The Batman director Matt Reeves has confirmed that he will be directing a Batman spin-off series for HBO Max.

Reeves will be partnering with Terence Winter to create a series that will take place in the same universe as the upcoming Batman cinematic feature. The series does not yet have a title and it is unclear whether Robert Pattison or any of the other stars in the upcoming movie will make an appearance on the show.

What we do know about the series is that it will follow the detectives of Gotham City as they try to save face after Batman becomes the city’s favorite vigilante.

HBO Max said that the show will “build upon the motion picture’s examination of the anatomy of corruption in Gotham City, ultimately launching a new Batman universe across multiple platforms. The series provides an unprecedented opportunity to extend the world established in the movie and further explore the myriad of compelling and complex characters of Gotham.”

The Batman feature will be released in movie theaters October 1, 2021.
