If the name Alfred Pennyworth doesn’t ring a bell, don’t feel bad. For the most part Alfred is referred to by his first name only, and only when speaking to a stranger is he introduced by his full name. Alfred Pennyworth is the butler and legal guardian of Bruce Wayne (Batman) and depending on what you read, he has a military background with variations of accommodations. If you are watching Gotham then you see Alfred as Bruce Wayne’s first introduction to learning to fight and his military background is brought into play when he has to handle a gun or do hand to hand combat.

According to Bleeding Cool DC Comics has trademarked Pennyworth and rumor is that they are turning it into a TV show. There’s no word on what version of Alfred will be portrayed or if it will be an origin story, but for me my Alfred will always be the one from Batman: The Animated Series.
