GOTHAM Reveals Alfred Pennyworth Character Promo
Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth in GOTHAM
Fox and WBTV continued their Gotham reveals on Monday with a look at Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth.
More than just the Wayne family Butler, Alfred became primary caretaker to Bruce Wayne after his parents' untimely demise, and through his life acts as a father figure, a confidant, a second-in-command, and more during Bruce's transformation from broken boy to determined young man and finally the superhero Batman.
Unlike Seline Kyle's "cat ears" buildings and the searchlight behind Bullock, there aren't any major easter eggs we can see in this image. However, Fox did provide a new character description for Mr. Pennyworth, which confirms that this one will be closer in familiarity to the take seen in Batman Earth One and Beware the Batman than say Michael Caine's performance in the Dark Knight Trilogy.
"Alfred Pennyworth is a tough-as-nails ex-marine from East London who has loyally served the Waynes. Now, in the wake of their tragic deaths, he’s fiercely protective of the young Bruce Wayne."
