HBO Max is developing a series about The Penguin that will be a spinoff of “The Batman” feature, Variety has learned from sources.
Colin Farrell is set to play the notorious supervillain in “The Batman.” According to sources, Farrell has been approached to star in the spinoff series but no deal is currently in place. Sources also say that Lauren LeFranc is attached to write the script for the project, which is in its very early stages.
The show would supposedly delve into The Penguin’s rise to power in the Gotham criminal underworld. “The Batman” director Matt Reeves and the film’s producer Dylan Clark would executive produce the Penguin series under their 6th & Idaho and Dylan Clark Productions banners respectively. Warner Bros. Television would produce.
Netflix released the first teaser for Locke & Key Season 2, dropping exclusively on Netflix October 22.
Writer/artist Mike Mignola is coming out of his sort-of comic book artist retirement to draw his first new comic book in five years - and its not a Hellboy comic.
Mignola is in the middle of drawing Sir Edward Grey: Acheron, a one-shot comic set in the world of Hellboy (AKA the 'Mignolaverse' as fans have come to call it) but instead focused on a 19th-century paranormal investigator that is cursed with everlasting life thanks to some time spent in Hell.
This will be Mignola's first time drawing a full comic book since June 2016's Hellboy in Hell #16, the finale of that series, and - according to Mignola - the finale of the Hellboy character.
"Even after Hellboy was finished with Hell, I knew I wasn't," Mignola says in the announcement. "I'd relocated two of my favorite characters there - Edward Grey and Koshchei the Deathless. I figured the two of them were bound to run into each other (and they will), but first I had an unfinished bit of business for Ed to take care of on his own. It was a real pleasure to dive back into that world, and I look forward to getting back there again before too long."
Publisher Dark Horse Comics calls Sir Edward Grey: Acheron "the next chapter in the Hellboy Universe," which happens in the midst of Mignola expanding the universe's cast of characters from being just about Hellboy and the BPRD to Edward Grey, Koschei the Deathless, and more.
Mignola will be joined on Sir Edward Grey: Acheron by his long-time colorist Dave Stewart and letterer Clem Robins. The series will be edited by Katii O'Brien.
Sir Edward Grey: Acheron goes on sale on December 1.

Out of the ashes of Arkham Asylum, Arkham Tower rises in Gotham City… but the tower soon falls to the inmates and Batman’s allies are drawn back into the madness at the heart of Gotham, and the plans of the mysterious Dr. Wear.
Get ready for SHADOWS OF THE BAT, as Mayor Nakano signs off on the new Arkham Tower, and Batman and Nightwing grapple with their opposing ideas on the place of Arkham in Gotham City, and with a new villain, THE MAEGER MAN.

DC is launching BATGIRLS, a new ongoing series this December from the dynamic writing duo Becky Cloonan and Michael Conrad (WONDER WOMAN), and artist Jorge Corona (WE ARE ROBIN).
Batgirls Cassandra Cain and Stephanie Brown, who are only able to navigate the dark, gritty, and oftentimes scary Gotham City by leaning on each other’s friendship.
Mentored by Oracle, the Batgirls move to the other side of town where Barbara Gordon can keep a better eye on them while the hacker Seer is still invading their lives. Steph may be too rash sometimes, and Cass doesn’t speak much—but what they lack in similarities they make up for with their mutual respect and love for each other…and what makes them stronger together as Batgirls! This rebellious group of Super Heroes team up to kick ass, and try to make it as normal teenagers in this pizza slumber party of a series, packed with energy, attitude, and friendship.
Launching this December from Jeff Lemire, the creator of SWEET TOOTH, comes a new, twisted take on Swamp Thing with the three part miniseries SWAMP THING GREEN HELL from DC Black Label.
One of the great artists of modern DC history, Doug Mahnke (JLA, FINAL CRISIS), joins Lemire on this gory, gruesome monster mash where the fate of humanity rests in the hands of someone who isn’t human at all.
The Earth is all but done. The last remnants of humanity cling to a mountaintop island lost in endless floodwater. The Parliaments of the Green, the Red, and the Rot all agree: it’s time to wipe the slate clean and start the cycle of life over again. And to do so, they’ve united their powers to summon an avatar—one of the most horrific monsters to ever stalk the surface of this forsaken planet. Against a creature like that, there can be no fighting back…unless you have a soldier who understands the enemy. Someone who has used its tactics before. Someone like Alec Holland. Shame he’s been dead for decades...
On sale December 28, SWAMP THING GREEN HELL is a dark, dystopian tale for the ages.

Today, in the pages of Batman: Urban Legends #7, the future hero known as Batman Beyond returned to DC Comics with the battle of his life. In the new story, Terry McGinnis was tasked with finding out who killed his mentor, Bruce Wayne, and discovered plenty of new secrets about his city in the process. Now, with the legacy of Batman resting squarely on his shoulders, Terry McGinnis is embarking on the next chapter of his adventure in Neo Gotham.
As teased on the final page of his Urban Legends story, next year will bring the launch of Batman Beyond: Neo-Year, a six-issue miniseries from writers Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing and artist Max Dunbar, the same creative team who brought Terry back to solve Bruce's murder. Drawing inspiration from classic noir stories like Batman: Year One and Batman: The Long Halloween, Neo-Year will follow Terry as he sets out to rebuild the Batman legacy for himself, even as the very heart of Neo Gotham seeks to oppose him at every turn.
"This is the long-awaited next chapter in Terry McGinnis' life—one where he must learn what becoming Batman means to him in a city that doesn't want to be saved," Lanzing told SYFY WIRE. "We're digging into the noir tradition of Batman: Year One and The Long Halloween to push Terry past the lessons Bruce gave him and into a tradition defined by his own character and the strange new Gotham in which he operates. What's past is prologue. This Batman must go beyond."
