I know this is the Alfred thread, but that's another great shot of Affleck looking spot on like Bruce Wayne.

I see more Jim Aparo. The longer face, the cleft chin, the height, etc.

That's why Ben Kingsley would be perfect........

Dalton looks nothing like Alfred........

Timothy Dalton would be an interesting choice. I'm still pushing for Max von Sydow.

MVS could potentially croak it by the sequel!

However, they can always recast. And I think he's worth the shot.

As long as Alfred isn't taller than Bruce this time I'll be happy.

Simon Callow, Michael Gambon, Jeremy Irons, and Alan Rickman all get a thumbs up from me.

Would love to see Dalton as Alfred, though I'm intrigued by one of the above posters suggesting John Cleese.

I think I'd be good with Bill Nighy.

He definitely looks similar to the "Batman: Earth One" Alfred.



If Sir Sean Connery were to come out of retirement, he'd make one helluva an Alfred:

It's about time we had the bad ass Alfred

I'd like to see the character more as a hardened war vet. Who's more understanding and less judgemental about Bruce's war on crime.

I'd go with Hurt or Hopkins.

If Bruce Wayne is a little older in this movie, then I'd imagine Alfred is considerably older too.

although speaking of that, Malcolm McDowell would be amusing, if they're going for a stricter, tightly wound Alfred. it'd be funny to see Alfred intimidate Bruce.

I don't like the way Alfred's portrayed in the new 'Beware the Batman' cartoon, however I do like the idea that he's ex military or secret service and was employed by Thomas and Martha Wayne as a butler and personal protection - after all billionaires with young children are prime targets for kidnappings etc.
So with that in mind we need somebody at least 20yrs older than Bruce, who looks like he could've served in the army in his younger years. I like the idea of Jeremy Irons - could work, but how about Charles Dance? Looks good with the Alfred muzzie (courtesy of David Niven)...
