HBO’s Arkham Asylum Series Has a Brand-New Showrunner

0

HBO’s series about Arkham Asylum has a brand-new showrunner, adding to its carousel of creatives as the new show set in The Batman universe tries to find its footing.

Variety reports that Antonio Campos will serve as a showrunner and executive producer on the series, as well as its new writer. This is reportedly contingent on Campos’ version of the show going forward.

Campos’ credits include The Staircase, which also appeared on HBO Max, as well as a stint with Netflix’s The Punisher.

Arkham Aylsum’s writing room has been something of a revolving door since first being announced back in 2023. Initially conceived as a story centered around the Gotham PD, it was later reimagined as a story about Batman’s famous asylum. Multiple writers have come and gone since then, with Terance Winter and Joe Barton among those who have exited the project.

“The GCDP thing, that story has story has kind of 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, again in their origins […] It’s like a horror movie or a haunted house that is Arkham,” Matt Reeves said back in March.

Reeves is said to be interested in producing multiple shows focusing on Batman’s rogues gallery as multiple creators contest the DC landscape. No doubt James Gunn and Peter Safran will have something to say about these shows as well as Arkham Asylum, as they are set to take over as co-CEOs of DC Studios, where they will oversee DC’s film, TV, and animation projects.

Meanwhile, Colin Farrell’s show featuring The Penguin is moving ahead, with Farrell recently describing how the show will open. Arkham Asylum does not yet have a release window.
