That said, we don’t have an opinion one way or the other, because the true star of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be the latest Batmobile. In a sit down with Toronto Sun, the veteran actor gushed about how different the Alfred of the upcoming movie is than the troves of adaptations in the past. “Zack Snyder, the director, wanted to create a completely different Alfred”, Irons said.
New “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” details have been revealed regarding a possible villain for the ” Justice League” film and Zack Snyder clearing out rumors about Robin’s casting.
“In a lot of ways Luthor is more of a stretch than any character you would do in an independent movie, which is normally the place you stretch”, he argued.
“It’s a good point, and I’m saying that as someone who’s used to being disconcerted”.
He told Observer.com: “In that way it was not at all compromised”.
He continued, “the opportunity to do an interesting character on a movie of that scale is incredibly rare”, praising the work of screenwriter Chris Terrio (Argo) as the key. Now, the actor is finally opening up about what audiences can expect from his portrayal of the comic book character.
Meanwhile, TIFF is a possible lifeline for a special case like The Man Who Knew Infinity – based on the real story of Indian math prodigy Srinivasa Ramanujan (Dev Patel) and the Cambridge professor G.H. Hardy (Irons) who shepherded his paradigm-shaking formulas past the barriers of both tradition and racism in First World War-era Britain. So I felt like I didn’t have to carry any baggage from previous one’s. It’s sort of a reincarnation if you’d like.
But a movie featuring Batman is not complete without his trusted butler, Alfred.
Because of this, Jeremy Irons actually has a surprising amount of freedom with his interpretation of the same part in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – and judging from his recent comments, he’s taking full advantage of that fact.
Best known as the villainous General Zod, who battled Superman in “Man of Steel“, actor Michael Shannon takes a more down-to-earth role in the new drama “99 Homes”.
