Again in 2016, as Gotham was taking off, one more Bat-prequel collection was being floated: Pennyworth, in regards to the early lifetime of Batman’s badass butler Alfred. And, apparently the urge for food for DC prequel collection is unstoppable: As Krypton performs out on Syfy, and Gotham will get a ultimate season on Fox, Pennyworth will flip up on Epix.
Based on the Hollywood Reporter, the ten-episode collection, from Gotham mastermind Bruno Heller, isn’t tied to the aforementioned gore-happy corruption drama, however as a substitute can be its personal factor, choosing up on the model of Alfred who’s a tough-as-nails former SAS man. Teaming up with Thomas Wayne (i.e. Bat-Dad), Alfred runs a secret non-public safety service in swinging ’60s London. In different phrases, it’s Steed and Peel with extra Bat-jokes and fewer catsuits. Effectively, until they determine to make use of Catwoman.
DC has a number of TV collection within the pipe, together with a number of like fellow prequel collection Metropolis heading straight to its personal streaming service DC Universe, however that is the primary to look on a premium cable community. It gained’t be the final, in fact, as HBO has Watchmen coming, however it illustrates simply how efficient DC has been at taking up the airwaves. Actually, all that’s lacking is the Marvel Girl prequel collection. Come on, DC, what’s holding up Themiscyra?
