This week in This Week in Posters, we have one of the finest crops of movie posters I can remember. Unfortunately, we’re starting with this character poster for Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Sorry, luck of the draw.
Anyway, I believe this one features Jeremy Irons as… Wally? Wendell? The W Hotel? I don’t know. Up until now, I thought I had a pretty good idea of the characters in Superman and/or Batman. According to IMDb, Irons is playing Alfred Pennyworth, aka Alfred, Batman’s butler. Which means the W stands for… Wonder Woman? Wikipedia? No idea. Everything about this one is a mystery, from the fact that the normally tuxedoed butler appears to be wearing coveralls, to all the debris flying through the air. I’m used to seeing this guy give advice on vichyssoise and drink Fernet Branca, excuse me if I’m a little confused by him wearing a mechanic’s suit and smart eyeglasses in the middle of an electrical storm.
