Michael Caine Brad Pitt Is Batman's Next Alfred ... If I Had My Pick

Brad Pitt would be the perfect man-servant for Ben Affleck in the new Batman vs. Superman movie ... so says Sir Michael Caine, who played Alfred in the last movie.

TMZ spoke with Sir Michael outside Craig’s in Weho last night … and he suggested that a younger man fill his shoes in the upcoming movie … and officially nominated BP for the role of Alfred J. Pennyworth.

Not sure how Brad would feel about dry-cleaning the Bat-suit and scrubbing down the Bat-cave while Ben’s out saving the day … but it would definitely add some sex appeal to the role.

Or maybe Michael Caine can just play Alfred forever … please.
