Matt Reeves' The Batman Eyeing Andy Serkis to Play Alfred Pennyworth

Venom 2 director and Marvel Cinematic Universe alum Andy Serkis is reportedly in talks to venture over into the world of DC as Bruce Wayne's butler and confidant, Alfred Pennyworth, in Matt Reeves' The Batman.

Serkis, who played Ulysses Klaue in Avengers: Age of Ultron and Black Panther, is no stranger to working with Reeves on Warner Bros. projects. The actor famously played Caesar in both of Reeves' additions to the Planet of the Apes franchise, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes.
