Michael Caine Drops Dark Knight Rises Hint
He says that his character Alfred will play a major role...
The official plot synopsis for the movie was released this week, but the veteran actor has suggested that Alfred will be a very significant component of the final instalment of Christopher Nolan's Batman movie trilogy.
In an interview with Empire magazine, the 79-year-old said: "It's such a plot point that I can't tell you, I think I'd go to jail if I told you, or I'd have to kill you!
"I get some great moments. I have a couple in this last one, too."
And he claimed that part of the secret of director Nolan's success was his knack for casting.
He said: "You look at the cast of actors that Chris has got, it's absolutely wonderful every time. And this one is no exception.
"He's got one of my favourite new young British actors, Tom Hardy, who I saw on television a couple of years ago and I went, 'Who the bloody hell is that?' And he's proved me right."
The movie is released on 20th July in the UK.
