There’s a special place in my heart for the Timothy Dalton Bond movies, so finding out he’ll be a more badass Alfred in Batman Vs. Superman sounds amazing as long as he describes things as the “soize of a tang-ah-reen.” Cosmic Book News has the scoop again, so it’s time to admit Zack Snyder has taken up blogging which truly is the life of kings. *throws bowl of grapes at Photo Boy’s head* Thank you! These were delicious!

We are told it is by no means official, but Snyder, and to an extent David Goyer, have ideas for the major supporting cast members already. We are told Timothy Dalton is being looked at for a different take on Alfred Pennyworth as an example of something that is being thrown about.

ALFRED: *cocks machine gun* Need me to come along, sir? These Jokers can be trouble.
BRUCE: Pahk the fahking cah with your Chahlene lahbstahs and da gawdamn Sahx you fahking queeah wickid pissa Jokah Southie sahn of a bitch.
ALFRED: … I bloody told your mother not to drink while she was pregnant.
BRUCE: I’m the fahkin Batman, retahd. NOMAAAAHHHHH!

    Now that I know that Ben AFLAC is the new Batman, any further news surrounding this series will go in one ear and dribble out the other.

    Kind of like when my wife has to remind me 5 times that her niece’s birthday is next weekend.

    Yeah, whatever. They’ll “reboot” the series again before they even finish filming the first one in this reboot. The next one will feature Justin Bieber as Batman and Taylor Swift as Catwoman, with Miley Cyrus as Batman’s most-feared nemesis, The Tongue.

    I like him but just can’t imagine him as Alfred. But at this point who cares. I have no interest in this yet another reboot, remake, whatever, etc…

    Hey SuperFish,

    could you please write all dialogue for all of Ben’s upcoming and future movies, TV appearances, any and all screen time and of course, all award ceremonies, and store openings for the rest of eternity?

    please and thank you.

    He was wonderful in Hot Fuzz, but then everyone was.

  6. Why does Alfred have to be British? Why not German or Inuit or Jamaican?

  7. Dalton as Alfred is an inspired choice. Very cool.

    Alfred can’t be hotter than Wayne
