Pennyworth wraps UK filming

PennyworthBatman prequel drama Pennyworth has wrapped a six-month shoot in the UK.

The ten-part series charts the early career of future Wayne family butler Alfred Pennyworth as he goes into business with Thomas Wayne - father of Bruce - in 1960s London.

Jack Bannon stars in the show for US cable channel Epix.

Warner Bros Studios Leavesden was used as a production base throughout the shoot and the drama was made by Warner Horizon Television.

The Batman universe has a rich story world that also inspired Fox prequel series Gotham, which followed the early career of detective and future city commissioner James Gordon as he faced off against younger incarnations of classic villains from the Batman universe.

Danny Cannon was an executive producer on Gotham and is also a co-writer and executive producer on Pennyworth.

Batman last appeared in cinemas in the big-budget 2017 feature Justice League but a new film, currently known as The Batman, is reportedly planning a UK shoot.
