HBO Heading to San Diego Comic-Con with “The Penguin”

HBO’s upcoming series The Penguin is set to make a splash at San Diego Comic-Con this year, offering fans several experiences throughout the convention.

Fans will find a Hall H panel on Saturday, July 27 at 4:45pm with stars Colin Farrell (Oz Cobb aka The Penguin and EP – virtually), Cristin Milioti (Sofia Falcone), Rhenzy Feliz (Victor Aguilar), Matt Reeves (EP), Lauren LeFranc (showrunner and EP), and Dylan Clark (EP), as well as the official trailer to be released.

Outside of the convention center, fans will find a recreation of Gotham’s famed “The Iceberg Lounge” on Friday and Saturday evening at the Bloom Nightclub. The immersive experience will feature an “Iceberg Descent”, and navigate through wreckage left by The Ridder at the end of Matt Reeves’ The Batman film.

Partygoers will venture through the dark corners of the club to be inducted into the Penguin’s inner circle, with a multi-room experience, complimentary drinks, live DJ sets, and exclusive giveaways including Jefferson’s Bourbon tasting, and photo opportunities including Oz’s iconic purple Maserati. Guests will be able to uncover a password to give them access to the inner sanctum, 44 Below, the club within the club, diving deeper into the world of the series.
