Warner Brothers will have the Penguin as one of  the villains in the new Batman movie. They might even have up to 4 villains (Catwoman, Riddler, Falcone and Penguin) if you count Catwoman as a villian. Four will be tough. There won’t be enough screen time for each one of them. Colin Farrell will play the Penguin (Oswald Cobblepot)  in the new Batman movie.
Danny DeVito played the Penguin in the Batman Returns (1992 movie) directed by Tim Burton with Michael Keaton as Batman and Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman. Batman Returns made $266.8 million worldwide with $80 million budget. It took  4 and half hours to put makeup on DeVito for the part of the Penguin.
