Colin Farrell wants to star in The Batman 2, along with his Penguin show on HBO Max

In a new interview, Colin Farrell says he wants his Penguin from 2022’s The Batman to not only appear in the upcoming HBO Max series, but also return in the sequel announced earlier this year. So far, only writer-director Matt Reeves and star Robert Pattinson have been confirmed to return.

“Oh my God, are you kidding me?” Farrell told Entertainment Tonight after being asked by the publication if she would play Penguin again on the big screen. “It’s so funny, are you kidding [with] me? I’ve been around the block, man. That was an easy sport, I mean… it was a joy.”

Farrell added of the sequel, “Matt is up to his neck, you know, hovering over the keyboard and just planning the story because he’s so meticulous. He’s so obsessive about what he does, but he’s into everything.” [HBO Max’s] Penguin [series] also.”

The Batman sequel will be the second film in a planned trilogy, and contenders whether it be Reeves or Pattinson have expressed interest in casting Court of Owls, Calendar Man, Mr. Freeze or Hush as villains in the next film. Nicolas Cage has been pitching himself for consideration to play Egghead, aka the villain Vincent Price played on the ’60s Batman show. “I think I can make him absolutely terrifying,” Cage said.

The Penguin Show will, unsurprisingly, follow Farrell’s Oswald Cobblepot as he makes his way to presumably fill the newly created power void at the top of Gotham City’s underworld. Reeves will serve as executive producer alongside Farrell himself. Lauren LeFranc (Agents of SHIELD, Chuck) will serve as showrunner. Farrell told Entertainment Tonight that he “expects” the series to begin filming in 2023.
