Robert Pattinson’s Batman Is In HBO Max Penguin Series


It’s been revealed that Robert Pattinson’s Batman will be returning in the upcoming HBO Max Penguin series starring Colin Farrell! This comes after months of speculation suggesting that Pattinson’s Batman could be turning up in the show.

This series is already gearing up to be one of the most fascinating shows on HBO Max. The fact that Farrell is returning as the Penguin in it is incredible.

He was brilliant in Matt Reeves’ 2022 The Batman movie. He’s perfect casting as the iconic DC Comics villain and it seems as though this series will see him gradually turn into the Penguin we all know and love from the comics.

In last year’s movie, he was more of a low-level criminal in Gotham’s underworld, but after the events of the movie, it seems like he’s going to be making the step up to the big time!

Sneider broke the news during the latest episode of his Hot Mic Podcast with John Rocha, revealing that the series will feature a reunion between Pattinson and Colin Farrell, who plays the titular Batman villain.
