Andy Serkis: The Alfred/Bruce Relationship is at the Center of THE BATMAN


Via an outlet called LABIBLE.COM, Andy Serkis — who plays Alfred Pennyworth in THE BATMAN — had the following to say (not much) about the film…

“[THE BATMAN] very much about the emotional connection between Alfred and Bruce,” said Mr. Serkis.  “That’s really at the center of it. And it is a really exquisite script that Matt [Reeves] has written.”

Mr. Serkis isn’t the first cast member of THE BATMAN to praise Mr. Reeves’ script.  Back in January, Colin Farrell — who is playing “Oz Cobblepott” in the film — said that director Matt Reeves wrote a “beautiful, dark, moving…really gorgeous script.”

I’m on record saying here on BOF that Reeves’ THE BATMAN (and it’s sequels) will be more grounded than Christopher Nolan’s THE DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY — and nothing I’ve heard via interviews like this or on/off the record makes me think otherwise. #happybatdance
