Epix's Batman-adjacent Alfred origin TV series Pennyworth has added two actors, according to Deadline.

First up, Gentleman Jack actor Emma Paetz will portray Martha Kane - better known as the future wife of Thomas Wayne (Ben Aldridge).

Meanwhile, Lovesick actor Jessica Ellerby will play a character named by the Hollywood trade as "The Queen" - perhaps based on Queen of the Royal Flush gang, given the show's Batman connections, or potentially the literal Queen of England, where the show is set.

Pennyworth stars Jack Bannon in the title role as a former SAS agent in 60s London alongside Thomas Wayne, his future employer. It's executive produced by Gotham creator Bruno Heller, though it isn't directly connected to the other Batman prequel show.

No projected release date has been announced.
