    Gotham City is coming to HBO Max. The streaming service has given a series commitment for a spinoff of Matt Reeves’ upcoming “The Batman” that will be set inside the Gotham City Police Department.Per HBO Max, the untitled series “will build upon the motion picture’s examination of the anatomy of corruption in Gotham City.”“Boardwalk Empire” creator Terence Winter will write the project, with Reeves and his 6th and Idaho production company producing with Warner Bros. TV. Reeves and Winter will executive produce alongside “The Batman” producer Dylan Clark.Also Read: 'The Batman' Director Matt Reeves Signs Overall TV Deal With Warner BrosReeves is helming Warner Bros.’ newest take on the Caped Crusader, which will see Robert Pattinson take over the role. “The Batman” is scheduled to hit theaters in October 2021, and also stars Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, Colin Farrell, John Turturro, Jeffrey Wright, Peter Sarsgard and Andy Serkis. It is not clear yet if any of the film’s cast will appear in this new series, though Wright is portraying Police Commissioner Jim Gordon.“This is an amazing opportunity, not only to expand the vision of the world I am creating in the film, but to explore it in the kind of depth and detail that only a longform format can afford — and getting to work with the incredibly talented Terence Winter, who has written so insightfully and powerfully about worlds of crime and corruption, is an absolute dream,” said Reeves.The series would be the second to focus on the Gotham police, following Fox’s “Gotham” which starred Ben McKenzie as Gordon in the days before Bruce Wayne became Batman. It joins other DC Comics-based TV projects at HBO Max, that include a “Green Lantern” series from Geoff Johns,  a J.J. Abrams-produced “Justice League Dark” and an animated Aquaman show.

    Henry Cavill in Talks to Return as Superman for Warner Bros

    Two years after departing the role, Henry Cavill is in talks to once again portray Clark Kent/Superman in films based on DC Comics, insiders with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap.The extent of Cavill’s return to the role — whether just for additional work to be done for the upcoming “Snyder Cut” of “Justice League” or for appearances in future films — has not been disclosed.The British actor first appeared as the superhero in 2013’s “Man of Steel,” followed in 2016 by “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and in 2017 by “Justice League.” He was set for further appearances in DC Comics movies, including a planned cameo in “Shazam!” but was instead abruptly let go from the job in late Summer, 2018.At the time, insiders said Warner Bros. was rethinking its strategy for DC Comics movies, moving away from the shared universe approach and toward standalone films. And indeed, just a few months after Cavill departed, so did Batman actor Ben Affleck, and the planned standalone “The Batman” was retooled to focus on a younger version of the character played by Robert Pattison.Also Read: Will the 'Justice League' Snyder Cut Actually Deliver What Fans Asked For?However, the larger context was that up to that point, with the exception of “Wonder Woman,” DC’s attempt to create a competitor for the Marvel Cinematic Universe was a critical dud. And while the movies weren’t flops, each one, again with the exception of “Wonder Woman,” earned less than the previous installment. But “Justice League” suffered from particularly public problems. In May, 2017, several months into post production — and just six months away from release — director Zack Snyder stepped away from the film after his daughter died, and WB hired “The Avengers” director Joss Whedon to ‘finish’ it.Whedon oversaw not just post production work however, but also weeks of unscheduled reshoots involving the entire main cast, and a recut that appears to have dramatically changed the original story. The end result was a confusing and often ridiculed movie featuring an unintentionally hilarious looking Superman, thanks to the fact that Cavill had grown a mustache for another film and the CG used to edit the mustache out of “Justice League” only kind of worked.Things change, however. At the end of 2018, “Aquaman” became a billion dollar juggernaut, while 2019’s “Shazam!” and 2020’s “Birds of Prey” were both critically acclaimed cult hits. But more relevantly, DC movie fans coalesced around the social media movement “Release the Snyder Cut,” which sought to pressure WB into releasing a version of “Justice League” much closer to whatever it is that Snyder had in mind.Also Read: TheWrap-Up Podcast: Holland Taylor Talks 'Hollywood' and a Look at How ReleaseTheSnyderCut Came to LifeThose efforts paid off last week when WB announced that something they’re at least calling “The Snyder Cut” will premiere in 2021 on the company’s upcoming streaming service, HBO Max. No word how Cavill will be involved but hopefully this time they lock down being clean shaven into his contract.Cavill currently stars in Netflix’s “The Witcher” and plays the role of Geralt of Rivia.Cavill is repped by WME, manager Dany Garcia of the Garcia Companies and Gang, Tyre, Ramer and Brown.Read original story Henry Cavill in Talks to Return as Superman for Warner Bros At TheWrap
