Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Attending the Marrakech International Film Festival to receive a career tribute, acting legend Jeremy Irons briefly teased his role as Bruce Wayne’s loyal butler Alfred Pennyworth in the upcoming “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”.

The actor admits it is “not a large role” but: “He is quite a different Alfred than we have seen so far. Zack Snyder had very clear views about what he wanted. I would just say he’s more hands-on perhaps than just a butler.” [Source: THR]
