There have been tons of fans speculating on Twitter lately over who will be cast as Alfred in Matt Reeves‘ The Batman. But the most “controversial” casting came from none other than Gerry Conway, the creator of the Punisher.

Gerry Conway took to Twitter and dropped this tweet into the world.

Maggie Smith as Alfred? People love talking about swapping the genders on established characters, but usually, it doesn’t really work. But this time I think that a female Alfred might work, it’s obviously different but not a bad different in any way.

And let’s be honest, Maggie Smith is already epic in everything she does and I’m sure she would play an amazing Alfred if given the chance. But what do you think, could a female Alfred work? And do you think that Maggie Smith is the right woman for the job?
