Per THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, HBO Max has officially ordered THE BATMAN spinoff series THE PENGUIN starring Colin Farrell as Oz “The Penguin” Cobblepott.
“The world that Matt Reeves created for The Batman is one that warrants a deeper gaze through the eyes of Oswald Cobblepot,” Farrell said in a statement. “I couldn’t be more excited about continuing this exploration of Oz as he rises through the darkened ranks to become The Penguin. Will be good to get him back on the streets of Gotham for a little madness and a little mayhem.”
