Here's a teaser for that violent, horny Alfred Pennyworth prequel

Alfred Pennyworth, the elderly caretaker of Batman’s secrets, is young, fun, and full of you know what in this 17-second teaser for Epix’s prequel series, Pennyworth. As we’ve previously reported, the ‘60s-set series will follow Jack Bannon’s Alfred as he links up with Thomas Wayne, father of Bruce, to form a security company and [checks notes] take down Jack The Ripper?

Meanwhile, he grapples with his bloody background in the SAS in an effort to “reconcile the kind-hearted boy he used to be with the cold, calculated killer he was forced to become.” He also, as we see in the above teaser, fucks.

The ten-episode series debuts sometime this summer.
