I think this is the “Alfred in Speedos Section” the director, Kevin Altieri, referred to in a conversation yesterday. Unfortunately, at least in my storyboard, it’s not Speedos” but regular boring swim trunks. Never the less, it was fun drawing Alfred mostly naked; my favorites are page 31, panels 1 and 1A.
I also find it interesting that I chose to show Bruce shirtless as well during the phone conversation with Alfred. Partly this serves the function of “immediate read” for the viewer; in that the last time we saw Bruce in Act One, he was shirtless (or near-shirtless) , having just worked out. Showing Bruce again in that state spares us the boring necessity of an establishing shot.
