Pierce Brosnan is looking likely to put all that Irish charm to good use.

The former James Bond actor is reportedly being eyed for a role in the upcoming Batman film.

Ben Affleck has hung up his cape and is making way for new blood to direct and star as the Dark Knight. Thus, The Batman will be helmed by Matt Reeves, while Robert Pattinson — who will next be seen in Tenet by another man connected to Gotham, Christopher Nolan — will play Bruce Wayne.

Filmmaker Ryan Unicomb has now posted a picture of Brosnan on Instagram, alongside the caption, “Pierce has entered the chat party.” It was followed by the emojis of an old man wearing glasses and a bat.

Unicomb was the one who initially said Pattinson was up for the part of Batman.

The emojis indicate that Brosnan could be playing Alfred Pennyworth, Batman’s trusted butler. He would follow in the footsteps of Michael Caine, Jeremy Irons, and Michael Gough.

The Batman is out on June 25th, 2021.
