A positive among critics and fans from the divisive Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was Jeremy Irons’ unique portrayal of Bruce Wayne’s butler, Alfred Pennyworth. Speaking on the topic, Comingsoon.net asked the actor if he changed his portrayal in Justice League based on the negative reception to BvS.
“No, Alfred is a stickler for staying the same. He tries to modulate everybody else. In a very gentle, English way he tries to deal with these people who can do all these extraordinary things in a very calm way, a very grounded way. He does not modulate at all. He sometimes lets Bruce Wayne out a bit on the lead, but he’s still attached.”
Did you enjoy his performance as Alfred? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section down below.
“Fueled by the hero’s restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, ‘Justice League’ sees Bruce Wayne enlist the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.”
