Speaking previously about the film Farrell said: “I think it’s going to be an eight-parter for HBO about Oz’s rise to power, filling that power vacuum that was created when Falcone was killed. Matt [Reeves]The original idea was to have the Penguin show start about a week after the Batman movie ended.

“And then, if it works, if the trajectory is interesting enough and if the audience accepts it and we do our job well, we have the second movie – Penguin in the second movie and we will pick up where the HBO show ends.”

He said in another interview: “It’s dark, that’s what I can tell you about it. It’s really dark and really heavy, I think, it certainly was doing that.

Speaking about the story he said: “It’s a man’s rise to what he’s always dreamed of inhabiting, which is a certain power or social status. And Carmine Falcone’s death at the end of the film leaves this void for Gotham to fill.” .

“And so there are different people who are taking hold of that power and that’s Oswald’s journey, trying to get to the top, through extraordinary obstacles and it’s super dark. Lauren LeFranc wrote eight truly twisted hours of television.”

“I’m thrilled and honored to continue telling stories in the dark world of Gotham City – and what better excuse to channel my inner villain than telling the story of Oswald Cobblepot?
