Danny DeVito’s take on the Penguin from 1992’s Batman Returns is nothing short of iconic. This fall, DeVito is returning to the role, but he may no longer want any make-up for it, because the actor is writing a Penguin-targeted fable for the upcoming Gotham City Villains Anniversary Giant #1 one-shot anthology, GameRant reports.
Oh lawful, i can talk about this now!
So i’ve been working with @DannyDeVito & @Danmora_c to craft a very special Penguin fable on sale this November.
This has been one among the coolest experiences of my life and I am dapper mad for all individuals to read 🐧 https://t.co/5bvSXcCTEh

DC is pairing DeVito with artist Dan Mora for the fable according to Batman crew editor Paul Kaminski. The laughable will also feature tales from writer/artist Wes Craig, writers G. Willow Wilson, Phillip Kennedy Johnson, Joshua Williamson, Stephanie Phillips, Dan Watters, and Mairghread Scott; art for these tales comes from Emma Rios, Riccardo Federici, Max Raynor, Max Fiumara, Skylar Patridge, Ariela Kristantina, Khary Randolph, Jill Thompson, Christian Ward, Gabriel Walta, and extra.
Batman Returns is remembered for its villains above all else, and especially for DeVito’s creepy take on the Penguin. While many various portrayals of the character make him extra of an outcast-grew to change into-criminal than anything else, the Batman Returns model grew to change into him into a sewer-area monster who planned to steal all of Gotham’s first-born sons and execute them when his plan to discredit Gotham’s mayor and Batman did no longer pan out.
This announcement comes on the heels of the release of the unusual Batman ’89 laughable, which continues the fable of Tim Burton’s model of the Batman character, as portrayed by Michael Keaton.
The Gotham City Villains Anniversary Giant #1 releases in November. Meanwhile, extra and extra hints counsel that Michael Keaton, while no longer officially confirmed in so many words, will reprise his role within the upcoming Flash movie starring Ezra Miller and directed by Andy Muschietti.
