According to Deadline, actress Cristin Milioti will play Carmine Falcone’s daughter Sofia in the HBO Max spinoff series. The report reveals that the criminal heiress is fighting with Oswald Cobblepot (Colin Farrell) for the right to run Gotham City’s lucrative criminal underworld.
Fans will recognize the actress from her days as Tracy McConnell, aka the infamous mother on ‘How I Met Your Mother,’ but she’s come a long way since making her mark on the well-received sitcom. The gifted star has made a name for himself in films such as “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “Palm Springs”. In terms of the small screen, Milioti has made headlines like Peacock’s The Resort and the HBO Max sci-fi series Made For Love. And she’s no stranger to the crime genre, having appeared in The Sopranos and the FX series Fargo. But The Batman spin-off will be her first time playing an aspiring criminal empress.
With the cast assembled, it’s only a matter of time before production begins. Farrell said he believes they would start filming The Batman sometime in early 2023, and he also noted that The Penguin’s script was “so good. It was so delicious.” Between the casting news and story confirmation, there’s no denying that there are numerous reasons for fans to get excited about the HBO Max limited series.
