Destined to live in the shadow of The Dark Knight, the stunning finale to Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy is heading to HBO Max in mid-April.

3. The Nevers (2021) — April 11

A disparate group of mostly women in Victorian London gain superpowers in this original series, which follows the fight to protect the newly empowered from those who hate and fear them.
