Irons promises 'hands-on' Alfred

Jeremy Irons has said that his version of Alfred Pennyworth in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice will be "more hands-on" than "just a butler".

Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, Jeremy revealed that director Zack Snyder had another vision for Alfred: "He is quite a different Alfred than we have seen so far. Zack Snyder had very clear views about what he wanted."

Jeremy added that his part in the film is "not a large one".

Batman v Superman will star Ben Affleck as Batman, who previously said he was prepared for a mixed reaction to his casting. He told Entertainment Weekly: "Everyone's entitled to their opinion. I wouldn't have taken the part if I didn't trust my instincts in terms of the filmmaking."

Hunger Games star Jena Malone will reportedly play the first female Robin, according to Michigan television station WILX 10.

Batman v Superman, starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck and Amy Adams, will be released in spring 2016.
