Ralph Fiennes will voice Alfred in the LEGO Batman movie…

November 5th, 2015 by Marc Comments


It looks like James Bond’s boss is set to be Batman’s butler…

Actor Ralph Feinnes will play Alfred Pennyworth, Batman’s loyal servant in the upcoming LEGO Batman movie at Warners.

He will join Will Arnett as Batman, Michael Cera as Robin, Rosario Dawson’s Batgirl and best of all,  Zach Galifianakis who is in negotiations to play the Joker.

The movie is a spin-off from The LEGO Movie and will be directed by Chris McKay, the animation supervisor on the first movie.

We love the casting and would love to see Fiennes as Alfred in a live-action movie too in a few years, but we’ll settle for this!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. 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….
