While chatting with ET, Colin revealed that the show is still “early in the process of creating this world.”
“We have to get into what made him the man he is. And also, it will pick up where this film finished off I think. I think it’ll pick up a little short time after the last frame of this film,” he added. “We’ll get to go on a little kind of left turn off to the world of Oz and how he’s beginning to kind of dream of filling a potential power vacuum that may exist.”
While Colin does say that the it’s still early to tease anything about what might be featured on the show, he’s still excited to bring the character to life on the small screen.
“…It’s a lovely, lovely character, and explores vulnerabilities,” he says. “His violence is apparent, his propensity for violence and his ability to use it as a tool is apparent, but [also] to see we all have soft spots. Every single person. And to be able to find that location, dig around it would be fun.”
The HBO Max series is a welcome surprise to many fans, considering just how much screen time Colin apparently has in The Batman.
The Batman will be out on March 4.
