Dammit, Rodrigo. I forget how much you go along with jokes. You're supposed to be disturbed! Okay, you seem mentally deranged enough already. Welllllcome.

I like this Hugh Laurie suggestion. I can dig it.

I want a different take from what we've seen with Gough and Cain in the last two series.

I'm actually all kinds of intrigued by the Dalton suggestion, that could actually be really awesome.

not gonna lie, the weirdest part about having a new batman franchise for me will be not having Oldman as Gordon.

Who ever gets the role, should be cast as a minder/personal assistant rather than a black tie/suit wearing butler - times have changed.

I still want Bill Nighy, 2nd choice be Dalton - think Brosnan would be too distracting - i always liked him as Bond and would be wanting him to save the day

Alfred dies in this movie during the first scene. They never show his face.

Timothy Dalton would be so awesome as Alfred. Although the idea of Stephen Fry as Alfred does have a certain appeal haha. He was great as Jeeves
