Robert Pattinson will appear in the series The Penguin according to reports

Production on HBO Max’s The Penguin TV series is slated to begin soon and a new rumor may reveal an interesting character appearance.

Speaking on The Hot Mic With Jeff Sneider and John Rocha podcast, he reports that Jeff Sneider corroborated earlier rumors that Robert Pattinson would reprise his role as The Batman in the upcoming series. Although he wasn’t sure if Pattinson would appear as Bruce Wayne or the detective, or both, it seems likely that he will appear in at least one episode of the show, which will run for eight episodes.

Agents of SHIELD’s Lauren LeFranc is set to show off the Penguin series and filming will begin very soon. Colin Farrell will reprise his role in the series, whose cast also includes Cristin Milioti, Michael Kelly (House of Cards, Jack Ryan), Shohreh Aghdashloo (The Expanse, House of Sand And Fog), Deirdre O’Connell (Outer Range), and Rhenzy Feliz (Marvel’s Runaways). The show will also pick up very soon after the events of The Batman.

“The Penguin picks up about a week after The Batman movie ends. So Gotham is still a little bit underwater.”Farrell previously revealed to Extra. “I read the first script for the first episode, and it starts with my feet splashing in the water in Falcone’s office. Even just that, I read it, and I was like, ‘Oh, gosh.’ It’s lovely. It’s very well written.”

As part of their big reveal of the DCU’s plans for feature films and movies last month, DC Studios co-CEOs James Gunn and Peter Safran gave an update on Matt Reeves’ plans for The Batman universe.
