In recent years British legends Sir Michael Caine and Jeremy Irons have played the Dark Knight’s faithful butler. And now with Matt Reeves’s new Batman movie in the works, Warner Bros will be looking for another Alfred Pennyworth to star opposite Robert Pattinson’s Caped Crusader. Interestingly, the same source who originally leaked that the Twilight star was being considered for Batman has now said former James Bond Pierce Brosnan “has entered the chat party” for Alfred.
Ryan Unicomb posted the alleged leak on his Instagram, followed by emojis of an old man and a bat.
So surely this means that Brosnan is up for Alfred?
Certainly, the former Bond would be perfect for the role.
Not only as an older British actor, but also because he’d be convincing as a former British SAS soldier – an origin being explored in the separate Pennyworth TV series.
