We now get to have a look-see at Alfred in the upcoming origin story of Batman’s butler, Pennyworth.

Jack Bannon of TV’s Endeavour has been cast in the title role of the series, which comes from Gotham showrunner Bruno Heller.

As those who watch Gotham will know, charming and cheeky chappie Alfred – played there by Sean Pertwee – has a military past. This 1o-episode series will explore his post-SAS young years, wherein he formed a security company and hooked up with some bloke named Thomas Wayne…

American Wayne – AKA, of course, Batman’s dad – will be played by another Brit in Ben Aldridge (Our Girl‘s Captain James).

Check out the wonderfully rhythmic teaser just below – while we await Aussie airing details.
