Pierce Brosnan Rumored To Play Alfred Pennyworth In The Batman

For some time now, we’ve known which actor will be suiting up as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ upcoming blockbuster, The Batman – and that’s Robert Pattinson. But with that out of the way, we’ve all been waiting to learn which actors will be orbiting him as Gotham City’s most familiar faces.

Before we proceed any further, we’d like to remind you that this bit of information is being regarded as a rumor for the time being. But in case you’re wondering why we’re giving credence to a cryptic teaser dropped on Instagram, it’s because this comes by way of the same guy who originally said Pattinson was up for the part of Batman.

Earlier today, filmmaker Ryan Unicomb posted a picture of Pierce Brosnan accompanied by the caption “Pierce has entered the chat party.” What’s also worth mentioning is that two emojis – one being an old man wearing glasses, with the other a bat – followed that. Additionally, one follower mentioned Alfred by name, and Unicomb “liked” the comment.

Granted, this doesn’t necessarily mean Brosnan will wind up being cast, but it’s probably not insane to assume he’s up for the role. If he does land the gig, he’ll succeed a line of fine actors such as Michael Gough, Michael Caine and Jeremy Irons, which would put a smile on the face of this James Bond fan.

Hopefully we learn something concrete before long, because I’m dying to know who else will round out the cast. So far, we’ve heard that Penguin, Riddler, Catwoman, Firefly, Two-Face and Mad Hatter will also join the party. Plus, you’d figure a stalwart like Commissioner Gordon would be a lock for any telling of the tale.

The Batman arrives in theaters on June 25th, 2021.
