THE PENGUIN Trailer And Poster Sees Oz Go To War With The Falcones In A Flooded Gotham City

Max has just released the second teaser trailer and a new poster for The Penguin. The series will premiere on the streaming platform this September, and this latest sneak peek offers us a better idea of what to expect. 

Starring Colin Farrell as Oz Cobb (a.k.a. The Penguin), the eight-episode DC Studios limited series - yes, that's how it's being branded in the press release - continues filmmaker Matt Reeves' The Batman epic crime saga that began with the 2022 movie. Developed by showrunner Lauren LeFranc, the series centres on the character played by Farrell in the film.

With Gotham City left in ruins by The Riddler's attack, Oz sees his chance to take charge of the late Carmine Falcone's criminal empire. Sal Maroni seems fine with that, though Sofia Falcone is making her own power play and unwilling to let her father's former lackey take over. 

Visually, this looks like the continuation of The Batman we were promised and a series which will set the stage for the movie's sequel (where we'd imagine The Penguin will have established himself as Gotham's crimelord). 

The now confirmed cast includes Colin Farrell (Oz Cobb), Cristin Milioti (Sofia Falcone), Rhenzy Feliz (Victor Aguilar), Michael Kelly (Johnny Viti), Shohreh Aghdashloo (Nadia Maroni), Deirdre O’Connell (Francis Cobb), Clancy Brown (Salvatore Maroni), James Madio (Milos Grapa), Scott Cohen (Luca Falcone), Michael Zegen (Alberto Falcone), Carmen Ejogo (Eve Karlo), and Theo Rossi (Dr. Julian Rush).

The series is executive produced by Matt Reeves, Dylan Clark, Colin Farrell, Lauren LeFranc, who writes and serves as showrunner, Craig Zobel, who directs the first three episodes, and Bill Carraro.

Based on characters created for DC by Bob Kane with Bill Finger, The Penguin is produced by Reeves' 6th & Idaho Productions and Dylan Clark Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, where Reeves and 6th & Idaho are under an overall deal. Daniel Pipski also serves as executive producer.

Check out a new trailer and poster for The Penguin below and stay tuned for more on this one in the coming weeks.

Yeah, color me interested.

To bad i'm not invested in the Mattverse, it is what it is tho!

@Doomsday8888 - I'm a massive DC fan but Matt's Bat movie tried hard to have an edge and it just wasn't working it was missing something ...was a bit of a boring movie...just wasn't feeling it.Having said that Farrell was the best part of the whole movie...he killed it!
Apophis71 - 6/20/2024, 10:31 AM
@JackBurton1 - It was definately missing something, good not great IMO, as even if I enjoyed it more than some other Batman based movies (like for instance BvS) I tend to feel it was the most forgettable (even if some of those I recall more are for all the WRONG reasons like Batman & Robin).

That said it set up for that incarnation to have a great sequel (and this spinoff) and deserved to turn a profit but...

...that is just me tho and for those who REALY loved the film great that it delivered for them :D
JackBurton1 - 6/20/2024, 10:39 AM
@Apophis71 - Oh it was 100 times better than anything the DCEU put out...there is not one DCEU movie I liked nor wanted to watch a second time.
lazlodaytona - 6/20/2024, 10:40 AM
@Doomsday8888 - yeah, this looks like the exact same tone of the movie: too long, bland story, and a been-there-done-that feeling. not very excited for this.
lazlodaytona - 6/20/2024, 10:41 AM
@JackBurton1 - Not even Wonder Woman?
Itwasme - 6/20/2024, 10:44 AM
@lazlodaytona - my biggest complaint with the film was just the music. It's a catchy tune but repetitive and they used it soooo much it created this repetitive feel. I really doubt this will have the same issue.
JackBurton1 - 6/20/2024, 10:50 AM
@lazlodaytona - Nope...that movie was boring with an awful villan at the end.The whole DCEU was a cluster of boring and mess.

