Gotham has gotten a new citizen as Cristin Milioti has joined the cast of The Penguin.
It was revealed on Monday that Cristin Milioti (Made for Love, How I Met Your Mother) has joined the cast of the upcoming The Penguin series. She will be playing Sofia Falcone, the daughter of Carmine Falcone who was played by John Turturro in The Batman. She will be butting heads with Colin Farrell’s Oswald Cobblepot as she feels she has a claim to controlling Gotham’s underworld following her father’s death.
Farrell recently revealed when the series would take place, saying “It starts a week after The Batman ends, so Gotham is still somewhat underwater.” He went on to add, “I read the first script for the first episode, and it opens up with my feet splashing through the water in Falcone’s office.”.
Craig Zobel (The Mare of Easttown) has signed on to direct the first two episodes of The Penguin. He will also be serving as an executive producer on the project.
The Penguin project has been discussed for some time and was ordered straight to series shortly after the premiere of The Batman in March 2021. Colin Farrell will reprise his role from the film.
Matt Reeves’ 6th & Idaho Productions, Dylan Clark Productions, and Warner Bros. Television are all working on the series. Daniel Pipski from 6th & Idaho Production will also serve as an executive producer along with Rafi Crohn as a co-executive producer.
No details on the length of the series or a potential debut have been announced as of yet.
