The Penguin Spinoff HBO Max Series To Start Filming In June


The Penguin is getting his own spinoff show starring Collin Farrell and this HBO Max show is reportedly going to star filming in June.

This news comes from a new report from a Film & Television Industry Alliance’s website,

It does seem as though this website is legitimate and they are claiming that the series is due to start filming on June 15th later this year.

The series is going to be lead by Collin Farrell who played The Penguin in the recent Matt Reeves Batman movie.

It’ll follow Farrell’s Oswald Cobblepot after the event of The Batman.

According to the listing, The Batman director Matt Reeves will be producing the show, with Farrell set to reprise his role as Gotham’s Iceberg Lounge proprietor, Oz.

Lauren LeFranc will be writing the series.

Collin Farrell’s Penguin was so good in the Matt Reeves movie and I was delighted to hear that he was getting his own spinoff series.

I loved the fact it was Farrell’s Penguin who pointed out the grammatical flaw in one of The Riddler’s riddles to Robert Pattinson’s Batman.

This all resulted in a very climactic scene in The Batman where Pattinson’s Dark Knight engaged in a high-speed freeway chase with Penguin.

Penguin almost managed to beat the Batman in that scene, but the Dark Knight ended up getting the upper hand and the Penguin ended up upside down in his car.

The Batman movie is streaming on HBO Max right now.
