New PENNYWOTH trailer shows first meeting between Alfred and Thomas Wayne

Pennyworth (EPIX)

EPIX has released a new trailer to promote the upcoming debut of Pennyworth. The first season of the Gotham adjacent (not spin-off) series will debut in North America in July.

The full trailer shows the first meeting between Alfred (Jack Bannon) and Thomas Wayne (Ben Aldridge) as well as teasing plenty of action featuring villainess Bet (Paloma Faith).

There’s a lot to take in but the trailer certainly goes a long way to show how the series will be highly stylised and seemingly quite violent. Check it out in the player below.

The network has also released new poster artwork for the series:

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. Production will begin later this year, with a series premiere slated for 2019.

Pennyworth stars Jack Bannon as Alfred Pennyworth with Ben Aldridge as Thomas Wayne, Paloma Faith as Bet Sykes, Ryan Fletcher as Dave Boy, and Hainsley Lloyd Bennett as Bazza.

The series premieres July 28 on EPIX.
