Before he was playing surrogate dad to Batman, Alfred Pennyworth was a strapping young war vet trying to figure out what he wanted in life in post-WWII England. Epix's upcoming Batman prequel series, Pennyworth, is going to tackle that story, and the new full-length trailer has us very excited to see it.
Jack Bannon plays the eponymous butler who is working security at a night club, meeting ladies, and chasing down bad guys when he meets his future employer, Thomas Wayne (Batman's dad for those who don't know). It turns out "Alfie" is a real badass and we get to see his origin story this summer — and find out why he ends up at Wayne Manor very single in his later years.
Pennyworth premieres Sunday, July 28 at 9/8c on Epix. Check out the Season 1 key art below as well.
