Andy Serkis Talks Why He Wanted To Play Alfred In Robert Pattinson’s ‘The Batman’

Andy Serkis revealed why he wanted to play Alfred in The Batman alongside Robert Pattinson.

Andy Serkis is as prolific as actors can be these days, having worked on The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, King Kong, Planet of the Apes, Star Wars and the Marvel Cinematic Universe among others. Soon, audiences will get a chance to see Venom: Let There Be Carnage, which he directed, and in a few months, he will be the latest actor to portray Alfred Pennyworth in The Batman alongside Robert Pattinson.

While promoting Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Andy Serkis briefly touched on The Batman with Uproxx. He gave his ultimate reason as to why he signed on to play Alfred, and it turns out he just loves working with Matt Reeves:

“It was definitely to work with Matt. I’d love to be able to talk about it, but I can’t talk anything about it. I’ve been forbidden to talk about Alfred!”

Andy Serkis has worked with Matt Reeves on both Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes. Given their collaborative relationship, it appears that the positive experience that he had on the Apes films encouraged him to jump into the DC Universe as the newest version of Alfred. It’ll certainly be exciting to see him alongside Robert Pattinson.

The plot of The Batman is being kept under lock and key, but we know the film will follow Robert Pattinson as a younger version of Bruce Wayne, chronicling Batman during his second year as the Dark Knight of Gotham City. The film will also show off the hero using his skills as a detective more than what we’ve seen before in previous versions of the hero. It is also expected to be the first installment in a new trilogy of films with Pattinson.

Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the titular hero, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.

The Batman will hit theaters on March 4, 2022. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news regarding the upcoming DC film, and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more video content.

James McAvoy Shares Honest Thoughts On Returning As Professor X In The MCU

It would be bittersweet to see him go. The post James McAvoy Shares Honest Thoughts On Returning As Professor X In The MCU appeared first on Heroic Hollywood.

James McAvoy Shares Honest Thoughts On Returning As Professor X In The MCU

James McAvoy isn’t holding his breath over a possible return as Professor X in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years since we first saw James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender portray young Professor X and young Magneto respectively for the first time in X-Men: First Class. Although some were skeptical about the film when it was first announced, especially at the prospect of seeing younger actors play the roles made iconic by Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen, the performances of both James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender received much praise, and with the Mutants now part of the MCU, some are curious to see if they will be implemented.

Tom Hardy Requests Fans Not To Spoil ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’

James McAvoy was last seen as Professor X in Dark Phoenix, which was one of the last of the 20th Century Fox era of the X-Men film franchise. For most fans, the film ended much of the established stories on a whimper. Now that they will soon be part of the MCU, some are wondering if James McAvoy is hopeful to return. Well, his answer may surprise you a bit.

In an interview with Collider, James McAvoy expressed satisfaction with what he’s done with the role, and although he’s not opposed to returning, he’s not going to be devastated if the MCU moves on without him:

“I feel like, yeah. I feel like I got to explore, not everything I wanted to explore, because there’s always more, surely, but I got to explore a ton of Professor X, and I feel quite satisfied with what I got out of him as a performer. It’s not to say that you don’t ever want to, you never want to come back, and you never want to do it again, and all that kind of stuff. You never say never, as I believe James Bond once said. But I’m not chomping at the bit. I’m not going to be gutted and desperately sad if it never happens again.”

If Marvel Studios opts to recast Professor X, effectively replacing James McAvoy and/or Patrick Stewart, that new actor certainly has some big shoes to fill. Regardless of where the journey during the Fox era ended, fans really responded to James McAvoy’s portrayal of young Professor X, and at the very least, we will always have his great work to revisit no matter what.

Here is the synopsis for Dark Phoenix:

“This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.”

Written and directed by Simon Kinberg, Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain.

Dark Phoenix is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding James McAvoy and the future of the X-Men in the MCU, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
