Ina recent interview Jeremy Irons had a few things to say about the his character Alfred Pennyworth, his role in the Justice League Movie and the upcoming Batman solo film.
On preparing for his role of the iconic Alfred Pennyworth: “I remember an evening with Paul Getty, who was a neighbor of mine, now sadly dead. We drove up to his lovely house. A very nice gentleman opened up the car door. Then another very nice gentleman took the car and parked it somewhere. Another nice gentleman took my coat. And then another nice gentleman gave me a glass of champagne. And all those nice gentleman were SAS. I thought, that’s Alfred. He’s a man who will take care of his boss, whether he’s making coffee or pouring champagne or flying his airplane.”
Batman Solo Film & The Justice league Movie: “Of course, Ben’s going to make a Batman film next summer. He promises me there’s going to be a bit more of Alfred in that. In the Justice League we have seven major lead characters and I’m the butler to one of them. It’s clear I will not be dominating that film.”
Critical Treatment of Batman v Superman: “I was very pleased by the numbers. Zack seems to get a hard time from the press, which is strange. I don’t know if it has to do with the sort of secrecy that surrounds the making of it all. But the audience liked it, which in the end is all that matters.”
Irons is such a classy guy and we loved hearing what he had to say, but did anyone else notice when he said the Justice league will have 7 MAJOR CHARACTERS.
Hal? Are you there Hal? I just need a glimpse, that’s all.
