Colin Farrell reveals Danny DeVito's reaction to his Penguin

Colin Farrell has revealed he exchanged text messages with Danny DeVito after he landed the role of Penguin in The Batman. The 45-year-old actor is unrecognisable under make-up as underworld figure Oswald Cobblepot in Matt Reeves' film, in which Robert Pattinson plays the titular role. Farrell's take on the character pays homage to mob movies with both his appearance and his accent, which differs from other screen portrayals of the Penguin. The Batman is in IMAX and cinemas from 4 March, with IMAX previews on 3 March.
