Wow, I never realised how much Callow looked like TAS Alfred.

this guy is still my #1 choice



Rickman has the charm, personality, and dry witty sense of humor to make an excellent Alfred

I've gotta say, Hugh Laurie is an interesting idea. I'm not entirely sold, but still interesting...

They have to give Alfred something to do I remember Caine saying he wasn't gonna accept the role in Nolan's film until he read the script and saw that Alfred was actually quite a fundamental part to the film. Okay some will take it for the paycheck but I can't see people like Rickman taking it if the role isn't strong enough...

I thought we all agreed Rickman was Brainiac. Screw Cumberbatch.

If he wasn't retired from acting, I think Sean Connery would have been an awesome Alfred, but oh well. Anyways, I was thinking maybe Ciaran Hinds would make a great Alfred.

Hugh Laurie as a younger ex-MI6 field capable Alfred -Beware the Batman-esque or Earth One





John Cleese as a more classic, humorous Alfred

It's a Snyder film no doubt if Alfred is included he will be a bad ass.

To be honest I think Alfred should be the only person from Batman's world in this movie besides the villain if this is to be a true or supposed sequel to MOS as they claim.

I would like to see Robin, but if this is Batman just starting up again then Robin can't be included once again. Now if they jump ahead say 5 years or what have you and Superman is established and Batman is established then they can include Robin as a small background character. But I really only see Bruce and Alfred being in the movie...along with a villain of course. Now which villain I don't know

Not this movie, when there's so much going on in the film. I think he can sit this one out.

Michael Caine really wants to play him again, dunno if Nolan would put a stop to it though.

I dig the Timothy suggestion very much. He's probably the best ex-007 for the role. If we don't want Lazenby, that is (lol)
Moore's too aged by now, and Connery retired 10 years ago. Brosnan's run as leading man/action hero is too close to present day, sort of.
