Laurence Fishburne on ‘Batman v Superman’, ‘John Wick: Chapter Two’ and ‘Hannibal’

     March 22, 2016


With Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice getting released this weekend around the world, the other day I sat down with Laurence Fishburne for an exclusive video interview about the film. During our wide-ranging conversation he talked about when he first fell in love with comics, memorable moments from filming Batman v Superman, if any of Perry White’s lines are ad-libbed, deleted scenes, the awesome cast, and more. In addition, he revealed how he got into John Wick: Chapter Two, who he plays in director Morten Tyldum’s sci-fi romance Passengers, his thoughts on Hannibal only getting three seasons, History Channel’s updated version of Roots, and more.

While I’m embargoed from talking about my thoughts on Batman v Superman for now, I can say the best way to see the movie is in IMAX. A number of scenes were shot using IMAX cameras and they’re amazing to watch on the big screen. Trust me, see this movie in IMAX.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice also stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Holly Hunter, Jeremy Irons, and Scoot McNairy.
