Max has released a new promo looking ahead to its 2024 and 2025 offerings, and along with never-before-seen footage from The Penguin, we have news on The Last of Us and a first look at Welcome to Derry...

Warner Bros. Discovery's Max streaming service isn't necessarily the most exciting of all those available and, in terms of subscribers alone, it will be a very long time before it even comes close to Netflix and Disney+.

However, as 2023 winds down, the platform is looking to get people excited about what's to come next year and beyond. For starters, we have brand new footage from The Penguin, Matt Reeves' first small screen The Batman spin-off. Oz's plan to fill the void left by Carmine Falcone's death appears to be well underway, though if what we see here is any indication, he's going to have to get his hands dirty!

In terms of plot details, very little is known about the series. However, we expect it to follow Oswald Cobblepot's rise to power in Gotham, establishing him as the city's new crimelord ahead of The Batman II; whether he'll be that sequel's big bad remains to be seen, especially with The Joker no doubt eager to escape Arkham.

Lauren LeFranc serves as The Penguin's writer, executive producer, and showrunner, while The Batman director Matt Reeves executive produces as well. 

Colin Farrell, meanwhile, reprises his role as "Oz" and will also be joined in the series by Cristin Milioti as Sofia Falcone, Clancy Brown as Salvatore Maroni, Theo Rossi, Michael Zegen, James Madio, Scott Cohen, Rhenzy Feliz, Michael Kelly, Shohreh Aghdashloo, and Deirdre O’Connell.

The teaser also confirms that The Last of Us season 2 will return in 2025, while we have a "special first look" at footage from Welcome To Derry, the TV series which is going to serve as a prequel to Stephen King's IT (and, more specifically, Andy Muschietti's movies). That too launches in 2025.

Interestingly, there's no mention of Waller, Creature Commandos, or Peacemaker season 2, three DC Studios TV shows we'd expected to see launch on Max over the next couple of years. With any luck, we'll have updates on those soon.

For now, check out this promo in the players below.

Definitely one of my favorite takes on Penguin. Farrell's great in the role.
HammerLegFoot - 12/6/2023, 2:42 PM
Oh what could have been

narrow290 - 12/6/2023, 2:44 PM
@HammerLegFoot - Jesse Plemons?
tBHzHomer - 12/6/2023, 2:51 PM
@narrow290 - Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Matchesz - 12/6/2023, 10:14 PM
@HammerLegFoot - he was my Penguin dreamcast for the Nolanverse. Leo or Depp was my pick for Riddler
narrow290 - 12/7/2023, 9:29 AM
@tBHzHomer - What a shame. He would’ve been fantastic
narrow290 - 12/6/2023, 2:42 PM
Can't wait!!

Interesting that I would bet cash money that Farrell's Penguin would beat the [frick]ing starch out of Phoenix's Joker and I've never thought that about those two characters in 50+ years...

@GhostDog - Colin Farrell is Robert De Niro as James Gandolfini as Richard Kind as the Penguin. Kirk Lazarus would be proud.

I was skeptical on Farrell as Penguin but he's perfect in the role. Hope they go TV-MA
tmp3 - 12/6/2023, 3:16 PM
Want Penguin to be good but keeping my expectations low just in case. Farrell is [frick]ing fantastic in that role. What a killer lineup of baddies between him, dano and keoghan (i still have faith - he's too good of an actor that with more screen-time i'm sure he'll shine)
Skarsgard was never cast for welcome to derry... hmm... no pennywise in an IT prequel? Bizarre haha.

Boring shit.

Hyped for TDs4, Tokyo Vice s2, Penguin, HotDs2.

@Fares - that took way too long. I really don't like how the season ended on a cliffhanger and there was no word on a second season
Fares - 12/6/2023, 6:13 PM
@bkmeijer1 - Oh that's probably the worst cliffhanger I've watched in recent memory for sure. Thankfully, I forgot all about the show in the time that it took them to make a second season, so I wasn't counting the days or anything...until this promo reminded me. I'm just happy that it got renewed honestly, because I had a feeling that it didn't do well enough.
bkmeijer1 - 12/7/2023, 2:36 AM
@Fares - same. It's the reason I don't like cliffhangers in general, because in today's tv climate you never know if a show gets renewed or not
bkmeijer1 - 12/6/2023, 5:04 PM
Lots of shows to look forward too. WBD may have made some questionable choices, but greenlighting The Penguin, True Detective S4, Tokyo Vice S2, The Last of Us S2, White Lotus S3 and House of the Dragon S2 aren't amongst them.
TheJester187 - 12/6/2023, 8:21 PM
Why is it taking long to reveal who is playing Pennywise?
Himura - 12/6/2023, 9:19 PM
Just give me one more season of Warrior pls
marvel72 - 12/6/2023, 10:24 PM
I will definitely watch...

House Of The Dragon Season 2
Welcome To Derry

Penguin scared me.

I thought it was my Mother-in-Law.

NinnesMBC - 12/7/2023, 1:13 AM
Looking forward only to True Detective, not fully into Penguin despite some so-called praise that Farrell "stole the show" in the movie because it makes me question if we even watched the same film. But due to comic book completionism, I will check it out but with severe low expectations.

Spike101 - 12/7/2023, 2:17 AM
New footage? I think I might of downscaled that headline to ‘new inchage’ because there was so little of it.
