The Batman 2: Colin Farrell wants to return as Penguin for the sequel

There was plenty to love in Matt Reeves’ Batman, but Colin Farrell’s take on the penguin was a definite highlight for me. Although we didn’t see quite as much of Penguin as I would have liked, Colin Farrell will reprise the role for an upcoming HBO Max series. Colin Farrell told though Entertainment tonight to which he hopes he will return Batman also the sequel.

Oh my god, are you kidding me?! This is so funny, are you kidding me [with] me? I’ve been around the block man. It was an easy sport, I mean… it was a joy.

Batman the sequel was official announced at CinemaCon earlier this year. “Thank you all for your tremendous support of The Batman,Matt Reeves said. “We could not have come this far without the faith and enthusiasm of all your teams around the world. I’m excited to jump back into this world for the next chapter.” Colin Farrell told ET that Reeves is currently hard at work writing Batman sequel as well as making sure the Penguin series gets off on the right foot. “Matt is able to hover over the keyboard and just plot the story because he’s just so meticulous,Farrell said. “He’s so obsessed with what he’s doing, but he’s over it [HBO Max’s] Penguin [series] as well. I mean, he’s not going to direct it, but he’s all over the structure of the scripts and who’s going to direct them. And then it’s exciting.The actor added that he hopes to start filming the Penguin series in 2023.

The Penguin series will pick up Oswald’s story, where Batman slack, and Colin Farrell seems pretty excited to step back into the villain’s shoes again. “The world that Matt Reeves created for Batman is one that warrants a deeper look through the eyes of Oswald Cobblepot,” Farrell said when the series was officially announced. “I couldn’t be more excited to continue this exploration of Oz as he rises through the darkened ranks to become the Penguin. It will be good to have him back on the streets of Gotham for some madness and some mayhem.
