I thought this was a joke, like "We will soon release a trilogy of movies detailing the life story of M, prior to enlisting James Bond."

"Followed by a child biography of Lex Luthor and the true story of Mister Mxyzptlk."

I suppose you can make a good story off any premise, but they really are milking the franchises aren't they?

I would watch the story of M. She was a tough woman who worked her way up the spy business. I bet there could be a lot of adventures there.

I'm just guessing there would be story there.

There are no illegitimate children...only illegitimate parents.

Heck ya, how a beautiful woman managed to survive being out in the field as a working spy and rising to the top of one of the most powerful intelligence agencies in the world, a male dominated world.
That is a hell of a premise.

I've seen the first two episodes of Pennyworth. It's really good. And definitely not for children.

I watched S1E1. I was a little disconcerted by the way they tried to "Gothamize" London, and the set designers seem to be working in different decades.
