It is a generally accepted truth that everyone Batman The prequel will eventually feature Bruce Wayne. But it doesn’t usually happen that way.
As announced yesterday at DC Fandome, Pennyworth, a TV show that is getting a second season on Epix, a network that I rightly have no idea how to watch Make his progress Alfred-centered prequel Plot in an unexpected way in season two. That is, with a certain, unexpected Batty bundle of joy. That’s right folks, Martha and Thomas Wayne will have a baby.
According to executive producer Bruno Heller, who apparently first shared the news with actors Emma Paetz and Ben Aldridge who are playing Martha and ThomasMartha will become pregnant in the coming season, and given Bruce’s lack of siblings, it seems likely that she will be pregnant with the Crusader herself. Which is certainly a choice.
But think of all the things you can do with a baby bat! Put a bat symbol in the ultrasound! Maybe the Joker could join the baby shower? You can recreate the cover of Nirvana Never mind! Oh my god just wait through the fourth season, in which Toddler Batman premieres. He knows 88 non-fatal ways to get you down with Lincoln Logs. He only cries when he thinks of Zorro.
Pennyworth will return to Epix for a second season at an unannounced time in the future. Hope Alfred knows how to change diapers.
