‘The Batman’ HBO Max Spinoff Series Loses Showrunner Terence Winter
HBO Max and Warner Bros. Television are going to have to find someone else to preside over Gotham P.D.
Terence Winter, who was in line to write and showrun the forthcoming spinoff series of Matt Reeves’ “The Batman” feature, has exited the project over creative differences, Variety has confirmed.
News of his departure comes five months after the show was handed a straight to series order at HBO Max.
The untitled series will be set in the world Reeves is creating for the feature film, with the intent being to launch a new Batman universe across WarnerMedia multiple platforms. It is said to build on the film’s examination of the anatomy of corruption in Gotham City. It is the first project announced under Reeves’ new overall deal with Warner Bros. Television Group.
HBO Max declined to comment.
