Could ex-Bond star Pierce Brosnan be up for the role of Alfred in The Batman?

So, another rumour for you all… but one that makes sense and could be very, very awesome.

It seems that Ryan Unicomb, a somewhat mysterious person who apparently was the first to tie Robert Pattinson to the role of Batman, on Instagram implied that Pierce Brosnan, ex-James Bond and pretty cool dude, maybe tied to The Batman too: “Pierce has entered the chat party” .

In what role, well, rumour has it it’s as Alfred Pennyworth, Bruce Wayne’s long-suffering confidant.

Brosnan, in the Instagram feed ‘liked’ a comment linking him to the role of Alfred.

Batman On Film are reporting that in February they had heard Brosnan’s name linked to the role as displayed in this vague post:

After Michael Caine in Nolan’s trilogy and Jeremy Irons in the current DCEU, Brosnan would be a very solid choice, perfectly capturing Alfred’s history of being military and secret service and an all-round bad-ass.

I like and I believe there’s something to it.

Here’s hoping.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
