Affleck and Irons Talk Batman and Alfred, Respectively Posted by: Bill "Jett" Ramey (Follow @BATMANONFILM)

Via EW.COM (by way of COLLIDER.COM), below you'll find a couple of quotes from Ben Affleck and Jeremy Irons on the BvS versions of Batman and Alfred. Here's what Affleck had to say about his Batman...
"Batman represents human beings, mortal men. In a world of Flashes and Aquamen and Supermen, there needs to be that guy. It’s interesting that he became the leader of the Justice League in the books – I’m not sure how that will play out here – but his humanity is also an asset."
And Irons on Alfred...
"Alfred is a lot more hands on in our film that he has previously been. He’s a bit of a grease monkey, and he’s very involved in the decisions Bruce makes."
EW also has a new image from the film of the Batcave. There are scans of it online, but I chose not to post it here as it's currently exclusive to EW.

Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs.
