Colin Farrell to star in a spin-off to The Batman

According to Variety, Colin Farrell is set to reprise his role as The Penguin, in a spin-off series to The Batman.

Farrell will play the character for the first time in Robert Pattinson’s “The Batman,” which will be released in March 2022.
After then, the series is said to focus on The Penguin’s ascent to prominence in the Gotham criminal underground.
The series was first announced in September, though Farrell was not involved at the time. It’s thought the series will be an adaptation of the comic Penguin Triumphant, from 1992.

Lauren LeFranc has been tapped to pen the series.
Matt Reeves, the director of “The Batman,” and Dylan Clark, the film’s producer, will executive produce the Penguin series under their 6th & Idaho and Dylan Clark Productions labels, respectively.

Warner Bros. Television would be in charge of the production. It will air on HBO Max, in the US.

The Penguin, a.k.a. Oswald Cobblepot, is a well-known member of the Batman Rogues Gallery, distinguished by his top hat, monocle, and a vast range of lethal umbrellas.
Burgess Meredith, Danny DeVito, and Robin Lord Taylor have all previously played the character in live-action films and TV series.

Penguin will be HBO Max’s second spin-off series from “The Batman.” Joe Barton is attached as the showrunner for a drama based within the Gotham Police Department, which has already been ordered by the streaming service. It will adapt the Gotham Central line of comics.


WarnerMedia is attempting to create a new, integrated Batman universe that spans all of the company’s platforms.

Other live-action DC shows in development at HBO Max include John Cena’s “Suicide Squad” spin-off “Peacemaker,” a “Green Lantern” series from Greg Berlanti, and a “Justice League Dark” series from J.J. Abrams, among others. “The Batman” and its two spin-offs have been confirmed as taking place on Earth 2.
