The Batman Star And Venom 2 Director Andy Serkis Reveals If He Prefers DC or Marvel

Anything that includes the word ‘Batman’ is a conversational topic these days. And that eternal ‘Marvel vs DC’ debate is a conversational topic almost every day, especially when some filmmaker and/or actor works in both comic book houses.

Andy Serkis, who is best known for the role of Gollum in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, starred in Marvel Cinematic Universe as Ulysses Klaue in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Black Panther, and What If…?, and last year he directed Sony’s Marvel movie Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Now, his newest role is currently the role of Alfred Pennyworth in Matt Reeves’ DC movie The Batman. So, that pops up that infamous eternal question: “Who do you prefer, Marvel or DC?”, Serkis now offered the answer:

“I was just thinking, ‘Who’s gonna employ me the most after this moment?… No, look, I love both worlds… I love the brightness and the boldness of Marvel stories. They’re all mythologies. And I do like the darkness of DC.” He added of both franchises,” They touch on real human emotions, on world events, on what’s going on around us. They are great allegories for our times.”

Serkis also starred as Snoke in Star Wars movies The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. Although this wasn’t confirmed yet, it’s expected that he could return to direct Venom 3, which is in early development at Sony. Also, The Batman launched the so-called Batverse, and it’s expected that we’ll see more of Serkis’ Alfred in the inevitable sequel.

Co-written and directed by Matt Reeves, and starring Robert Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Andy Serkis, and Colin Farrell, The Batman now plays in theaters.
