'The Batman' Companion TV Series Coming to HBO Max!

The Batman is getting an accompanying TV series.

HBO Max gave a series commitment to a DC Comics original drama set in the Gotham City police department from The Batman filmmaker Matt Reeves and Boardwalk Empire creator Terence Winter, Deadline reported Friday (July 10).

The series is “set in the world Reeves is creating for The Batman feature and will build upon the film’s examination of the anatomy of corruption in Gotham City, launching a new Batman universe across multiple platforms. The series will extend the world established in the movie and further explore the myriad of complex characters of Gotham.”

“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 longform 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,” Matt Reeves said.

It’s not yet known if Batman himself will be among the show’s characters.

“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,” said HBO Max exec Kevin Reilly.

The Batman, the movie, is set to be released in October of 2021. If you haven’t seen it yet, watch Robert Pattinson‘s screen test in the iconic outfit!
