Now that Gotham has ended, the eyes of Batman fans will turn to the premium network Epix for the next prequel series from the world of the Dark Knight. This summer, Pennyworth is set to arrive, telling the story of Batman’s iconic butler long before he started caring for young Bruce Wayne. On Wednesday, Epix unveiled the first full-length trailer for the new series, along with a stunning poster, proving that this will be nothing like the Batman stories you’re used to.
The new trailer shows a young Alfred Pennyworth (Jack Bannon), fresh out of his military service, starting an independent security company. In this new business, he crosses paths with Thomas Wayne (Ben Aldridge), who is in need of his assistance. Pennyworth is clearly more of an old-school spy thriller than a comic book adventure, and it will make fans see Alfred in a whole new light from here on out. You can watch the full trailer in the video above!
Along with the full trailer, Epix revealed the official key art poster for Pennyworth, which genuinely looks like the theatrical promo for a new Bond film. Alfred is shown in the forefront, with his entire supporting cast sprawling up one side of the art
Pennyworth is set to premiere on Epix on July 28th.
