Danny DeVito Insists He's 'Better' Penguin Than Colin Farrell
Warner Bros.

The 'Batman Returns' actor says, while the 'American Outlaws' actor is terrific with his interpretation of the Caped Crusader villain, he still thinks he is a better Penguin.

AceShowbiz - Danny DeVito claims he portrayed Penguin "better" than Colin Farrell did. The 77-year-old actor played 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 was cast as the villain in "The Batman", going up against Robert Pattinson in the lead role.

Danny believes he did a better job with the character although he thinks Colin is "terrific." "Oh, Colin? I love Colin. He's a terrific guy. My Penguin was better. Was that the truth?" he replied while undergoing a lie detector test for Vanity Fair magazine when his daughter Lucy showed him a photo of Colin and asked, "What about this Penguin?"

After the person conducting the test confirmed, "You are telling the truth," Danny added, "It certainly was. In my opinion. It's my opinion. Good man, though. Colin's a good guy."

The "Twins" star was also asked who he felt the best Batman was. He pointed to Michael's photo and said, "This is the Batman for me, yeah, Michael."

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

He said of the prospect, "Oh my god, you kidding me?! It's so much fun, are you joking [with] me? I've been around the block man. That was an easy sport, I mean ... it was a joy. Matt's up to his b*******, you know, hovering over the keyboard and just planning the story because he's just so meticulous."

"He's so obsessive about what he does, but he's all over [HBO Max's] The Penguin [series] as well. I mean, he's not gonna direct it but he's all over the structure of the scripts and who's gonna direct them. And so, it's exciting."
