The Penguin: A New Crime Drama Set in Gotham

The highly anticipated return of Robert Pattinson as Batman may still be a ways off, but fans of the franchise can rejoice as Max has just released the first teaser trailer for The Penguin. The teaser offers a glimpse of Colin Farrell reprising his role as the titular character from the 2022 film The Batman. Although the clip is short and doesn’t reveal much, the atmosphere it creates is unmistakable – this will be a crime drama set in the dark and gritty world of Gotham.

Matt Reeves, the director of The Batman, will be stepping into the role of executive producer for The Penguin. Showrunner duties will fall to Lauren LeFranc, known for her work on Agents of SHIELD. The ensemble cast is equally impressive, with Cristin Milioti, Rhenzy Feliz, Michael Kelly, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Deirdre O’Connell, Clancy Brown, and Michael Zegen rounding out the lineup. With an eight-episode run, the show is set to start streaming on Max this fall.

The Penguin arrives at a moment of transition for DC’s film and TV offerings under the leadership of James Gunn. The upcoming slate of projects is rumored to include a fresh take on Batman, different from Pattinson’s version, in a film named The Brave and the Bold. James Gunn himself described this as the introduction of the “DCU Batman,” hinting at a broader expansion of the DC Universe on screen.

The Penguin promises to be a thrilling addition to the world of Gotham, offering a fresh take on the criminal underworld of the city. With a talented creative team and a stellar cast, fans can expect an engaging and immersive experience when the show hits screens this fall. Stay tuned for more updates and get ready to dive into the dark and dangerous world of The Penguin.
