As "Deadpool" continues to bring in a ton of money in the box office around the world, Warner Bros. and DC comics are hoping for a hit when "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" hits theaters in March. Actor Jeremy Irons, who stars in the film as Bruce Wayne's (Ben Affleck) butler Alfred, says fans will not be disappointed when the movie is released.
In an interview with ScreenRant, Irons said he couldn't reveal much about the film, but he did say that the movie will likely be one that people will want to repeatedly. He also teased Affleck's performance as the Dark Knight.
"He’s extraordinary. Quite extraordinary. And Zack Snyder, the director, fantastic vision. And I think the public [has] a great treat in store," Irons dished.
The Batman viewers will see in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" will be unlike any portrayed on the big screen previously. Affleck's Batman with be darker, angrier and out to serve justice himself. In an interview with Empire in July 2015 (via Variety), Affleck, 42, said he was at first hesitant to take the role because of his age until Snyder told him that Batman would be older in the film.
"It was something we haven’t seen. We have seen that Batman is willing to cross the line to protect people. That vigilantism has been a part of his character all along, and we are tapping into that mentality when faced by something as potentially as deadly as Superman," Affleck said.
Snyder has also revealed to Obsev that the film at it's core is a drama. Affleck has been known to have strong performances in dramatic films, such as "Argo," "Good Will Hunting" and "The Town," so it should be no surprise if the actor also shines in his role as Batman.
