins” star was also asked who he thinks is the best Batman.

He pointed to Michael’s photo and said, “That’s the Batman to me, yeah, Michael.”

Colin is set to reprise the role in a standalone HBO Max series, but also admitted he’d jump at the chance to return for another film starring Robert and director Matt Reeves.

He said of the prospect: “Oh my god, are you kidding me?! It’s so much fun, are you kidding [with] me? I walked around the block. It was an easy sport, I mean…it was a joy.

“Matt lives up to his b*******, you know, hovering over the keyboard and just planning the story because he’s so meticulous.

“He’s so obsessed with what he does, but he’s everywhere [HBO Max’s] The Penguin [series] as well. I mean, he’s not going to direct it but he’s all over the structure of the scripts and who’s going to direct them. And so, that’s exciting.”
