Max indefinitely shelved Arkham Asylum series
Jul 06, 2024 11:05 am

Divya Delhi:The highly anticipated spin-off series "Arkham Asylum," linked to "The Batman," has reportedly been indefinitely shelved by Max after a tumultuous four-year development journey. Originally conceived to explore the horror and psychological depths of Gotham City's infamous asylum, the series faced numerous setbacks since its announcement in July 2020 alongside Matt Reeves' vision of Gotham's Police Department. Reeves described the show as akin to a horror film or haunted house experience within Arkham, but subsequent changes in DC's leadership, led by James Gunn and Peter Safran, altered its trajectory. Despite these developments, DC remains active with new projects, including Colin Ferrell's upcoming "The Penguins" series and the sequel "Batman II" slated for October 2026, continuing to expand the universe for fans.
