Superman v Batman has wrapped up production, so now the long (LONG!) wait for the movie to come out can begin. And the slow leak of details for the movie can come as well.
First up? Alfred! Played by the amazing Jeremy Irons in this movie. It was a surprise to many that Alfred would be included in this film, which led to the obvious question of what role he would play. Well, Mr. Irons has happily let loose details on his take on the famous caretaker to Batman.
“He is quite a different Alfred than we have seen so far. Zack Snyder had very clear views about what he wanted… I would just say he’s more hands-on perhaps than just a butler.”
Now, people who know Alfred (as in his comic book counterpart) know that he is way more than just a butler. He’s a competent fight, skilled with firearms, has medical training, and depending on which version you call your favorite, a former operator within British Intelligence. If Irons is to be believed, we’ll be seeing more of his comic book form than ever before.
