Serkis is in negotiations to play the Caped Crusader's loyal butler while Farrell is eying a villainous role in the upcoming Robert Pattinson-fronted superhero movie.

AceShowbiz - British actor Andy Serkis is reportedly in talks to serve as Batman's loyal butler in filmmaker Matt Reeves' upcoming superhero movie.

If the "Black Panther" star signs on as Alfred Pennyworth for "The Batman", it will mark a reunion with Reeves, who directed him in "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" in 2014, and its 2017 sequel, "War for the Planet of the Apes", reports TheWrap.com.

Pennyworth has most recently been played onscreen by Michael Caine in Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight" trilogy, and Jeremy Irons in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and "Justice League".

Meanwhile, Colin Farrell is also in negotiations to join the star-studded line-up as The Penguin, according to Deadline, taking over a role originated by Danny DeVito in Tim Burton's "Batman Returns" in 1992.

The potential casting news emerges shortly after it was claimed Matthew McConaughey would be stepping up as Gotham City's District Attorney, Harvey Dent, who subsequently becomes Batman's adversary, Two-Face.

Robert Pattinson is set to lead the cast as the new Caped Crusader, with Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as The Riddler, and Jeffrey Wright as Police Commissioner Jim Gordon.

"The Batman" is expected to be released in June, 2021.
