Robert Pattinson set to appear in The Penguin series on HBO Max
Robert Pattinson will be appearing in the upcoming Penguin series as Batman.
The series picks up right after the flood at the end of Batman and is set in the aftermath and rebuilding of Gotham.
The show is now expected to have more connections to the wider Batman universe than originally thought.
Pattinson's appearance is seen as important to tie the series into the larger Batman universe.
The show's showrunner has experience in creating connections between different parts of a larger universe from her work on Agents of Shield.
The show is currently in production, with filming for the Batman sequel set to begin after its completion.
Pattinson will likely appear in just one episode, potentially in the last episode to set up the sequel.
Other characters from the Batman universe, such as Scarecrow, may also make an appearance in the Penguin series.
