I know this isn’t The Dark Knight Rises news, but I felt it deserved more attention than just a Twitter or Facebook post. It saddens me to report that Michael Gough has passed away at the age of 94. Gough is best known amongst Batman fans for his role as Alfred. Gough was one of the only actors to appear in 1989’s Batman all the way through 1997’s Batman & Robin. A lot of negative comments have been made about Batman & Robin, but I think we can agree on one thing — Gough’s performance was brilliant. Batman-News.com offers its condolences to Michael Gough’s friends and family. I’ve included a few videos of Michael Gough after the break, including a great Diet Coke ad from 1989.
