THE BATMAN: Is Pierce Brosnan Up For Alfred?


Chalk this up a RUMOR (and I capitalized and bolded the word on purpose), OK?  And frankly, I usually (i.e. never) post this type of stuff on BOF, but there’s a reason I am and I’ll explain after the story.  So stay with me!

On his Instagram page, Ryan Unicomb (I don’t know the dude, but here’s his IMDB profile) posted the following with a caption reading “Pierce has entered the chat party” and included a bat emoji, obviously alluding to THE BATMAN

When asked by a follower if it was for Alfred, he “liked” the comment/question.

I know what you’re saying: “Who the f**K is Ryan Unicomb?!”  Well apparently, he works in the movie biz (albeit in a low-level capacity) and after asking some folks, he’s got some legit connections (apparently, the first word of Robert Pattinson being in the mix for Batman originated from him).

Yeah, it’s a stretch, I know.  But like I said, there was a reason I’m running with this here on BOF, and here’s the deal…

Back in February, I heard some scuttlebutt that Pierce Brosnan was in the mix for — wait for it — Alfred Pennyworth in THE BATMAN.  Here’s what I tweeted…

Yeah, I was vague as hell, but that was on purpose.  And to be honest, I haven’t heard anything about the casting of Alfred since.  BUT…

I think he’d be an AWESOME choice if Matt Reeves is so inclined.

So do the math BOF’ers…do you think that there may be something to this?  Could Pierce Brosnan be the next cinematic Alfred Pennyworth?  And if so, what do you think?  Post your thoughts in the comments section below! – Bill “Jett” Ramey
