Fans of The Batman franchise are in for a treat as the latest addition to the DCU Elseworld universe, The Penguin, is currently in production. Set to be an HBO Max show, The Penguin will focus on the titular rogue, once again played by Colin Farrell. And new photos shared on Twitter by Just Jared give fans their first look at Cristin Milioti’s character, Sofia Falcone, in the upcoming series.
In the photos, Milioti can be seen sitting in a car, donning a white outfit with gold, hooped earrings. Her character appears powerful and in control, fitting the description of a Gotham criminal that runs in the family. In the comics, Sofia is the daughter of criminal Carmine Falcone, who was portrayed by John Turturro in The Batman.

With Carmine Falcone’s death in the climax of The Batman movie, it is uncertain whether Turturro will reprise his role. However, Sofia could potentially be a major player in the series and continue the Falcone story. The Batman’s universe is a great stage for interesting, gritty stories, especially given its classification as an Elseworld in James Gunn and Peter Safran’s reboot. The Falcone family, both Sofia and Carmine, lend themselves well to that kind of story.
The Penguin does not have a set release date yet, but with production in full swing in New York, fans can expect more exciting developments in the coming months. The HBO Max series is expected to continue expanding the Batman franchise, bringing new stories and characters to the forefront.
Colin Farrell’s portrayal of The Penguin in The Batman movie has already received praise for its unique interpretation of the character. And with Cristin Milioti joining the cast as Sofia Falcone, fans can look forward to a compelling and dynamic portrayal of the Penguin’s world.
The Penguin promises to deliver an exciting addition to the DCU Elseworld universe. With Colin Farrell’s outstanding performance as the titular rogue and Cristin Milioti’s debut as Sofia Falcone, fans are in for a thrilling ride in the dark and gritty world of Gotham’s most notorious criminals. So, keep an eye out for The Penguin’s release on HBO Max, as it is sure to be a must-watch for all Batman fans.
