Colin Farrell gives fans an update on his next TV project: ‘just so tasty and so unusual’

Colin Farrell will be returning to our TV screens once again, as he reprises his role as Oswald Cobblepot a.k.a. The Penguin in a spin-off series from The Batman.

The project was announced earlier this year, after the film premiered, and now we finally have more details.

Colin shared with Extra TV, exactly what we can expect from the series. Explaining how it will pick-up right where The Batman finished.

Saying:  “[The Penguin] starts about a week after the film The Batman ends, so Gotham is still somewhat underwater. I read the first script for the first episode, and it opens up with my feet splashing through the water in Falcone’s office. Even just that alone, I read it, I was like, ‘Oh, jeez.'”

He also told Collider: “I read the first episode, which is just so tasty and so unusual as the character was on the page and what Matt Reeves kind of envisioned when he was thinking of this iteration of the bang up of Oz.”

“So yeah, it’ll be, I think six or eight hours. I’m supposed to read episode two and three within the next week.”

The new series was confirmed by American streaming service HBO Max and the Dubliner is thrilled to be continuing The Penguin’s story.

Saying in a statement; “The world that Matt Reeves created for The Batman is one that warrants a deeper gaze through the eyes of Oswald Cobblepot. I couldn’t be more excited about continuing this exploration of Oz as he rises through the darkened ranks to become The Penguin.”

While they haven’t given much away about the show just yet, Colin did say his character will be “back on the streets of Gotham for a little madness and a little mayhem.”
