PENNYWORTH: Batman Prequel Series Adds Emma Paetz As Martha Kane And Jessica Ellerby As The Queen

Epix's upcoming Batman prequel series Pennyworth has added Emma Paetz (Gentleman Jack) as the future mother of Bruce Wayne, and Jessica Ellerby (Lovesick) as a character known only as "The Queen"...

We recently got our first official look at Jack Bannon as the younger incarnation of Batman's loyal butler Alfred Pennyworth, and now Deadline reports that the upcoming Epix series has added two more key players.

Emma Paetz (Gentleman Jack) will take on the series regular role of Martha Kane (eventual wife of Thomas and mother of Bruce, Martha Wayne); while Jessica Ellerby (Lovesick) will recur as The Queen. No details on this character are provided, but there's a chance she'll be a take on Green Arrow villain Isabel Rochev.

We still don't know a whole lot about this R-rated origin story, but it has been confirmed that Alfred will team-up with Thomas Wayne to form a security company in 1960s London. No established Batman baddies will appear, but the show is expected to feature "archetypal villains and classic villains of British literature."
