But it’s NOT the one you thought based on BS.
This is just delicious on SO many levels!
HBO Max and Matt Reeves — the man behind THE BATMAN on the big screen — are teaming up to develop a police procedural series set in Gotham City.
Terence Winter, who created the Prohibition crime drama BOARDWALK EMPIRE and worked on THE SOPRANOS, will write and executive produce the series. THE BATMAN producer Dylan Clark and Warner Bros. Television are also involved.
And here’s the cool deal: It’s set in the world of THE BATMAN!
HBO Max says the series will be “set in the world Reeves is creating for THE BATMAN feature film and will build upon the motion picture’s examination of the anatomy of corruption in Gotham City, ultimately launching a new Batman universe across multiple platforms. The series provides an unprecedented opportunity to extend the world established in the movie and further explore the myriad of compelling and complex characters of Gotham.”
Here’s what THE BATMAN filmmaker Matt Reeves had to say about the project…
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.
No word whether THE BATMAN‘s Robert Pattinson (Batman/Bruce Wayne) and/or Jeffery Wright (James Gordon) will appear in the series.
A live-action Batman universe across multiple live-action platforms? Fantastic!
So much for those BS reports that Mr. Affleck had signed a contract with HBO Max for more Batman. – Bill “Jett” Ramey
