Pennyworth Trailer and Poster Now Online
Here’s our first look at the poster for the new DC tv series Pennyworth whoch starts again before Batman became the Dadk Knight of Gotham City.
The series will star Jack Bannon as the young Alfred Pennyworth who starts a new security agency after the war and eventually meets the young Thomas Wayne.
Here’s the official press release that came along with the poster.
From Warner Horizon Scripted Television, DC origin story Pennyworth is a ten-episode, one-hour drama series based on DC characters created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger. It follows Bruce Wayne’s legendary butler, Alfred Pennyworth, a former British SAS soldier who forms a security company and goes to work with Thomas Wayne, Bruce’s billionaire father, in 1960’s London.
In addition to Jack Bannon (The Imitation Game, Ripper Street) and Ben Aldridge (Our Girl, Fleabag), cast members include multi-award-winning recording artist Paloma Faith, Jason Flemyng (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), Ryan Fletcher (Outlander), Hainsley Lloyd Bennett (Eastenders), Emma Paetz (Gentleman Jack), Polly Walker (The Mentalist, Rome) and Emma Corrin (The Crown).
Bruno Heller (Gotham, The Mentalist, Rome) serves as executive producer/writer and Danny Cannon serves as executive producer/director (Gotham, CSI series).
Nobody’s certain whether this would be a prequel to Bruno Heller’s Gotham or would be something different entirely. I woukd dig this if you get to connect young Alfred with the grizzled old Alfred from Gotham.
