GCPD TV series is now Arkham centric

While talking to The Cyber Nerds podcast, Matt Reeves has revealed that the upcoming HBO Max GCPD spin-off to his "The Batman" will now be focused on Arkham.


“The GCDP thing, that story has story has kinda evolved. We’ve actually now moved more into the realm of exactly what would happen in the world of Arkham as it relates coming off of our movie, and some of the characters...almost leaning into the idea of...it’s like a horror movie or a haunted house that is Arkham.”

“The idea, again the way that Gotham is a character in the movie, I really want Arkham to exist as a character. You go into this environment and encounter these characters in a way that feels really fresh. And so in our work on Gotham, that story started to evolve, and it started feeling, ‘Wait, we should really lean into this.’ And then that’s kinda where that’s gone.”

Also, Matt Reeves revealed what the GCPD series might have been about to the Happy Sad Confused podcast:

“It was going to be year one because the movie is year two, and I wanted it to be the first appearance. But it wasn’t going to be a Batman story. It was going about about this corrupt cop, and it was going to be about how the worst gang in Gotham were the GCPD. Bruce would have touched paths with Gordon. It would have been someone to measure him against, but it would be a battle for his soul.”

This series will join The Penguin show starring Colin Farrell.
