    Sean Connery would've made an excellent Alfred back in the day; it's a shame Warners never considered him for the role. Then again, he'd sooner jump off a cliff than affect a posh accent.

    He would have been Ducard / Ra’s if Batman Begins was made in the 80s.

    There’s a part of me that wouldn’t mind seeing him play Lucius Fox. Gone Girl proved to me that he’s more than just a comedic actor.

    I'd make Ralph Fiennes Alfred (dancing Alfred) and move Stuhlbarg to Penguin or Riddler. Matthias Schoenaerts as Azrael.

    I thought of Fiennes as Hugo Strange but I had to have Mr. Perlman as Alfred.

    Slightly off topic but I watched Suspiria the other weekend and I'm confused as to why exactly they did that with Tilda. It served zero purpose from what I could tell.

    McBride as Bullock is pretty funny. :applaudI could get on board with that for ****s & giggles.

    Logue is so damn perfect on Gotham, frankly it's gonna be hard to get used to a potential film version for me after that take. McKenzie's pretty rad as Gordon too, that finale ep should be pretty funny 10 years later, hope they go full-on glasses-and-mustache classic with the dude.
