First ‘Pennyworth’ Teaser Debuts

2 min read
I was on board early but when they cast Paloma Faith? Oh yes, please.

Last summer saw Epix giving a straight to series order for Pennyworth for ten episodes that focuses on our favorite butler that has ably served Bruce Wayne for years. As we’ve seen throughout the character’s history and alternate timeline material, there is a rich history to be had here (think Master Keaton for my manga friends) in how it could be handled. With a series premiere slated for summer 2019 with Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon from Gotham serving as showrunners, this look back at the character’s history (and completely detached from any other DC related project) looks like it’s going to be quite the ride according to the first teaser.

The cast includes Jack Bannon as Alfred Pennyworth, Ben Aldridge as Thomas Wayne, Ryan Fletcher as Dave Boy, Hainsley Lloyd Bennett as Bazza, Paloma Faith as Bet Sykes, Jason Flemyng as Lord Harwood, Emma Paetz as Martha Kane, Polly Walker as Peggy Sykes, and Jessica Ellerby as The Queen.

Plot Concept: Pennyworth is 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.