I'm tring to have hope in the DCU....things are right there for the taking with stuff like Star Wars and Marvel being a mess right now.We'll see if the DCU leadership can pull it off.
lazlodaytona - 6/20/2024, 11:13 AM
@Itwasme - as a music educated, the was artistic merit to the main theme. It was just a tone being repetitive while dropping down a minor 3rd in 4-4 time. That was literally it. They added brass and percussion but the brass played same notes and rhythmic pattern along with the percussion also had the same repetitive rhythm.
lazlodaytona - 6/20/2024, 11:14 AM
@lazlodaytona - *educator
lazlodaytona - 6/20/2024, 11:15 AM
@lazlodaytona - *there was NO artistic merit...

man I suck with my sentences today
Itwasme - 6/20/2024, 11:18 AM
@lazlodaytona - haha. No worries. It was a good melody, but it wasn't long enough for a score and like you mention there was so much repetition.
lazlodaytona - 6/20/2024, 12:11 PM
@Itwasme - That's just it; that's not considered a melody. It's an ostinato song = same notes and rhythm continuously.
Really, the only thing that changed was the dynamics. Soft to loud slowly going forward.

@JackBurton1 - it wasn't boring batman was meant to be the world's greatest detective for 2 years as a hero. Learning about his environment in Gotham is a challenge. I don't know how any of that is boring useless you are a Snyder cult
Earleverlasting - 6/21/2024, 4:19 AM
@lazlodaytona - Shut up keep your comment to yourself
WarMonkey - 6/21/2024, 6:56 AM
@Earleverlasting - My biggest problem was that the things he was just learning in year 2 were things he should have already learned like ten years prior before he even put on the cowl.
lazlodaytona - 6/21/2024, 7:10 AM
@Earleverlasting - um, no. I will not shut up just because some dude sitting with his laptop told me to do so because he disagrees with me.

I apologize if you despised my comments. However, this is a place where we are free to voice our opinion and treat each other with the same or differing opinions with respect.
JackBurton1 - 6/25/2024, 11:40 AM
@Earleverlasting - The DCEU was a mess of turds...The Batman was on the boring side.You don't have to be in a cult to believe both of those are true.
FireandBlood - 6/20/2024, 10:06 AM
Yeah, they’re cooking 😎
harryba11zack - 6/20/2024, 10:09 AM
he was the only good thing in the film so hopefully this will be good. the stupid camera shots with the high focus blur really needs to die, it doesn't make the shots more arty, it just makes it look cheap and hurts to look at. It ruined the action in the third act of the film.
JackBurton1 - 6/20/2024, 10:19 AM
@harryba11zack - I agree...very average movie but Farrell killed his part..he was great!
Smoothcat - 6/20/2024, 10:45 AM
@harryba11zack - lies
harryba11zack - 6/20/2024, 11:05 AM
@Smoothcat - ? which part?
HashTagSwagg - 6/20/2024, 11:07 AM
@Smoothcat - That entire fight scene with him on the rafters was blurred out to shit in order to hide the dodgy green screen work. It was a damn eyesore.

@HashTagSwagg - I will say some of the scenes that used "The Volume" did so to great effect. Some of it you can kinda tell, other parts were used seamlessly. Which sucks because I had high hopes for the reimagining of the old tech. But for the most part these studios have not used it correctly. A lot of it looks so stagey.
Apophis71 - 6/20/2024, 10:12 AM
OK, looks good thus far, color me way more interested :D

Woke up this morning, got myself a umbrella.

@IronGenesis - Haha. Nice.
DarthOmega - 6/20/2024, 11:04 AM
@IronGenesis - He used the word "Woke" omg someone stop him!
WarMonkey - 6/21/2024, 7:00 AM
@DarthOmega - This made me laugh. Thank you for the good vibes! LMAO
TheVisionary25 - 6/20/2024, 10:30 AM
Seems decent so far , definitely a gangster crime drama set in the Batman world…

Has a No Man’s land-esque vibe with the flooded and destroyed city and people trying to fill a power vaccuum which I like!!.

Good cast too so I’ll give it a shot!!.

I was hoping that it would be able to maintain the level of visual presentation of The Batman, but you could tell it's not quite there. It's okay.
DarthOmega - 6/20/2024, 10:58 AM
@Fares - I'm a bit happy they didn't completely rip off Greig Fraser's cinematography. They managed to keep the look of Gotham but the lens is from Oz's perspective. Sets it apart while keeping it familiar.
HermanM - 6/20/2024, 10:34 AM
New Big Boy Caprice prequel looks great
Itwasme - 6/20/2024, 10:36 AM
Looks great to me. It's a great premise to play around with, but I can't help but pick up on the similarities between this and my divorce... this is pretty much shot for shot what happened.

@Itwasme - I told you not to sign your life rights over to WBD!
