The Batman spinoff, The Penguin starring Colin Farrell, is now filming, which is coming to the HBO Max streaming service.
Production designer Kalina Ivanov shared an update on Instagram following the first day of filming.
“The first day of shooting THE PENGUIN is in the can. Only the compass can tell us in what Gotham direction we’re going. My lips are sealed…” Ivanov teased.
Who will be the crime lord in Gotham City?
Fact is that Colin Farrel doesn’t know if he is in The Batman 2 as of yet, but has started filming and Clancy Brown has joined the cast. Synopsis below:
“It’s going to be an eight-part thing around Oz’s rise to power, filling that power vacuum created when Falcone was killed,” the actor said in Variety’s Award Circuit podcast. “Matt’s idea originally was to have the Penguin show begin about a week after the end of the Batman film. And then if it works, if the trajectory is entertaining enough and the audience goes for it, and we do our jobs right… have Penguin feature in the second film and pick up where the HBO show will end. So I don’t know how much he’ll be in it.”
