Vanity Fair also has an interview with the cast which includes a new image (above) featuring Alfred.

 “I never in a million bajillion years imagined that I would actually get the part. Not only had I never been cast to do voiceover work before this, but also—it’s Batman! You don’t go from zero to Mount Olympus,” Linklater said who is known for Netflix’s Midnight Mass. “Then I got the call and I screamed so loud. I just ran and grabbed my kids and was just like, ‘Dad’s Batman!’”

The actor also says he paid homage to the late Kevin Conroy.

“I think it’s actually off my memory of Kevin Conroy’s voice,” Linklater offered. “When I actually rewatched the shows, I realized that it was different, but I had him in my head.”

Batman: Caped Crusader premiers August 1 on Prime Video. Watch the teaser and trailer below.
