John Cleese Speculated For Ben Affleck Batman Movie

Last week saw it hit the net that Monty Python actor John Cleese might be in the Justice League movie, and now John Cleese is being speculated for the Ben Affleck Batman film.

DCEU photographer Clay Enos recently followed John Cleese on Twitter; now it's learned John Cleese has followed both Zack Snyder and Ben Affleck. I think it's a pretty safe bet to say that John Cleese has been cast in a role in the DCEU, but which one is unknown.

I would agree with the Redditors who state that John Cleese might have been cast in Batman and/or Justice League in a role related to Alfred, as we know Alfred in Batman vs. Superman isn't just a simple butler, but also head of security and a former officer of the British Special Air Service Unit. We can guess that John Cleese might have served with Aflred and that they are friends (or even former friends). Others are reddit are also speculating John Cleese could be Darkseid, which of course can't be ruled out.

"Justice League" has a November 17, 2017 release directed by Zack Snyder starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon and Willem Dafoe an Atlantean, Nuidis Vulko.


Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
