Batman V Superman: Jeremy Irons Is A Whole New Kind Of Alfred

We can expect a very different take on Bruce Wayne’s trusted butler Alfred Pennyworth in the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, according to the actor who plays him, Jeremy Irons (Dead Ringers, The Lion King, Die Hard With A Vengeance).


Speaking to The Toronto Sun while attending TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) reveals that he spent more time filming  “five or so” scenes in Batman v Superman as he spent filming his starring role in the film he was in Canada to promote: The Man Who Knew Infinity (based on the real story of Indian math prodigy Srinivasa Ramanujan and the Cambridge professor GH Hardy who championed him).

“It was a month in Detroit, which is actually longer than you’d imagine. But big films move slowly. It’s like a huge oil tanker.”

He then reveals that his Alfred Pennyworth is a bit more hands-on than normal. “Zack Snyder, the director, wanted to create a completely different Alfred. So I felt I didn’t have to carry any baggage from previous ones. It’s sort of a reincarnation if you’d like. I had a feeling I was creating my own Alfred, more of a man who can actually do anything if he has to.”
