Jeremy Iron Says Alfred Will Be More Hands-On Than Just A Butler In Batman V. Superman

Jeremy Irons says his role as Alfred, Bruce Wayne’s butler and confidant, in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice film will be quite different from previous versions. 

"He is quite a different Alfred than we have seen so far. Zack Snyder had very clear views about what he wanted," Irons explained to Hollywood Reporter. "I would just say he's more hands-on perhaps than just a butler."

Irons says his part is not a large role due to the very large cast in the DC Comics film.

Irons is no stranger to big budget flicks and noted that Batman vs. Superman is not that different from Die Hard With A Vengeance in which he played the villain in the 1995 action thriller.


The Oscar winner joked that even Dungeons and Dragons was worth it for the “obscene amount of money.”

Batman vs. Superman lands in theaters March 25, 2016.
