Happy Monday heroes! We have some casting news for the upcoming Pennyworth series. For those who may have forgotten, Epix is coming out with a Batman prequel series titled Pennyworth. Today, we have our young Alfred who is Jack Bannon. To quote the official description of the series.
“The 10-episode, one-hour drama series is based on DC characters created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger. It follows Bruce Wayne’s legendary butler, Alfred Pennyworth, a former British SAS soldier in his 20s, who forms a security company and goes to work with a young billionaire Thomas Wayne, who’s not yet Bruce’s father, in 1960s London.”
Also, we have the description for Alfred as well.
“Alfred Pennyworth is a boyishly handsome, cheerful, charming, clever young man from London. Honest, open-faced and witty; you’d never take him for an SAS killer. Alfred doesn’t know how to reconcile the kind-hearted boy he used to be with the cold, calculated killer he was forced to become. He’s a man on the make, who doesn’t know what to make of himself yet.”
I am not sure if I am interested tuning in but with Gotham’s showrunner Bruno Heller being apart of this series. I will be apart of the wait and see crowd for this one.
