Batman V. Superman: Jeremy Irons Says His Alfred Pennyworth Is A "Grease Monkey"

Over the decades, we've seen a handful of actors play Alfred Pennyworth. Each of them put their own spin on Bruce Wayne's loyal butler, so don't expect Jeremy Iron's version in Batman v Superman to let Vicki Vale into the Batcave or tattle on Master Dick for taking the Batmobile on a joyride or even berate his push-up obsessed employer for not being able to lift a bloody log.

"Alfred is a lot more hands-on in our film than he has previously been," Irons told Entertainment Weekly. "He's a bit of a grease monkey, and he's very involved in the decisions Bruce makes."

Sounds like Alfred will be spending time in the Batcave working on the new and improved Batmobile. Though, I would have preferred them using a character like Earl Cooper (voiced by Paul Winfield), who designed and maintained the Batman's vehicles in Batman: The Animated Series.

In Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice opens March 25, 2016.
