Colin Farrell, who plays the DC villain in the 2022 feature film, has been approached to reprise his role in a potential show on the streamer.
The streamer is in early development on a series centered on Batman villain the Penguin. The potential show would be a spinoff of Warner Bros. feature film The Batman, which is due for a March 2022 release. Matt Reeves and Dylan Clark, who are directing and producing the film, will be executive producers on the project.
Colin Farrell plays the Penguin, a crime lord whose given name is Oswald Cobblepot, in The Batman and has been approached about continuing the role in the series. No deal is in place yet.
This is the THIRD Matt Reeves DC series on HBO Max following The Batman:
1. A Gotham PD series set before the movie.
2. A new Batman animated series.
3. The Penguin series.
