Ben Affleck is a “lovely man”
At the Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success Awards, Absolute Radio caught up with Jeremy Irons where he was asked about how his Alfred will be different from Alfreds of the past. As an actor cast in the untitled Superman Batman movie, called Batman vs Superman currently, he kept true to his Non-Disclosure Agreement, and didn’t offer any reveals on the character.
But, he did say twice he doesn’t believe the script is finalized. Says Irons, “The script isn’t entirely finished… I’ve read a script. I think it’s not finalized yet.”
In regards to acting opposite of Ben Affleck, a high profile casting for Batman which has certainly generated a lot of chatter, Irons says, “I think [his casting] is a wonderful idea. He’s a lovely man and an interesting actor. I’m looking forward to getting to know him. I’ve only met him once.”
Production has not started yet for the Zack Snyder directed follow up to Man of Steel, but it is expecting to begin moving forward in mid-April. It’s all eyes on Detroit and the next movie as fans wait with excitement for the roll out of first look images from the studio, and hopefully even some images of a character of a mechanical kind with the Batmobile, which was confirmed to be finished by Warner Bros.
