Variety is reporting that Clancy Brown is the latest name to join the cast for The Batman spinoff series The Penguin.
The series is set to expand the world that Matt Reeves has created, focusing on Farrell’s Oswald ‘Oz’ Cobblepot in the aftermath of events that occurred in The Batman.
Clancy Brown (whose recent credits include Dexter: New Blood and the upcoming John Wick: Chapter 4) will be playing the role of Salvatore Maroni, a notorious Gotham City crime boss that was repeatedly referenced in The Batman, as his arrest by corrupt Gotham officials saw the collapse of his criminal empire, allowing Carmine Falcone’s organisation to rise.
The Penguin is being produced by Matt Reeves’ 6th & Idaho Productions and Dylan Clark Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Reeves also serves as executive producer alongside Colin Farrell, Dylan Clark, Lauren LeFranc, Craig Zobel and Daniel Pipski. Rafi Crohn serves as co-executive producer. LeFranc also serves as writer and showrunner, while Zobel directs the first three episodes. The series itself will consist of eight episodes.
Clancy Brown joins a cast that includes Colin Farrell, Cristin Milioti, Rhenzy Feliz, Michael Kelly, Shohreh Aghdashloo and Deirdre O’Connell.
