The latest Batman show isn’t even filming yet and it looks to be one of the best so far. Gotham was a good show that created its own universe. A new show based on Matt Reeves The Batman will be coming to HBO Max. Variety is one of the many sites reporting this news story.
The idea behind this show is to create a Batman universe that can be tied through different media. This is really what Disney+ is doing with the upcoming Marvel shows, just in a small dose. The show is set to be before The Batman movie, giving fans a glimpse of Gotham Citys corruption and filth from a different angle. This should be a darker take then Fox’s Gotham had when it was on the air.
Matt Reeves had this to say about making the new show with HBO Max, Terrence Winter (Boardwalk Empire), and producer Dylan Clark.
“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.”
The Batman isn’t expected to be in theaters until October of 2021. In my opinion, DC and Warner Bros are finally taking the right steps in making their own cinematic universe. Take a look at the new Star Trek show coming to CBS All Access this Summer.
