Before he was Batman’s butler, Alfred Pennyworth had quite an eventful life.
In the trailer for the new series “Pennyworth”, Jack Bannon stars as a twentysomething Alfred, fresh off his service as a soldier for the British SAS and now working for a private security company.
His new client? Billionaire Thomas Wayne, the future father of Bruce Wayne.
“I’ll do my best to keep you alive,” Alfred tells Wayne in the trailer, which features plenty of action, romance and gorgeous shots of 1960s London.
The 10-episode drama also stars Paloma Faith, Emma Corrin and Jason Flemyng.
“Pennyworth” premieres on Showcase in Fall 2019.
