The streamer is in early development on a series centered on Batman villain the Penguin. The potential show would be a spinoff of Warner Bros. feature film The Batman, which is due for a March 2022 release. Matt Reeves and Dylan Clark, who are directing and producing the film, will be executive producers on the project.

Colin Farrell plays the Penguin, a crime lord whose given name is Oswald Cobblepot, in The Batman and has been approached about continuing the role in the series. No deal is in place yet.

This is the THIRD Matt Reeves DC series on HBO Max following The Batman:

1. A Gotham PD series set before the movie.
2. A new Batman animated series.
3. The Penguin series.

Yeah…. maybe put your fucking film our first before you start making shitloads of spin offs.
That’s my first instinct, even though I’m dead-excited about the film.

but you have all these people whining about wanting a shared universe, while WB actually seems to be crafting multiple shared universes. Kinda funny.

Yeah, fuck off with this shit WB, still running before you are walking. We still have no idea if the Peacemaker series will be good or not. So dumb.

At least the animated series had variety.

Batman. Joker. Penguin. Joker. Mr. Freeze. Joker. Penguin. Riddler. Penguin. Joker. Bane. Joker.

Batman movies in the year 2100...... Joker. Penguin. Joker...

Why are people upset? Let WB throw shit at the wall and see what sticks. They’ve been hitting the occasional home run for a long time. I don’t mind a few foul balls.

if the show matches that then bring it on

I don't know why I'm angry, maybe because DC has so much potential and WB keep squandering it.
They’ve put out some of my favorite comicbook adaptions since the “boom” began.
TDK trilogy, Man of Steel, Joker, The Suicide Squad. Looking forward to Black Adam, Peacemaker, Joker 2, Reeve’s Batman, Justice League Dark, etc.

Hope he looks like this. Devito was too gross. The guy from Gotham is too sniveling and skinny.

You know what I'm gonna say sol_bad if Gunn is given full control to do what he wants. 🐻

They do have MAD faith in this though, it HAS to be heat.
