With Colin Farrell in the role of Oswald, she will go into production for the HBO Max platform.
The success of The Batman now confirmed by a very solid US and global box office, Warner Bros. can calmly consider the sequel. Not yet in the cinema, but already there on TV. A spin-off carried by Colin Farrel in the role of the Penguin, has been officially ordered from HBO Max, the studio’s platform.
Provisionally titled The Penguin, it will be a limited series that “will expand on the world that Matt Reeves has created”. We don’t know more about the story at this time.
Matt Reeves explains why Colin Farrell is so unrecognizable in The Batman
Farrell and Reeves will both serve as executive producers. “The world that Matt Reeves created for The Batman deserves a deeper look through the eyes of Oswald Cobblepot. Couldn’t be more excited to continue this exploration of Oz as he rises through the dark ranks to become the Penguin“, comments Colin Farrel. “It will be great to bring him back to the streets of Gotham for a little more madness and a little more mayhem…”
Its director, Matt Reevesapplauds him and considers that the “Colin’s on-screen performance as Penguin in The Batmanis an absolute thrill, as is having the opportunity to deeply explore the inner life of this character…”
No date yet, but we imagine that Warner Bros. going to want to move forward fairly quickly, knowing that another spin-off series, on Arkham Asylumis also in the pipes!
