Jeremy Irons Opens Up About BATMAN VS SUPERMAN; Says The Script Isn’t Finalized Yet


IronsbannerWe’ve heard from a number of actors when it comes to their high profile casting in Batman Vs. Superman. Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot and Henry Cavill are just a few of the actors who have commented on the movie, and what we might expect from it. However, with the recent casting of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and Jeremy Irons as Alfred, people have been waiting to hear from the newest cast members to the Man Of Steel sequel.

Well wait no longer, because at least one of them has commented on their upcoming role for the film. Absolute Radio was able to track down Jeremy Irons at the Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success Awards and ask him about the alfredwithbatmanupcoming role of Bruce Wayne’s trusty butler Alfred Pennyworth. “I don’t know how my Alfred is going to be,” he said. “We wait to see. We haven’t started work yet. It’s going to be interesting to see.”

They also asked his thoughts on being cast opposite of Ben Affleck in the movie. He touched on the controversy surrounding Affleck’s casting by saying, “I think it’s a wonderful idea. He’s a lovely man, a very interesting actor. I’m looking forward to it, I’m looking forward to getting to know him. I’ve only met him once, and I hope we have a good time.”

That brings us to the biggest part of the headline, the script. Irons revealed that he has read a script, but that he thinks it’s being reworked and not finished yet. “I’ve read A script, yes. I think it’s not finalized yet.” He was also pressed for some clues on the movie where he smiled and said, “No, nothing, wait and see.”

Out of all the castings, I have to say that Irons is the one I am most excited about. I look forward to what he can bring to the role. The script not being finalized, isn’t a big thing to worry about. The movie shoots in a month and a half, and part of the reason for the delay was to retool the script. For all we know it is done, and he just hasn’t gotten his updated copy yet. Check out the video of Irons below, and make sure to check back here at Comic Book Therapy for the latest on Batman Vs.
