According to a producer on the batter, Colin Farrell’s upcoming Penguin series would have a story like: Scarface

With the highly anticipated release of the batter Less than a week away, fans are already excited to see how Matt Reeves and his team plan to expand their knowledge of Gotham City through new series and upcoming sequels. There are currently two spin-off shows in the works for HBO Max: Gotham PDand a series on Colin Farrell’s Penguin.

while promoting the batter, producer Dylan Clark discussed further expanding the story through HBO Max shows, including the upcoming Penguin series with Colin Farrell. In particular, he compared the story to that of Scarfaceand told SFX Magazine the following:

“We’re doing one with Colin [Farrell, as Oswald Cobblepot], watching Oz rise to power, almost like a ‘Scarface’ story. It’s exciting to do something like stand-alone, but it appeals to the character and our movie, so you go back to the movie [and say]’Oh, I see that backstory there, that line refers to this.’”

Although you might think of two different spin-off series set in Matt Reeves’ the batter universe would be a bit redundant, at the very least both series would be of different genres. Gotham PD will probably be more of a police procedural drama, while Colin Farrell’s Penguin show will be more like a drama set in the criminal underworld, akin to Scarface. Either way, the possibilities are exciting for this new era for Gotham City, and we’ll dive deeper into The Penguin’s character than ever before, and if told with the same dramatic tension of Scarface is quite intriguing.
