The Batman: In a statement, HBO confirmed that Colin Farrell will revive The Batman’s Penguin character in a prequel spin-off series on HBO Max. According to news revealed by Deadline, Farrell has accepted an extension of his contractual relationship with Warner Bros. to participate in the new Batman plot not only as a protagonist, but as an executive producer.
Rumors also point out that the show’s proposal had already been launched since the first announcements for the feature film by Matt Reeves, when the cast of Robert Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, Andy Serkis and others had been cast. .
There are no further details confirmed on the project or release forecast, but it seems that the story of the series of The Batman will be entirely set in Gotham and should tell the entire journey of Oswald Chesterfield Cobblepot to become the city’s crime king .
“This is an incredible opportunity, not just to expand the worldview I’m creating in the film, but to explore it in the kind of depth and detail that only a long format can provide — and start working with the incredibly talented Terence Winter , who has written so insightfully and powerfully about the worlds of crime and corruption, is an absolute dream,” said Reeves.
The production derived from The Batman will be scripted by Lauren LeFranc, who previously appeared in some episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The series will be exclusive to HBO Max.
