Regardless of all of the upheaval and modifications behind the scenes of Warner Bros. Discovery, it seems (key phrase seems) that HBO Max continues to be transferring forward with a tv present starring the model of the DC villain the Penguin, as performed by Colin Farrell within the latest film The Batman. Farrell himself just lately mentioned he had learn the script for the premiere episode and described the entire present as very “uncommon.” (Nicely, yeah. Not too many tv reveals about comic-book super-villains!)
As for after we can count on this present, HBO Max head of originals Sarah Aubrey advised Selection that the collection takes place “instantly after the tip of The Batman” and earlier than the occasions of the deliberate big-screen The Batman sequel. She added:
The present will come out in between the 2 motion pictures. Now past that, it’s enjoyable for the viewers to know that it will likely be a bridge between the 2, however the precise launch date, I’m not at liberty to say.
In The Batman, Oswald Cobblepot runs the Iceberg Lounge, a Gotham Metropolis nightclub affiliated with the Falcone crime household. Somewhat than squawking like a chook and zapping Batman with gimmicked umbrellas, he’s extra of a scheming underworld determine. Not that there’s something fallacious with being a squawking, umbrella-waving super-villain if that’s who you might be. This was only a completely different, darker tackle the character, as just about all the things in The Batman was.
HBO Max has but to announce and official launch date for his or her Penguin collection or The Batman 2.
