HBO Max Announces New Batman Series
HBO Max has announced that it has given the green light for a new "Batman" series. The series will be set in Matt Reeves' upcoming "The Batman" universe.
"This is an amazing opportunity. Not only to expand the vision of the world I am creating in the film, but to explore it in the kind of depth and detail that only a long-form format can afford-and getting to work with the incredibly talented Terence Winter, who has written so insightfully and powerfully about worlds of crime and corruption, is an absolute dream," said Reeves.
Kevin Reilly, chief content officer, HBO Max, president TNT, TBS, and TruTV said, "Our collaboration with Warner Bros. and DC allows us to elaborate and grow fan connections across these powerful brands for years to come. This is Batman as most audiences have never seen before and we know fans will want to spend more time in this new world inspired by the film."
The series, which is the first television project under Reeves' new overall deal with Warner Bros. Television Group, will be written by "Boardwalk Empire" creator Terrence Winter and produced by "The Batman" producer Dylan Clark and Warner Bros. Television.
"The Batman" feature film will star Robert Pattinson as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon. It is slated for an October 1, 2021 release.
