Colin Farrell is set to play the notorious supervillain The Penguin in 'The Batman' with Robert Pattinson as The Dark Knight and will also be playing the character in 'The Penguin' spinoff series for HBO Max. The project is in the early stages of development and is being executive produced by Dylan Clark and Matt Reeves. It comes from Reeves’ 6th and Idaho, Dylan Clark Productions, DC Entertainment, and Warner Bros. Television. Lauren LeFranc (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D) is set to showrun the project. Sources are describing the feel of the series as 'Scarface-like' as it shows the rise of the Penguin character. The Penguin, otherwise known as Oswald Chesterfield Cobblepot, is a dapper mob boss and one of Batman’s primary villains. Colin Farrell is set to play him in The Batman, where the disfigured crime lord is not yet the crime kingpin and dislikes being referred to as the Penguin. In the movie, which is due out in March 2022 and is set in Batman’s second year of crime-fighting, Farrell reportedly wears a fat suit and is described as unrecognizable. Source: Deadline
