Epix has released another helping of the ‘Batman prequel’ Pennyworth. Alfred Pennyworth, of course, being Bruce Wayne’s competent butler who we’ve long believed had a very interesting history.
The show is all about that history. We follow Alfred as he leaves the British military and then meets the Waynes. This featurette suggests a quirky DC world with big names from history and fiction but perhaps no supernatural.
You can see the previous trailer for Pennyworth at Geek Native. Jack Bannon stars as Pennyworth, Paloma Faith as Bet Sykes and Ben Aldridge as Thomas Wayne.
There’s no news of any UK TV channel or streaming platform picking up the show.
Are you looking forward to the show or are you at max DC already?
