They're biggest ********ters around.

I love how they claimed Tyler Hoechlin was being considered (which was crap because Affleck was cast at the beginning of the year)
Then they turn around and say, once they hear Batman is to be older, that the source now said Tyler was off...Because he was too young all of a sudden....****ing hilarious.

They appear legit. ..but this mysterious source they have, who is never directly quoted, is pretty BS himself. ...if he exists

I think Dalton's got Brosnan beat there.

Getting Dalton to go full on Picard would be strange cuz he looks like Stewart's younger bro already.

That would weird indeed. That would be like casting John Cusack and Alan Rickman in the same movie together. Oh wait......it was called "The Butler."

I am surprised Rickman is not mentioned more often. By Grapthar's Hammer!!

I'm leaning more towards John Hurt now for the role


Alfred, imo, should be just as tired and weary as Bruce is as Batman. But with one exception. Using his humour in doses, just to brighten his last few remaining years.

Dalton's doesn't need to do that. His current amount of hair loss is perfect for the character. Just have him grow back the stashe from Hot Fuzz and we are good to go.

Realistically, does the idea of a Butler still exist? In suit, yes sir, no sir, three bags full sir?

I'd much rather they go with the story that Thomas Wayne hired a friend, with a military background to 'look' after the family whilst he is away and to also be in charge of security, drivers, food etc etc - general father figure.

They get murdered, he automatically get's custody.

I just can't see a Butler being hired in the early 80's and they have that 'special' bond to make him god parent/next of kin - it's a different world than when Batman was created.

I want Alfred to wear a casual suit, no penguin suit with tails - i wanna see him old and tired, but knows his waya round a car (bat mobile) stealth and recce (bat cave ops) but also can lay a delightful afernoon tea - butler duties.

I have a question.

Are there any comics written primarily about and for Alfred Pennyworth?

If we're talking left field choices, I'd go with James Cromwell. He's already shown he can do a English Accent in The Queen , and he's also got the dry humor and care taker part, yet you could also believe the guy was a bad ass in a prior life.

When people suggest him, I immediately think of his Hot Fuzz look.

I'm liking that. He can obviously be bad ass....but from Babe, he's also gentle and fatherly (even if it was a pig )

I like it

Cromwell wouldn't be a bad Hugo Strange. No Alfred though.

He'd be great as Alfred!

Wouldn't he?

Cromwell singing If I Had Words to Bruce? No?
