Pennyworth: Ben Aldridge Cast As Thomas Wayne For Batman Prequel Series At Epix


Deadline is reporting that Ben Aldridge has been cast in the leading role of Thomas Wayne for Epix’s Batman prequel series Pennyworth.

 

The series will revolve around Alfred, the best friend, butler and father figure to Bruce Wayne. It’s stated that the series will not be a Gotham spinoff , but an entirely new story exploring Alfred’s origins as a former British SAS Soldier who forms a secret company and goes to work with Thomas Wayne, Bruce’s father, in 1960’s London.

 

Ben Aldridge (whose credits include Fleabag and Our Girl) will be playing the role of Thomas Wayne, young, fresh-faced billionaire hailing from the East Coast of the United States. Confident and extremely disciplined, this young aristocrat meets an unlikely business partner in Alfred Pennyworth. Jack Bannon was recently announced to play Alfred Pennyworth.

 

Gotham showrunner Bruno Heller will be writing and executive producing the series, reuniting him with Danny Cannon, who will also executive produce as well as direct the pilot.

 

Pennyworth is set to commence production next week.
