First look at Jack Bannon as a young Alfred Pennyworth!
Epix has debute your first look at actor Jack Bannon as a young Alfred Pennyworth in the upcoming Batman prequel series Pennyworth. The new series that follows Bruce Wayne’s loyal butler Alfred, years before Bruce was ever born. Check out the photo in the gallery below!
The series follows Alfred Pennyworth (Jack Bannon), a former British SAS soldier in his 20s, who forms a security company and goes to work with a young billionaire Thomas Wayne (Ben Aldridge), who’s not yet Bruce’s father.
Alfred Pennyworth is described as a boyishly handsome, cheerful, charming, clever young man from London. You would never take him for an SAS killer, thanks to his honest, open-faced, and witty demeanor. Alfred doesn’t know how to reconcile the kind-hearted boy he used to be with the cold, calculated killer he was forced to become, and he doesn’t know what to make of himself yet.
Pennyworth comes from executive producer and writer Bruno Heller (Gotham, The Mentalist, Rome) and Danny Cannon (Gotham, CSI), who will also direct.
The 10-episode, one-hour drama series is based on DC characters created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger. Production on the Warner Horizon Scripted Television series began last October at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden in the UK.
