We recently got a first official look at Jack Bannon as the younger incarnation of Alfred Pennyworth, best known as Batman’s butler and guardian surfaced and now it is being reported that the upcoming series on Epix has added two more key players.
Deadline is reporting that Emma Paetz (Gentleman Jack) will take on the series regular role of Martha Kane (eventual wife of Thomas and mother of Bruce, Martha Wayne); while Jessica Ellerby (Lovesick) will recur as The Queen. No full details on this character have been provided, but there’s a chance she’ll be a take on Green Arrow villain Isabel Rochev.
Now much still is not known yet about the R-rated origin story of the former British intelligence agent , but it has been confirmed that Alfred will team-up with a young Thomas Wayne to form a security company in 1960s London. No established Batman baddies will appear, but the show is expected to feature “archetypal villains and classic villains of British literature.”
