We already know that the Penguin is getting his own spin-off show after the success of The Batman. Still, the details about the upcoming HBO Max show have been few and far between. Luckily, Colin Farrell has shared some interesting updates on his new project focusing on Oswald Cobblepot.
Colin Farrell recently spoke to Variety's Awards Circuit where he teased some details about the Penguin series.
"I think it's going to be eight parts for HBO around Oz's rise into power, filling that power vacuum that was created when Falcone was killed," Farrell said. He then confirmed that The Batman director Matt Reeves planned the show's timeline.
"Matt's idea originally was to have the Penguin show begin about a week after the end of the Batman film. And then, if it works, if the trajectory is interesting enough and if the audience go for it and we do our jobs right, have the second film – Penguin feature in the second film and pick up where the HBO show will end," Farrell stated.
It sounds like a promising update but Colin Farrell also pointed out that he is still unsure whether Oswald Cobblepot will appear in The Batman 2. Hopefully, we'll get an update about the sequel soon. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
The second Batman film is currently titled The Batman - Part II but has not yet been given an official production start date. It is currently scheduled for theatrical release on October 3, 2025.
The Penguin series has not yet been given an official production start or release date. The show will consist of six-to-eight hours of content and is set one week following the events of The Batman. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
