    Hahaha, that’s a great story, wonderfully told on Michael’s part.

  • Bryanbreguet

    This back-story is soon gonna be canon within the Batman universe lol

    Seriously, I never read too many comics, but is this backstory even close to the actual one? Is there an actual back story for Alfred in the comics?

      Well it was mentioned frequently in Batman: TAS that Alfred was a former member of MI:6.  During the pre-crisis stage of the comics he was an intel agent during WWII.  Some storylines have him as a RAF medic or British Secret Service before working for the Wayne’s.  One of the more common though was that he was a retired stage actor.  

  • wahuahuau! Brilliant! This backstory should be turned into a movie!

    Batman Origins: ALFRED.

    I would see that!

     But yeah, gotta love ol’ Michael, actually his backstory isn’t too far off the modern comic book one…

    So basically, Michael Caine thinks back to filming Austin Powers: Gold Member to understand Alfred as a character.
