Danny DeVito gave first glimpse at his Penguin story for DC Comics

It was previously announced that Danny DeVito will work on a comic book story about his character Pinguin, as part of the 80th anniversary of the supervillain in Dan More's art.

On Twitter, DeVito shared a sneak peek of the comic Gotham City Villains Anniversary Giant #1, together with its variants of the cover look.

"Gotham City may be protected by the Dark Knight, but this major metropolitan destination is also plagued by some of the deadliest, most nefarious villains in the DC Universe!" reads the official synopsis.

Danny DeVito appeared in 1992 as Oswald Cobblepot, aka Penguin, in Tim Burton's sequel "Batman Returns." That role is probably still the favorite of many fans because of the unforgettable portrayal of the famous supervillain, which was reincarnated many times after that - but the attempts to be at least nearly as good as DeVito were in vain.

The latest Penguin is now played by Colin Farrell alongside Robert Pattinson in "The Batman". Last year, Danny Devito talked about casting and said Farrell was a good choice.
