Danny DeVito revealed his reaction to Colin Farrell being cast as The Penguin while speaking to ComicBook, “Colin is a great actor. I’m excited to see what he’ll do in the part. It’s a really great, many-layered character so I’m very, very excited to see that because I was a big fan of the comic books and I loved working with Tim. Tim Burton and I had a hell of a shorthand with that one and I love doing Oswald so I’m very much looking forward to my friend Colin and see what he has to do.”
