Default Re: Alfred Pennyworth in the reboot

In a way, Silva brought out some of the interesting things about The Joker that the movies haven't yet addressed, such as the homoerotic thing. There is also the potential for The Joker to briefly emerge as a human entity- but with the suspicion that it is all a ruse. Both B89 and TDK- phoney scar stories excepting- largely presented the character as daemonic rather than in any way vulnerable.

That's for a different thread, of course...
