Batman Begins - Morgan Freeman Q&A



Compiled by: Jack Foley

Excerpts taken from the London press conference held at The Dorchester Hotel

Q. How does it feel to be wanted all the time? I mean in the films...
A.
I don’t have work all the time. It just looks that way. But Michael [Caine] is right. It’s great to be wanted in a film; I’ve spent quite a few years not being wanted, so this is better.

Q. Did you have any preconceptions about what a comic book movie would be - because for a long time people thought they were the kind of poor relation to Hollywood movies; lots of money spent, but not a lot of character?
A.
I didn’t have a preconceived notion. I’d noticed that the comic book recreations have been rather different. When Warren Beatty did Dick Tracy, it was very graphic novel type - colourful with sort of outlandish make-up. The characters, Flattop, Pruneface, all those guys looked like themselves in there. Warren Beatty didn’t move his face to talk, like Dick Tracy.
Then Spiderman, of course, is pure comic book. So it’s hard to have a preconceived notion about what the movie would look like, because you haven’t seen them.
