Today DC released the first official trailer for the new original series Pennyworth and it looks pretty awesome. Focusing on a younger Alfred Pennyworth (Jack Bannon) and Thomas Wayne (Ben Aldridge), the trailer showcases the main story that sends the new friends deep within the criminal underworld. Alfred even has a love interest! 

The trailer starts with Alfred renouncing the army, wanting to make his own path in life. So he starts his own security business, working at an upscale restaurant to dissuade some ruffians. Which is how he meets billionaire Thomas Wayne. The young business man has discovered a “criminal conspiracy” and he needs some security after a failed assassination attempt. The organization behind it? The Raven Society and they’ve taken Alfred’s girlfriend. It’s up to the former military man to face this rising threat to save his boss and his girl. Will he be successful or will it all go pear shaped?

The Pennyworth trailer was better than I expected it to be. Still not sure how I feel about a young sexy Alfred but there’s a few things to get excited about with this series. Namely Paloma Faith as Bet Sykes who looks to be a total bada**. She’s gonna be knocking around so many heads and I can’t wait to see it. It also comes off as very British, which is really fun. I’m looking forward to seeing how they use these characters.
