Michael Caine Gives Alfred’s ‘Origin Story’

Remember in The Dark Knight when Alfred tells the story about the bandit in Burma? That was such an out of left field story that you can’t help but wonder what kind of journey that guy has been on, and apparently Michael Caine knows exactly what it entailed.

In the below video, you can hear Caine explain the ‘back story’ he created for Alfred in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy. We’re not sure if this would be considered canon or not, but it certainly sounds similar to Geoff John’s Batman: Earth One.
