Another batch of behind-the-scenes photos from the set of HBO Max’s highly-anticipated The Batman spin-off The Penguin have surfaced online (via Just Jared), featuring our first look at Cristin Milioti’s portrayal of Carmine Falcone’s daughter, Sofia Falcone. In new The Penguin set photos, Milioti’s Sofia can be seen wearing an all-white attire. In addition, Colin Farrell has also once again been spotted in his full Penguin look as he shows off the titular DC villain’s newest car.
Set in the world of the 2022’s The Batman, the HBO Max series will focus on Oswald Cobblepot’s past and show his rise to power in Gotham’s seedy underbelly rather than portray him as the established kingpin. The character has a rich history of live-action appearances, as Danny DeVito famously played Penguin in Batman Returns while Robin Lord Taylor portrayed him in Gotham.
Joining Farrell are Encanto star Rhenzy Feliz, Cristin Milioti (Palm Springs), Michael Kelly (House of Cards), Shohreh Aghdashloo (The Expanse), Deirdre O’Connell (Outer Range), and Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption). It is also being rumored that Robert Pattinson might make an appearance as Bruce Wayne/ Batman.
The limited drama will be based on the DC characters created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger. It is being written by Lauren LeFranc, who is also set as the showrunner. The first two episodes will be directed by Craig Zobel.
The upcoming The Penguin series will be executive produced by The Batman‘s Dylan Clark and Matt Reeves, Farrell, LeFranc, Daniel Pipski, Adam Kassanand, and Rafi Crohn. It is a joint project between 6th and Idaho, DC Entertainment, Dylan Clark Productions, and Warner Bros. Television.
