Andy Serkis in Talks to Play Alfred Pennyworth in Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’ (Exclusive)
Andy Serkis is in talks to play Alfred Pennyworth in Matt Reeves’ “The Batman,” an individual with knowledge of the project exclusively told TheWrap.

Robert Pattinson is set to star as the Dark Knight. Reeves took over the directing gig after Ben Affleck stepped away from the role. Affleck was also expected to play Batman again but then said he would be hanging up the cape for good. Reeves has since described the film as a “defining” and “very personal” story about the Dark Knight, rather than an origin story in the vein of Frank Miller’s beloved “Year One” series.

Serkis would join the cast which includes Zoe Kravitz who has been cast as Selina Kyle, a.k.a. Catwoman and Paul Dano who has been cast as Edward Nashton, also known as the Riddler. In recent adaptations, actors like William Austin, Michael Gough, Michael Caine and Jeremy Irons

Frightfest 2019: ‘I Trapped the Devil’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Scott Poythress, Chris Sullivan, Jocelin Donahue, Aj Bowen, Susan Burke | Written and Directed by Josh Lobo

I have mentioned many many times that I absolutely love Christmas movies. And I mean any type of movie that has that great Christmas feeling – romantic comedy? Aslong as it’s set at Christmas, I’ll probably like it! So when horror and Christmas collide I am always first in line to watch it.

That said, I Trapped The Devil doesn’t exactly have a ‘Christmas spirit’ but it is set at Christmas,and the season does play a part in the movie.
