Jeremy Irons who’s playing Alfred Pennyworth in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on the red carpet of his latest film The Man Who Knew Infinity, at Toronto International Film Festival spoke with Toronto Sun a bit on his role in Batman v Superman, while also somewhat confirming the amount of scenes he has in the film.
In fact, he spent as much time doing “five or so” scenes in Batman v Superman as he spent doing all of Infinity
“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.”
This is not your father’s Alfred, apparently. Batman’s butler is more pro-active, even physical. “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.”
