CB: Back when Ben Affleck was announced as the new Batman, Star Trek’s William Shatner offered words of encouragement, as well as making a pitch for a role in the film. Shatner tweeted, “Congratulations! If you need an Alfred let me know! ; -)”
A he was joking B no-one is that stupid to cast Shatner as Alfred.
This is your friendly reminder that Ben Affleck is Batman.
But Ben Affleck has proven he can act and also a competent director (something the man of steal needed). Shatner has done none of those things
PriceLine the Negotiator?
Depends on whether he can put on a good English accent. Casting him as Alfred wouldn't be any worse than casting Ben Affleck as Batman, or casting a black person as Perry White or casting a woman as Jimmy Olsen.
I still think they should get Michael Caine back in to be Alfred, he was amazing in the trilogy
