Default Should Alfred Have An Evil Twin?

Anyone who has seen David Cronenberg's masterpiece knows that Jeremy Irons can do an excellent job of playing a pair of twins. I think a good plot point would be for Alfred's evil twin to show up, knock the real Alfred out and tie him up in a closet. Then he would pretend to be the real Alfred and sabotage Batman's plans. Jeremy Irons would be excellent as the real Alfred and Alfred's evil twin. What do you think?

No, no, no, and no.

The evil twin angle is played out. It'd be a quick way to cheapen the story.

Sounds like a plot line from one of those hokey daytime soap operas.

Yes, but Alfred has never had an Evil Twin before, so this would be surprising.

Eddie Dean, I think you just made the best thread in this forum.

I'm glad you like my idea! I think it would make for a great new villain in a Batman movie!

Better than Hush, in any case.

Seriously though, I love Cronenberg and I still like that trope of evil twin when done well, despite it being done to death. Now, I am not saying that I necessarily want to see that happen, but either this thread is not as crazy as its title would imply or I am crazier than I thought. Make of it what you will.

Yeah, this would not have worked with Michael Caine as Alfred because he has not played twins before, but Jeremy Irons has played twins before, so it would work with him as Good Alfred and Evil Alfred.

Complete CGI. Then you wouldn't have to rely on Irons' ability to play twins (even though we know he was able to do that, perhaps he lost the knack for it) and Irons would have more time for his side-projects.

Also, should there be some slight difference in appearance when it comes to two Alfreds? You know, for the purpose of foreshadowing the twist to the audience.

Or something more inconspicuous, like slightly disadjusted necktie.

This thread. Lol.

Evil Alfred could easily commandeer the Batwing and kill Batman!

Maybe the evil Alfred can be the Joker ala Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?

at best I could see him being under some type of mind control (so Irons can play two different versions of the characters)

or maybe have Clayface/False Face posing as him, and have scenes with both of them together

There's surprising and there's bad, my good sir. This would be just plain bad. Like Joker said, it legitimately sounds like a plot taken straight from a daytime soap opera.
