Let the new Batman villain rumors start to fly again!

Giamatti added that he hadn’t heard about the rumors casting him as the Batman villain (last played by Danny DeVito), but said he’d be honored to don the rotund outfit.

“You know, I’m still stuck back in the ‘Batman’ TV show days,” said Giamatti. “That’s what I grew up watching, so I never followed the more current stuff. But The Penguin would be great to do.”
