Michael Caine On The "Cafe Scene" From TDKR; Says He's Up For JUSTICE LEAGUE
I don't think we have to worry about spoiling The Dark Knight Rises at this point do we? Well just in case, if you haven't seen it yet - spoilers ahead! One of the final shots in the movie sees Alfred (Michael Caine) glimpse Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale), and a slightly out of focus Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) in the cafe he always imagined his surrogate son retiring to when he gave up the cape and cowl. Some have taken this to mean that the old butler was simply seeing what he wanted to, and that Bruce had in fact perished in the explosion as the world believed he had - a vision of his soul finally at peace if you will. Of course that's not the most popular take on it, and it's certainly not one shared by Caine.
How exactly Bruce Wayne's old butler would fit into the planned DC superhero team up flick is anyone's guess, but Caine certainly sounds like he'd be up for it if asked. He also comments on whether or not what Alfred sees in his final scene from TDKR was real or imagined..
"They were there. They were real. There was no imagination. They were real and he was with Anne, the cat lady, and I was happy ever after for him as I told him during the picture."
That's that then! We know Chris Nolan is done with Batman, but would Caine be up for one more go around as Alfred? Well, Hero Complex ask him about a possible appearance in Warner Bros'. planned Justice League movie, and the veteran actor responds: "I said to Chris, “If they do it again and they ask me to be the Butler, I’m going to do it. I want 10%." As I said, it might be difficult to picture what role Alfred would play in that movie, but I say if you have the opportunity, go for it Sir.
