Colin Farrell's iteration of the Penguin is set to take a new shape as Matt Reeves and those at DC Studios make further strides. According to Collider, the much-anticipated TV series on the Penguin character holds a lot of potential to lead into the Batman sequel, with the makers now keener than ever to create a larger BatVerse. Speaking to the same publication about the upcoming HBO MAX mini-series, Reeves divulged that the entire team is super kicked at the moment to get started on the show with Colin Farrell reprising his role as the iconic DC villain.

Although unconfirmed, the limited series is likely to see the Penguin take over Gotham City, following the demise of the mob boss Carmine Falcone (played by John Turturro). Falcone, as seen in Reeves' 2022 film The Batman, is killed by The Riddler which leaves the Penguin with more authority.

Previously, Colin Farrell expressed a lot of excitement to explore the character further, describing the first episode as tasty and unusual. He would add that the series would be about six to eight hours long, allowing the makers to not only expand the new The Batman franchise but also connect each element to a larger story at heart. Matt Reeves shares that the Penguin series will not remain an isolated entity but will definitely lead into The Batman 2, lending the viewers more insights into the vast Gotham universe.

As far as The Batman sequel is concerned, Matt Reeves will return to direct the film and also co-write the film with Mattson Tomlin. Robert Pattinson will be back as the caped crusader/Bruce Wayne with Barry Keoghan poised to potentially play a more prominent role as The Joker: the concluding moments of the 2022 film show The Riddler and The Joker forming a friendship, so to speak, which teases the possibility of a dual-nemesis attack.
