During an interview with HeyUGuys at the premiere of The White Crow, Ralph Fiennes commented on whether or not he would be willing to play Alfred Pennyworth in Matt Reeves’ The Batman.
Matt Reeves’ The Batman is set to move forward with a younger actor wearing the cape and cowl, but there’s no word yet on if a new actor will be recruited to play the Dark Knight’s trusted ally, Alfred Pennyworth. However, Ralph Fiennes noted he would love to play Alfred in Matt Reeves’ upcoming Batman movie, having previously voiced the character in The LEGO Batman Movie and The LEGO Movie sequel:
“Yes, yes! I’d love to be Alfred! A lot of good people have gone before me, so I’d be happy to follow in their footsteps.”

Suicide Squad Characters That Can Appear In The James Gunn Sequel
James Gunn is directing The Suicide Squad for Warner Bros. but that comes at a cost.
When the first Suicide Squad was about to hit theaters DC fans were completely ecstatic. The trailers looked great and the feel of the movie was much different than the darkness that preceded it in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This movie was expected to be one of DC’s biggest hits and it turned out to be one of the biggest let-downs of all time.
Suicide Squad was bad and its reviews reflected that. It was one of the only movies I’ve ever been upset at and it made me want to leave the theater. A sequel was announced because the film did well at the box office, going through a number of drafts until James Gunn was brought on to write it. With James Gunn now officially set to direct The Suicide Squad, it looks like the film will be a bit of a soft reboot.
Last night was a bit of a DC maelstrom of news. We got the release dates and official titles of Matt Reeves’ The Batman and James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. Both movies will be hitting theaters in Summer 2021. Throughout all of the chaos a small tidbit surfaced about The Suicide Squad: the James Gunn-directed film will be some sort of relaunch with new characters and actors. Here are the characters I think James Gunn should introduce in his Suicide Squad movie. Hit Next to view all of my choices.
