The Batman fans are buzzing over press junket, DC spinoff series & Colin Farrell reprising Penguin

The hype surrounding The Batman film has DC fans causing waves on social media lately since news broke of a DC spinoff series in development for HBO Max. Star Colin Farrell has reportedly reprised his Penguin role for the aforementioned DC TV show and will center over his rise to power in Gotham City.

Produced by Warner Bros. Television, The Penguin spinoff series script will apparently be penned by Lauren LeFranc known for serving as a producer for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (source: Variety). Director Matt Reeves is also attached to serve as an executive producer under 6th & Idaho and Dylan Clark Productions banners.

The Batman starring Robert Pattinson is months away from its 2022 release but Warner Bros. is yet to make its first marketing push for the DC film. But recent social media rumblings have revealed journalists teasing their upcoming interviews with The Batman cast such as Andy Serkis (plays as Alfred Pennyworth).

It seems like press junket for The Batman will soon be underway and if true, it will be the first time for a few of The Batman cast to address their respective roles. Actor Paul Dano playing Engima has been mum ever since signing on for the DC film. Nonetheless, it’s got the fandom excited for what’s in store. Readers can check out the reactions below.

It’s been long rumored that Reeves’ new iteration of The Batman will be further expanded as a new Universe. It was also alleged Robert Pattinson’s The Dark Knight would set off a new trilogy centering over “the formative stages” of the vigilante.  The new report indicates Warner Bros. is still on track to establish its planned noir franchise.

If the Penguin show goes into development, it will mark as the second spinoff based on Reeves’ The Batman for HBO Max. A series centering over the Gotham Police Department is in the works at the streaming house with Joe Barton on board to be the showrunner. WarnerMedia plans to establish an interconnected Batman universe for all its platforms.

Warner Bros. is reportedly using HBO Max as a testing ground for its lesser-known DC properties. One spinoff based on James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad character Peacemaker featuring John Cena will arrive on January 13, 2022, on the streaming platform. Meanwhile, The Batman will land in theatres on March 4, 2022.
