What does Lucius Fox have to say?
In an interview with USA Today, Morgan Freeman gave his thoughts on the casting of Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman in the Man of Steel sequel. Here are highlights:
On Ben Affleck as Batman: "This is the first I am hearing of it. My first reactions are 'Wow' and 'Good luck.' After the trilogy, I thought that no one would try it again for a few years more to let this whole thing die down. Because it's still there. So I don't know, I hope Ben does well."
On if he will return to play Lucius Fox: "If the new movie does have a Lucius Fox I don't think it's going to be me. It doesn't seem to work to mix characters in the movies. If you are going to change the lead character, you're probably going to change all the characters."
On working with Michael Caine in Now You See Me: "We worked together in Batman, but as characters who didn't have much to say to each other. I had a great time going face-to-face with him here. That was fun."
