So, it looks like DC has another TV series in the works.

And it’s called Pennyworth. Which must mean it’s based on Batman’s guardian/friend/servant/butler Alfred Pennyworth.

Or it could be based on Julia Pennyworth, his daughter who is a character in the more recent comics.

And that’s all we know.

But we can certainly speculate, can’t we?

Bleedingcool are reporting that DC Comics has registered a trademark in the name of Pennyworth and, the way we see it, this could be a few things.

It could be a spin-off from Gotham – let’s be honest, Alfred is bad-ass in that show.

It could be a spin-off from the upcoming Batman V Superman movie – although we can’t see that happening with Jeremy Irons BUT Alfred in the comics does have a great backstory that would be an interesting series if they find the right actor to play a younger version of him.

It could, as we said above, be based on Alfred’s daughter – this could mean she is in the Arrow-verse, the Gotham-verse or the movie-verse.

Or it might be something animated.

Or none of the above.

Honestly, we don’t know… but we’re certainly interested.

Let us hear your thoughts.

Is it a DTV animation?

He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
