Now that we’ve seen Harvey Bullock and Selina Kyle (a.k.a. young Catwoman), Alfred Pennyworth’s reveal is up next.

Fox released the official “Gotham” character image of Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth on Monday. Pertwee will play Bruce Wayne’s loyal butler, whose tough love and overprotectiveness is only heightened after his parents’ tragic deaths, in the “Batman” prequel.

The origin story follows soon-to-be police commissioner James Gordon as he navigates the city’s dangerous crime scene bustling with super villains.

The cast also includes David Mazouz as a young Bruce, Ben McKenzie as Gordon, Jada Pinkett Smith as Fish Mooney and Robin Lord Taylor as the Penguin.

Fox has not set a date for “Gotham” yet, but has given it a straight-to-series order.
