With all the success of The CW and their DC spin-offs, Fox may want to follow in their footsteps. Fox currently airs Gotham and Lucifer and rumors are in the air for another spin-off.
DC has just registered a trademark in the name “Pennyworth” according to Bleeding Cool. The obvious reference would be to Bruce Wayne’s butler, Alfred Pennyworth.
Could it be the name of an upcoming television show? It is a possibility…
Two months ago CEO Gary Newman said this at the TCA press tour:
We’re really happy with the creative on Gotham this year. We thought the Rise of the Villains has been great, and it feels like a world that has many, many stories to tell. We haven’t had any conversations with Warners about whether or not they’d want to do a spin-off series. I think that would be an issue for DC. It isn’t quite clear to me that they’d be ready to do that, but it’s a good idea.
There is no confirmation, but speculation is a prequel to Gotham focusing on Alfred’s younger days in the military intelligence.
What are your thoughts on the registered trademark “Pennyworth”?
