Andy Serkis is in talks to play Alfred Pennyworth, Bruce Wayne's trustworthy butler, in Matt Reeves' "The Batman". While actor Colin Farrell is being eyed for the infamous Penguin.
The Penguin, who was once previously played by Danny DeVito in "Batman Returns", marks Farrell's first comic-book role since playing Bullseye in 2003's "Daredevil".
Serkis joins the ranks of Michael Gough, Michael Caine and Jeremy Irons, who have previously played Alfred.
Jonah Hill was previously in talks to star in The Batman, as either The Penguin or Riddler.
In addition to Robert Pattinson in the title role, the Matt Reeves-directed film will also feature: ZoŽ Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, and Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon
