The Penguin unveils a disturbing new trailer. Here we get a glimpse of Max’s upcoming drama series and how it will continue the story of Matt Reeves’ The Batman.

The Penguin kicks off right after the events of DC’s blockbuster 2022 movie. It also delves deeper into Cobblepot’s rise to power in Gotham’s criminal underworld. It thus cements his status as one of the iconic villains of the Batman universe. Throughout the trailer, Farrell delivers a classic gangster monologue. He also sets the tone for the escalating violence and gunfights unfolding in the depths of Gotham City’s underworld.

The Penguin First Trailer, A Continuity to the Magnificent Batman Universe

Within the trailer, Colin Farrell’s Oz Cobb engages in a profound dialogue, reflecting on a former crime lord he aspires to emulate. The Penguin continues Matt Reeves’ The Batman film, marking Farrell’s debut as the iconic Gotham underworld figure.

“When I was a kid, there was a gangster, real old-school type. Rex Calabrese. He was a big deal. Cobb helped people. He saw you on the street, he’d call out to you,” the Penguin sais in the trailer. “When I was 14 or something, he has a heart attack and dies, still holding a cigar. In my neighborhood, they throw a parade in his honor. A friggin’ parade. It wasn’t fancy, but it was a gesture, a show of love, of what he meant. Can you imagine to be remembered like that?”

The Penguin is set to premiere this autumn, featuring an eight-episode series produced by DC Studios. The show stars Colin Farrell, Cristin Milioti, Rhenzy Feliz, Michael Kelly, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Deirdre O’Connell, Clancy Brown, and Michael Zegen. Executive producers include Matt Reeves, Dylan Clark, Colin Farrell, Lauren LeFranc (also the showrunner and writer), Craig Zobel (directing the first three episodes), and Bill Carraro.

The sequel to The Batman, the film starring Robert Pattinson in 2022, will hit theaters on October 2, 2026, after a one-year delay. Although details on the sequel are scarce, it was initially announced alongside James Gunn and Peter Safran’s DC Universe in early 2023. According to Gunn, The Batman – Part II will be part of Matt Reeves’ “crime saga” trilogy, alongside the Penguin TV series. Despite not being part of the broader DC Universe, Gunn assured that Warner Bros. is fully committed to its success. Gunn and Safran are also developing their own Batman film for the DCU titled “The Brave and the Bold,” slated for release in either 2026 or 2027.
