Pennyworth: Jack Bannon Cast As Alfred For Batman Prequel Series At Epix


The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Jack Bannon has been cast in the title role for Epix’s Batman prequel series Pennyworth.

 

The series will revolve around Alfred, the best friend, butler and father figure to Bruce Wayne. It’s stated that the series will not be a Gotham spinoff , but an entirely new story exploring Alfred’s origins as a former British SAS Soldier who forms a secret company and goes to work with Thomas Wayne, Bruce’s father, in 1960’s London.

 

Jack Bannon (whose credits include The Intimidation Game and Endeavour) will be playing Alfred Pennyworth, described as a boyishly handsome, cheerful, charming, clever young man from London. Honest, open-faced and witty, he’s the kind of person people would never take for a 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.

 

Gotham showrunner Bruno Heller will be writing and executive producing the series, reuniting him with Danny Cannon, who will also executive produce as well as direct the pilot.

 

Pennyworth is set to commence production next week.
