Production on HBO Max’s The Penguin TV series is getting started soon. Interestingly enough, a recent rumor supports that acclaimed actor Robert Pattinson will reprise his role from The Batman in the upcoming series – and it should not surprise any fans! On The Hot Mic With Jeff Sneider and John Rocha podcast, reporter Jeff Sneider confirmed this speculation but was unclear whether Pattinson would show up as Bruce Wayne or the Dark Knight detective – or possibly both. Sounds like we’ll have to wait until these eight amazing episodes air before discovering what exactly Robert will be doing in them!

Lauren LeFranc, best known for her work in Agents of SHIELD is set to take the director’s chair and get filming underway on Penguin. Colin Farrell will be returning to his beloved role in this series that also stars Cristin Milioti, Michael Kelly (House of Cards, Jack Ryan), Shohreh Aghdashloo (The Expanse, House of Sand And Fog), Deirdre O’Connell (Outer Range), and Rhenzy Feliz (Marvel’s Runaways). The show will pick up shortly after the events from The Batman – so don’t miss out!

“[The Penguin] starts about a week after the film The Batman ends. So Gotham is still somewhat underwater,” Farrell previously revealed to Extra. “I read the first script for the first episode, and it opens up with my feet splashing through the water in Falcone’s office. Even just that alone, I read it, I was like, ‘Oh, jeez.’ It’s lovely. It’s so well-written.”

Last month, when DC Studios Co-CEOS James Gunn and Peter Safran unveiled their plans for feature films and movies in the DCU, they offered an update on The Batman universe developed by Matt Reeves. Describing it as a vast crime epic that is also set outside of their main DC continuity, they excitedly hinted at its monumental importance to the franchise’s future.

“Matt is working on Batman 2, which he thinks of it as a Batman crime saga, which also includes the Penguin TV series,” DC Studios Co-CEO James Gunn said about The Batman sequel. “And it is its own thing, and he’s hard at work on that. He came in and pitched us some amazing, really cool stuff the other day. Our plan is for that to continue.” His fellow Co-CEO Peter Safran added, “Batman’s not a stepchild. I mean, it’s all under DC. We are fully invested in the success of the Batman, just like we are everything else.”
