Dalton for Alfred?

A Bond to play the Butler?

By Robert T. Trate     August 27, 2013
Source: Cosmic Book News

Cosmic Book News seems to have the inside track on the Man of Steel sequel Superman Vs Batman. Yesterday the site reported that Bryan Cranston will play Lex Luthor (read it here), with an announcement to follow after the Breaking Bad series finale. Now the site is reporting that director Zach Snyder is courting Timothy Dalton to play Alfred Pennyworth, Batman’s butler. 
“Now our DC Entertainment source has provided us with information that Zack Snyder is eyeing Timothy Dalton for the role of Alfred”.
“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”.


What do you think Maniacs? We have one James Bond for Indiana Jones’ father. Are we ready for a James Bond to be Batman’s Butler? Sound off below.

I think this is a great idea, the one thing I always felt the character of Alfred lacked was a License to Kill.  Now he will be the ounce for ounce equal to Batman in terms of Badassery and ten times his equal in the Punani department.

Ok let's put a stop to all this nonsense. Cranston signed for 6 movies. Affleck signed for 13 movies. All of this bullshit coming from some obscure website no one has heard of, and no one else is confirming this, nor has Warner Bros. come out to say its true. This is all bullshit. How in God's name does anyone believe Affleck has signed a deal to be Batman for 13 movies? Enough already.

I believe you have never signed up for anger management classes, or so I read on a website :P

Bs or not, I do like the idea. Of course, I liked it better when it was suggested on the SHH forums last month rather than when CBN reported this, but still, I'd like him for the role a lot.

 great news great addition to the cast. and if it was not true I think affleck would have come out and end the rumor as he has other times. fact is he's kept silence  and so guess we will find out sooner or latter right..?

 Jon Hamm should play as Lex. He's good at acting like an arrogant pri@#.

There's a tendency for fans to mentally freeze movie stars in time.

Fact is movie stars age like everyone else.

In March 2014 Timothy Dalton will celebrate his 70th birthday.

Presently he lists his hobbies as sitting on the porch, petting his cat "Mr. Pricklepants", and napping.

His workout regime consists of brisk walks through the mall in his new white sneakers.

Dalton (or Pop-Pop as he is affectionately called by his grand children) says he's going to have a proctologist check out his badass and the last Punani he remembers is the one that  occurred in northern Japan in 2011.

I'm sure he'll be a great Alfred.

 @blank, very well said no doubt..

 So who is going to play Vickie Vail?

Jlo or Garner?

 I love this choice. Yeah outside of Ben as Batman all of these reports are just rumors but I'm onboard 100% with all of them so far.
