Fans will first encounter Farrell’s version of the infamous troublemaker in the movie directed by Robert Pattinson of Warner Bros. Batman, in theaters on March 4, 2022.
HBO Max’s Penguin-focused spinoff series (title TBD) is said to “dive into The Penguin’s rise to power in the Gotham crime underworld.”
Of course, this is hardly the first time The Penguin has appeared in a live-action Batman production. Burgess Meredith famously portrayed him opposite Adam West on ABC’s Batman (1966–1968), Danny DeVito brought him to the big screen in Batman is back! (1992), and Robin Lord Taylor created a new twist on the character for Fox’s . Gotham (2014–2019).
If Farrell’s Penguin series comes to fruition, it will be the second spin-off of Batman is in development at HBO Max. The streamer has confirmed a prequel series will “go back to Year One” and explore how Gotham became so spoiled.
