The trailer, narrated by Chris Parnell (Rick and Morty, 30 Rock), introduces the tensions that fans will get to explore in the 10-part series. The voiceovers play with visuals of a Batman-themed radio aglow.
The series is described on the HBO Max YouTube page as follows:
A tale of life and death in Gotham City. After years of vigilante crime fighting, Batman prepares to become an official Gotham member of the Gotham City Police Department, deepening the rift between himself and Catwoman, who’s been using Gotham criminals as her personal ATM. Meanwhile, Two-Face is deteriorating, his two halves at war and his obsession with duality out of control — which his rival the Penguin is more than happy to take advantage of. The Riddler, after years in the shadow of Batman’s A-list foes, is desperate to have his work taken seriously. And the Joker has big, big plans for Valentine’s day…
